Looking to pick up a set of wheels for the summer.

Since this is my first new car, I wanna make sure I get the proper offset.

I'm a big fan of poke and stretch so I want to run an offset and width that would allow me to poke slightly with a bit of stretch. I'm looking at 17x8 with a 205/40 but have no idea what offset to get.

Even if I just find out the oem offset, I'll just run spacers...

These are the rims I'm looking at..

The offset for the 2012 Elantra is 53mm.

I believe - not sure, but you may be able to veer off from that size a tiny bit - others may be able to chime in.

Also - here are your specs...

205/40/17's are too small. Over an inch smaller diameter than stock. The 215/45/17 stock tire size is best and offers a lot of tire options.

As far as having the wheels stick out a bit, please don't use spacers. Just go for a wheel offset that's a few mm less than stock, but don't go overboard (no lower than 45). Otherwise, you may get wheel rub with a full load in the car.

Hey-225/40/17 would be an option if you like that particular tire profile size & they'd fit nicely on an 8" wheel.

Hey-great posting. The info is great. Their tires are about $60.00 more than what I can get the same tire for at my local tire store.

I wonder if the 40 series will ride a little harsh on the car. I guess it depends on the tire.

Hey-the 40's will probably ride a bit harsher than the 45's. The 215/45's will fit an 8" wheel so that's what I'd go with. If you want to go wider, you'd have to go with 225/40's.

They'll be about 3/4 inches wider and 3/4 inches bigger in diameter than stock. It's hard to say. You can use the club's tire calculator found here:

http://elantragtclub.tripod.com/elantra/id201.html

For 20" sizes, Tire Rack recommends that size for the Elantra, but the wheel offset will make some difference.

You'll certainly feel every molecule on the road.

30 series tires on an Elantra? I'm not recommending a setup like that. signs-stop.gif

With that little rubber between the wheels and the road, every pothole is a potential bent rim.

Never mind that you'd rattle out every filling in your mouth. Even with a normal suspension setup, those are going to ride VERY harsh.
