New wheels for my car! Hopefully we can start a compilation of what fits/doesn't fit for our cars!

Enkei Fujin (discontinued; now known as Enkei GT7)
17x7.5 +50 5x114.3

67.1mm (Hyundai OEM bore size) to 72.6mm (Enkei bore size) aluminum hubcentric rings used.
Weighs 17.5 lbs per wheel. Better MPG & accelerating response due to decrease in unsprung weight.

Wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport AS3+ 225/50R17.
Notes: Wheel width and offset, I wouldn’t recommend going any larger than an 8” width on a +50 offset. It will definitely rub the stock strut/spring perch. Lower offset needed to accommodate larger wheel widths.

Well played sir! 👍🏼
Hows the ride quality on the 50’s vs 55?
Would you give us a photo from the front to see the increased width of the 255?
Enks and pilots are a great choice.

The 50 vs 55 is negligible. The wheels/tire combo I bought happened to be second hand, but it's so close to the correct tire ratio that it didn't bother me if the speedometer is slightly off. If anything, going from a 6.5" width to 7.5" width made the most difference. The wider stance and tire combo makes the back feel more planted and less squirrely.

In addition, the weight of the wheel alone does change the ride quality. Everything feels more planted, and taking corners feels more confident (not that we have enough power to makes the wheels slip anyways).

Good to know!
Your last paragraph is exactly why I have a 60lb bag of sand in the trunk.🤣
I feel like its the narrowness of the OEM wheel combo, makes it feel unsteady in the rear. Wider tires/wheels and better grip fixes that tremendously!

It's weight my man, and you increased it by over 4% with the wider tire setup. Diameter is an exact match to the stock 205/55/17, so the speedo should be good. The extra weight helps to keep the back on the ground and yes more contact patch helps as well. I noticed an immediate difference in ride quality when I put some weight in the trunk. Your mileage should take a hit as well. I'm guessing about 1/2 a mile to the gallon, but well worth the sacrifice. That setup looks great on the red!

When I was swapping out the stock wheel/tire, it felt drastically heavier than the Enkei wheel/tire setup. Stock 17" wheel was extremely face heavy. But I'll have to weigh it one of these days when I get the chance.

Tire weight went up 3-4 pounds per tire and I would venture to say the rims saved you most of that back, so you might be on to something. The overall weight is about the same per axel. 205 is just too skinny and the reason the venue tracks for crap on the highway along with its light weight. The 225 is the perfect replacement, even on the stock 6.5 rims. Can’t wait to switch them out next year. Until then it’s the bag of sand.
