Default 2013 Elantra Tires

Hi everyone,
My tire size is 205/55/R16. I'm wondering if 215/60/16 tires would fit on the 2013 Elantra GL?

Yes and no. Yes they will fit but the diameter will be 5% larger meaning that when your speedo shows 60mph your actually going 63mph. Most all tire place recamend that you stay within 3% of the stock diameter. A 215/55 16 is 1.5% larger, and a 215/50 16 is 1.5% smaller. I would stick with one of those or the stock size.

Great, thanks!
Also, will any 16'' rims fit on my car? Or is there something else to look out for?

In a word, NO! Rims must have the correct bolt hole configuration. They must also fall within the correct "offset" parameters. See that itty-bitty hole in the center of the wheel? Any wheel you buy must have a center hole large enough to fit over the center hub of your rotors. Do your research. A little knowledge beforehand sure pays dividends in the end...to say nothing about less headaches.

There's a ton of info in this forum about what you are wanting to do. And the members will help you, as well. My best advice: Research, research, research.

Thanks Rich.
I even called the dealer for more information on the rims so that if I'm buying them aftermarket I can get the right ones. All they knew was to get 5 bolt 16'' ones, and buy from the dealer to avoid mismatch issues.
They couldn't tell me any other details about the offset.
If anyone knows what the other parameters are for the 2013 Elantra rims, please share.
Thanks

Dealer is stupid. Stay away from buying his wheels. Rediculous markup. Go to Discount Tire, look on Tire Rack, or other websites...

Just curious, why would you go with a 60 sidewall? You'd be safe with a 215/50r16. It'd give you a wider tire and about the same sidewall as your 55.

Wheel calculators:
Tire size calculator
Tire Size Calculator - tire & wheel plus sizing
http://www.rimsntires.com/rt_specs.jsp
Online Wheel & Tyre Fitment calculator. Offset, Tyre stretch and Rolling Radius calculator
I can confirm those specs are correct

And OP. try PMC tires, bought my winters on steelies mounted and balanced and shipped for $906.... A local place in Winnipeg will run me between 12-1400 pending where I would have bought from... But also try like tire rack and discount tires like others mentioned
