I want to get new rims for my 2007 hyundia sonata.

What are the biggest and widest low profile tires/rims I can't put on with out rubbing and modifying the car.

Also what type of rims should I get? Chrome, painted etc.

And specific brands of tires/rims people suggest? And specific retailer?

Thanks!

this is my personal opinion..:

Wheel size: Dont go any bigger than 19" on the size of the wheels, anything above 19 looks pretty silly on our cars.

wideness: 9.5" wideness with +38 or above offset is your best bet for the most widest without any fender modifications....

Type of wheels: There are millions and million types of wheels you could get anything from cheap no name brand 200dollar crap wheels to wheels like BBS, DPE, HRE, ADV1, 360 degree wheels that cost arm and a leg.. for our cars, spending around $1500 is the most proper amount to spend towards wheels IMO
(If you want the flush look, spend the dough on wheels, if you dont care about any of them and you can hold through the sunkness look, just get any rimzz)

Color: please dont get chrome, it is the ultimate way to cheap out your car... i personally recommend hyper silver finish, it is almost chrome but has the shine if the stainless steel silverness.. (my wheels)

Tires: again dont cheap out on tires, this regards your safety as well.. , i prefer Hankook Ventus V12 tires, they wear out faster than most of the tires (not by much though), noise level is very mild, performs even awesome in the rain, 2nd choice would be Varadestein senssa track tires, these are quite pricey but it delivers pure performance

pm me if you want more information

as for wheels size 19 was about what I was thinking.either 19 or 20. 21 def too big for the car 18 is not worth it because I already have 17 inch.19 sound like a good middle ground. This 38 offset thing. What's that? Is that some thing they will have to do when they put the tires on?

Also what size tires would you put on the 19x9.5 rims?

And where would you suggest buying from? online stores seem to have better prices but idk...any particular place you prefer?

the most simple way to explain offset to some one who is lost on the subject is... offset determines how "tucked in" or "sticking out" a wheel is. the lower the offset the more a wheel "sticks out", but you must take width into account. a 9" wide rim with a 40 offset will stick out 1 mm further out than 8.5" wide rim with an offset of 35. a good tool to use is http://www.1010tires.com/WheelOffsetCalculator.asp

your "current wheel specs" are most likely 6.5" with 46 offset

and if u do decide to go with something extreme like downhiller you will have to make up for it with a small/stretched tire size and compromise ride quality and ur spedo will be off.

225/40/19 and 245/35/19 are pretty close to spec.

question on wheel size

How bad does it hurt my 4 cylinders fuel mileage if I go to 17" as opposed to my stock 16"?

as downhiller said absolutely inconsequential as long as when you size up from 16's to 17's that ur sidewall aspect goes down from 215/60 to 215/50 then they are within a few tenths of an inch of each other.but keep the 215/60 in 17'' and it will change your speedo ever so slightly maybe .5-2mph difference and thats a big maybe

ur mpg and acceleration could even improve, but it all depends on the weight. weight on rims (rotational mass) is worse than weight inside the car, way worse.
whats your budget and what are you looking at now?

I'm proly looking to spend 2000 bucks total. Do you have any specific suggestions on which rims to get? I don't want them to look like crap in a year, but i don't wanna go broke either.

Also how do i get the wheels/tires onto the car? Can I do it myself?

If you have 2k to spend on wheels please buy something from enkei racing (not performance) or any other light wheel.*
