My elantra came with 15" steel wheels. I found a set of aluminum wheels from a previous generation Hyundai although I'm not sure of the model. They fit perfectly with no rubbing, but what I did notice is that there is less wheel stud exposed for the lug nuts to bite when fastened. I did a rotation count on a lug nut and with the steel wheels, I get 12.25 rotations, but only 9.5 rotations with the aluminum wheels (counted until 80 ft-lbs). I am needing new tires this spring so I'd like to be certain before I pay for mounting and balancing.

Thanks for any insight.

Alloy wheels are thicker than steel ones.

Thanks. So I'm likely OK then. I did some google image searching and found them and they are apparently from 09-12 elantras.
