Wheel opinion please

.

Having gone from the original stock wheels to the BBS JDM wheels, I am thinking about fitting 17” 2014 Hyundai Elantra Limited wheels onto the SVX.

I really like their design and have actually fit one from my Elantra onto the polo to check for tolerances. No issues.

They are 17” x 114.3, +52mm offset and 7” wide. Would I be able to use these on the polo without too much negative effect?

The closest size tire would be a 225/45ZR17. Specs are very close to stock and they should fit on the 7” wheel.










Opinions? I like the look of this wheel. Slightly angled spokes, but not so much that they look odd on the other side of the car.

Re: Wheel opinion please

Yeah looks better than I expected. I don't think I could live with the lack of symmetry from side to side though. I'm sure it's hard to notice, but I would know.

Re: Wheel opinion please

IMO, I dont think they look good. BUT, to each their own.

Re: Wheel opinion please

I like the Hyundai wheels; to me they are a modernized version of the stock wheels. They might even look better than the JDM BBS. Not enough so, though, in my opinion, to swap them out. If you do, though, they will look nice.
