hi all

i fitted the alloys coming from:
normal tyres came with car: 175/70/r13 to 205/50-15 with new alloys,

the issue is
with the old wheels the car was stocked with same weight after we fitted the wheels i noticed over bumps, turns and anything that makes the car up and down it seems that the alloys tyres are catching the suspension cone on rears sides.


i checked clearance with my fingers and the tyres are very close to the suspension plate / screw maybe an inch.


what can i do to stop this?

pics of new tyres:

Can you show a pic of where it is touching? Also, recommended tires are the 13's. a 14 may fit safely.

Not sure exactly where its rubbing, but maybe a spacer would help?

hi atrain

i'll try and get a pic, i also notices rear drop links (stabliser) is broken, its pretty rusty so i hope is not a pain to get off?

the car originally came with 13 tyres i mentioned above and everything was fine, but they were in bad state.

it is rubbing on the side of suspension / dampner pole beneath the cone as well as the the break line i think. it hits the cone when i go over bumps as well.

so i baught 5mm spacers for all around the car as i,m hoping thats enough space for the car

hi all

the new alloys spec that are causing the issues are:


5 ALLOYS AND TYRES from a HYUNDAI COUPE 2000/2001 MODEL. these are 4 stud wheels.
Rim Width: 6J
Brand: -- Rim Diameter: 15 inches
Rim Structure: One Piece Offset: --
Manufacturer Part Number: --
Number of Studs: 4
all 5 have these tyres fitted: 2055015


looking at the 15" alloys they are wider then the 13" steel tyres i got with the accent.

but looking at this:

old steel tyres: my accent is 98 LSI

Make : Hyundai Model : Accent >00 Year : 94 to 00 PCD : 4x114 Offset : 35 to 45 Bore : 67.1 Fittings : N 12x1.5

Recommended fitments, 14" 1856014 15" 1955015 16" 2054016 17" 2054017


new alloys

Make : Hyundai Model : Coupe 4 Stud Year : 95 to 01 PCD : 4x114 Offset : 35 to 45 Bore : 67.1 Fittings : N 12x1.5

Recommended fitments, 15" 2055015 16" 2054516 17" 2054017 18" 2153518

so technically the 15" alloys should fit with these tyre sizes 1955015 as the ones on the 15" alloys have 2055015

Regarding the rear stabilizer: Did the links or the bar itself break? For me, my front bar snapped so I just removed it. If its the links, they are very inexpensive and usually universal.

Put the proper tires back on the vehicle and remove those alloys which obviously don't fit, problem solved. Not only are you damaging your vehicle by using improper tires you are also a potential hazard to other road users since your vehicle may handle improperly in an emergency.

hey all

well i didnt think they were safe to be used on the road, and if i,m not sure about anything i wont do it specially a car where i can hurt my self and others, plus i havent got that time or the money to fix them.

so i decided to put the old ones back and sell these.

thanks
