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.
