Congrats! They look amazing.. How much did they cost if you dont mind me asking?
I never thought about getting new rims for the summer or the winter but after reading alot of topics here about rims maybe I should get a pair?
Not really sure what I should do or the benefits of having different pairs for different seasons..
Also this question is off topic a bit but I was wondering about wheel locks.. Did anyone get the wheel locks? the dealer told me that the 18" alloy wheels come with them but after a friend looked at my wheels he said it seems there is no wheel locks..
But they do look very nice!

Did you have to buy a new set of TPM for the new wheels since the sonata have TPM sensor in them or you had them swap?
if the new wheels your buying are TPMS compatable (which more are now) all you have to do is swap them.

Personally I'm not feeling the wheels. We had a white 11 in the shop last week. He had a set with a 7 spoke or maybe a couple more..but they had a lip on them. More of a lux wheel. Looked real nice. I think they were 20's. I wish I still had a picture.

but lets see the whole car...

I'm normally partial to 6 or 7 spoke, but those look great. You have a lot of caliper showing, and
beg for red paint. :)

The newest Hyundai catalogue is out and there are some chrome rims with a lip with a lot of spokes, sounds like it may be the same ones your talking about. Available in 18 or 20" sizes. Was like $2500 for a tire and wheel package. But I'm not sure chrome will be the way to go especially 20". I'm going to lean towards some multi spoke gunmetal or matte gunmetal about $1600 for 18" tire and wheel package installed. All rims are Hyundai spec'ed rims so direct bolt on, don't have to worry about offset and hub size and all. Has a Hyundai badge in the middle too.

More pics! Let's see a close up of the wheel / lip. Also a side profile. Looks good.

I've not seen a pic yet of aftermarket wheels on this car that I like better than the stockers. But to each their own though, customization is what it's all about for most of us, in one form or another.
