Question Does 15inch for Hyundai Accent MC look terrible or Looks nice???? Picture please

Hi, my freind told me that the 16inch on my accent is too big and that is not the best looking.

He said that 15inch with some 205/50R15 with look nicer and more stylish with a set of coilover than if Just got the coilover on my current wheels!

I just want to see if 15inch on the accent looks nice!

thanks

16" comes factory on the SE model and looks great in my opinion, just the right size..

15" look good with a set of 7" wide wheels, and good sport tires......but you have to have to autocross look on the car, and you have to be careful of the style and offset of the wheels

Just my 2 cents

15 inch looks good, but after switching back and forth between 15" and 16"....IMO 16" looks better. I think 17" and 18" are too big but do look really good on some Accents.

205/50R15 is a slightly smaller diameter than 205/45R16, youll be lower, but have more wheel gap.

here are some pics with my 15's.




vs 16's

I think of 16" as the sweet spot myself, and am a bit surprised that somebody would complain. (I went with 17" on my car, but I knew they wouldn't be everybody's cup of tea).

The way I see it, how aggressive can 16" wheels really be, if they are an OEM option from a company like Hyundai, on their budget car offering no less?

16" in the sweet spot like others have said. You can make 15" work nice but you need wide wheels, the right offset and lowering springs. 15" at stock height won't look good.

I hate signatures with pictures.

Heh, I'm going with 14" at stock height. As long as you like it, man. Do whatever you want.

Here is mine with 15" x 7" wide Voxx wheels with 195/60R15 tires. I love my wheels, but honestly, 16" looks better. Go with what makes you like the looks, not what someone else says. I chose 15" because I was on a budget and tires are cheaper.
