Picked up this 2015 Sonata Hybrid Limited about a week and a half ago. It replaced a totaled 2005 VW Golf TDI. My first Hyundai and my first Hybrid as well. I'd like to do some exterior appearance mods and possibly lower it with new wheels as well. So long as my MPG isn't affected too much.

New wheels will lower your fuel economy, my guess would be around 10% but it depends on the wheels. Also, if you are replacing the tires, particularly with a non-LRR tire, that could cost another 10% or so in fuel economy. The wheels look they way they do as they are specifically designed to reduce the drag around the tire and wheel well.
