Since you're showing a 3.3 Limited, I'll assume the originals were the lousy Bridgestone 235/60-18 tires.

The first group is for your standard size (235/60-18).
The second group is for a near perfect fit alternate size (255/55-18)
Can I use 255/55-18 group tires with my existing 235/60-18 original rim?

If we use 235/70-16 tires & new rims, the price will be almost same as 235/60-18 tires,
but we lose TPMS installed in the original rims. don't we? Is TPMS portable?

Yes, they'll fit just fine. Again, throwing that size into the mix will open up additional options that don't exist for the standard size.

If done carefully by a shop that knows what they're doing, yes. That also avoids the problem of buying a new set of 4. That solution isn't cheap, and you'd need to have a Hyundai dealer reprogram - the TPMS can't keep track of four additional sending units.

Different countries, different markets and different rules. They've got 'em down here below the parallel, that's for sure.

I picked up a nice set of 16" rims - just over 100$ a piece at CTC and mounted winterforce tires - had good luck with them so far and saving the 18" rim/tire for summer

Hi

Thanks for the pic - looks good! I tried my local CTC and it took all my strength not to scream at the "16 year old" who was unable to help me in any way!

Do you know please:

<blockquote>a. Are those hubcentric or stud centric rims?
b. What size Winterforce you put on?</blockquote>

Thanks and regards

CP

I recently picked up 4 fairly good treaded 235/70/16 Cooper Discoverer M+S & Steel Wheels off a Santa Fe for 500$ on Kijiji.

I also picked up a set of barely used Pirelly Scorpion Zero in 255/55/18 for 400$ total from Kijij for the end of summer 2011 when My duelers will be well worn.


To answer CP2010Santafe, I think most steel rims are stud centric.

Thanks, but the rims from CTC are Alloy, and hence my interest!

Sorry yes - Canadian Tire Corp.

I believe these are the rims in the picture:

There are also silver ones - I am looking at 17 inch, but want to make sure they are hub centric not lug centric.

Thanks for the good tips, I bought a 2010 Limited with Navi a month ago, and got to test the stock wheel/tire combo in heavy, wet and slippery snow in a weird October storm (yay Saskatchewan!). Needless to say I am NOT impressed, and will be looking at 16 inch wheel/tire combos ASAP.

I am surpriseed that 16 inch wheels will clear the calipers, my Jeep Grand Cherokee I could only go to 17's since the brake calipers would hit on a 16.

I also endorse the Miata wheel size converter, I have used it for about 6 years on about 8 vehicles, lol.
