Sorry if this has been covered somewhere but I searched and couldn't find it. What is the width of the stock 13" wheels on a 2003 Accent? And do you think an 205 or 195 will fit it? A 205/60 13 is an exact match for diameter and I'm wanting some more grab on this thing. It's my gf's and it time for new tires so I want widest possible. I talked to her about upsizing the wheels a bit but she nixed that.

As far as I know.. a 205 will not work on the skinny 13" rim.
I'm not even sure a 185 would work?

push her into getting 14" rims with 185/60/14 or 205/50/14 ;):

the stock rim width is 5" so there would be no hope of getting 195 or 205 tryes on them, i think the stock tyres are 175/70 13 if im not mistaken, the stock 14's are 185/60 14 tyres, unless you get wider wheels, thats what ur will probably have to stick with...

Hm, well I'll see what I can come up with. I was ready to take some $$$ out of the mod budget for my Stang and buy her a nice set of 17's and good tires but she shot me down. :dead: Oh well, I'll work on her some more. Thanks guys.

What are some 14's or 15's(preferably) that I can just swap over? I'd prefer alloys so I can ditch the steelies.

stock 13s are155/70/13 ^^

which Accent and what year?

as far as I know they are 175/70/13 for the most part, I work for a Hyundai dealer and I just bought some used ones that came from an Accent, these are for my Nissan Sentra and it is a known fact that accents have this size of tire, correct me if I'm wrong.

My accent came from the factory with 155/80R13 hankooks. They later upgraded them to 175/70R13. At least, at the dealership I go to.

Anyhow, I would suggest the 185/60R13 Sumitomo HTR200. It's a nice, grippy, and affordable tire, but don't drive it on snow/ice; it's a summer only tire.

I chose this over 205/60R13 because the smaller diametre will give you a slight bump in acceleration due to shorter gearing, shorter sidewalls to help you stay stable in the corners, (it corners SOOO much better than the stock cheapo tires) and 205 is too wide for a 5" rim. You could probably get a 205 mounted but the bulge would be pretty bad I'd think. With the 185/60R13 HTR200's, I found it's good enough to give you more grip than the accent's stock suspension can handle, so it's a good match. Your speedo would be a little fast, but that also helps keep speeding tickets away!
