It won't let me put the exacty addy in there to take you the rims, so you have to click on "colored range" and then click on the white wheels. They are the diablo, the phantom, and the tornado.
I'm looking for the 15's or 16's
Would these fit? I'm confused on if they will or not so I wanted to ask everyone their opinion. Thank you <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

I like - DIABLO.

As far as offsets are concerned... I'm not sure about the Tib but my Elantra had 40. Looking at your choices - non seemed to have a 40 offset for 15s or 16s, sorry.

What is it with big rims ? When I had my muscle cars in high school 15" were great - my z car had 14" !
Seems like a money wasting trendy thing to me. If you need the aspect to be the same for speedo reasons, what good does it do other than looks ? I am just gonna keep my nice, NON RICE official hyundai rims and get 205-50's or something. It will be nice and wide enough . You can get a whole set of killer tires for under $300. Then, with the money you save, get some eibach springs.
This little car will handle better than you can drive it after that.<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

We should all be lucky enough to be able to afford TWO sets of rims and tires. We all know what we like we also know what we can afford. Again another reason we drive Hyundais, their a good combo of both.

So why would you want 15's rather than 17+ for racing? And do you mean drag racing, or road racing?

When you get the bigger rims, is the tire diameter staying the same or getting larger? If it gets larger then I can definitely see why you'd want the 15's (more acceleration). For road racing I thought you want a slimmer profile tire (not necessarily 18+ though) for less side bend when cornering?

Technical details please <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
