I went to get my new 17", five spokes wheels, I didn't wanna lose the quiet and comfy ride, so I get some nice size wheels with some meat still in the tires, this are the pics.





What do u guys think. By the way working on my HID's this weekend (I hope)

Wheels look great! Nice choice in size, too. Big enough to look good, small enough for comfort. My crystal ball is
picking up something red. Is that... what? Something to do with brake calipers? :grin:

Looks great!... I personally would have gone maybe an inch bigger in size but your style of rims still look great!

congrats and be careful, dont want to hit any potholes with those babys

just my $.02 but the lip of the wheel make them look like 15's on your car...

definitely better than the OEM hubcaps but I woulda gone for the OEM 17's or 18's IMHO

I do the sensors as well Ula, no problem in that department, and somebody else say the lips make it look smaller, u probably right but i just really like the style and I got a killer deal on it, but thanks for everybody input on this matter and I will keep u guys posted on future changes, just order my HID (last night). DRL/Highbeams, and LED Licence Plate Lights, I will get some pics as soon I got everything install. :liebe011:

I think they look really good. I've been thinking about going with 18s 19s or maybe even 20s, but I can't totally decide. Plus I'm not sure what to do about the sensors can I add them to the new wheels?

I have used "Dupli Color Caliper Paint Kit". Brush version. No primer. It is holding great. No "flakes" or anything like this. Cleaning was easy too, because i did it almost immediately after purchasing my car. And i have used masking tape, but removing calipers is easy on Sonata, so i f you don't want to spend time masking everything, you can just remove them...
