Sonata 16'' Rims for 2013 Elantra Question

Hey all,

So I was curious what you thought would be the best option here. I really like the 16 '' OEM Sonata Wheels from 2011. (Below)

2011 Hyundai Sonata Rims, 2011 Hyundai Sonata Wheels at OriginalWheels.com

Just going for the 16''s so I could use the tires that already came with the Elantra.

But I was wondering if it would look better and be a lot cheaper if I went for rims like

MSW Type 22 Silver Painted

And just looked for the Sonata Rim wheel caps and then put them on the MSW 22's. Is it hard to fit the wheel caps onto off brand Rims? Is there a good website to find OEM Rims that I dont know about? Thanks!

im personally not a big fan of the stock rims from hyundai. aside from the genesis, but that might be a bias considering I owned one... haha

I would still vote for the second or any other rim that isnt stock. for one, stock is usually expensive unless you go OEM, but still expensive considering the relative cost... and why not give your car some character from your own creativity rather than conforming to someones predesigned notions?

but that being said. If you actually like the stock rims and how they look. then that is enough reason to buy them

The msw will look bigger than they actually are due to the design. Not sure about the caps, chances are they are different size. The easiest thing would probably be to paint the caps a solid color then put a Hyundai logo sticker on top. I suppose you could clearcoat them after that.

Check eBay on "sonata wheels." There were lots to choose...from one to a set of four. The prices ranges were reasonable to high...depending upon who's selling them and how much they think of them.

Shop around. The more time you think this out the more pleased you'll be with your decision.
