Currently driving 2011 Elantra Limited with stock 17". Would it be possible to use the following winter tires from a VW Jetta TDI 15" 195/65-15 with steel RIM.
I know the tire fits, but for the RIM not sure. With some research, here is the specs:
2011 Hyundai Elantra
(633x195mm). Bolt pattern: 5x100. Offset: 32 to 42 mm. Tires up to 650x225mm. Rims up to 20x8.0".
2003 Jetta TDI
(633x195mm). Bolt pattern: 5x114.3 (5x4.5). Offset: 40 to 50 mm. Tires up to 653x215mm. Rims up to 19x7.5".
Any expert know if it is possible? Seems like the RIM will not fit cause of the bolt pattern.
i'm looking at buying a set of used winter tires
they are bridgestone blizzak revo1 for $440....all 4 on mounted onto rims
i have put a deposit down exchange for 1... guy used them for one winter and his vehicle got in accident so no longer has so no longer needs these tires....the rims have seen better days but thread looks good...i did the canadian dime test and the thread is approx@ the queen's eyes
they are 5x114.3, 205/55/r16 same as my all seasons right now
the only thing, the centre bore is slightly bigger like a mm or 2... when i put the lugs on it centred no problem with the factory lugs..... should i be concerned still? need your guys/gals help... i have read different things
besides the wheels looking crappy...those treads look worn out to me. Not sure what the queens head measurement is, but I would have a hard time paying more than $200 for those.
as for the slight difference in bore....a tire shop should be consulted to see if a spacer is available.
its like the us penny test but canadian form....you wouldnt wanna see the thread on my all seasons right now, half the amount of thread than those winters and only have 36,000km on them
and i honestly do not want to pay 1,400 to 2,000 for a set of winters brand new
