Want Opinions...

So I'm trying to pick a rim for the summer (wallet allowing) and want some input. So far it looks like Enkei Lusso rims (unless I can find something cheaper with a similar look). I'm going 18", hung up on hyper silver, black or gunmetal grey. Also the EKM3's are nice too...

I like the middle one the most. The gunmetal or hyper silver are nice too.

I'm not a huge fan of black rims with chrome lips.

How much are you getting them for? What width and offset? What tires?

I'm leaning towards the hyper silver myself. I think I am stuck with 42mm offset, 8.5" width and P225/40R18... what brand tires, I'm not sure yet. I work at a Goodyear store, so probably a goodyear product :P

those wheels look alright, not sure if their suitable for the Elantra in terms of design. But as long as your happy with them thats what matters.

I would also go with hyper silver.

Keep us posted on pricing, curious what you'll be paying.

Will do... I'm open for suggestions as well. I'm not set on that style. It's just what I've always liked, but am unsure on how it will look on the elantra.

What's your budget. because your showing us these wheels which shouldn't be more than $800 a set, i don't want to assume you only want to spend $800.

Tons of nice wheels i can suggest to you and even photoshop on an Elantra

Thanks E-Fan... I am working on a tight budget, but I also work at a tire shop, so I get stuff at jobber cost. What I don't like in rims is; fake/real hex bolts along the perimiter, busy designs, plastic bolt/hub caps, dual bolt pattern (will reconsider if the design is perfect for me) and yeah... I would like something between 45 and 50mm offset, I want the edge of the rim right flush with the body and that extra clearance behind would be nice to fit a wider tire.

Enkei has a bunch of different rims. If you are a fan of the high spoke design there are many options. What about these? A little bit less flashy.


The reason the lussos won't look as good as the photo is because of offset on the elantra isn't aggressive enough to actually have a dish (which is what makes the lusso design attractive in the first place)

thanks import_nation.... I was actually looking at those Enkeis as well... And thats some good input on the deep dish or lack thereof for the elantra's offset.

No problem. Post some photos up if you decide to get rims. We need more photos of Elantras with rims.
