Guys, the Accent SE here in the US have 16x7.5 rims stock.Offset is 38. Tires are 16x205x45.

jamesc, i agree with you. OZ and Enkei makes good wheels.
Ive been re storing OZ wheels few years back. One thing sucks about rally rims are the weight..these are rock solid rims that weighs more than 3 regular wheels together. For $600USD/set in Tirerack.com, you might think about it... I just love the OZ superleggeras

G'day.

Looking at those pictures, I reckon you could fit 17" wheels on there without too much trouble.. Would it be that much of a liability to go from 16" to 17"? What would be the disadvantages of having 17"'s be?

2 effects:

1. higher fuel consumption due to more rubber intact on the road surface so more tractions.

2. you need higher braking capabilities to stop the car due to higher inertion forces to stop the car.

my 2 cents

another problem is your tyre will hit the fender if going over the hump with load of passengers. one of the forummer told me before.

if you decided to change to 17" rim, then be prepare and dont regret.

mine 15" rim also hit fender if ramai orang at the back, guess because they put that one layer of steel before putting my rims. but it look nicer, the tyre terkeluar sedikit, hehehehe.

well, very simple because your knuckles does not have direct force grab with your rims.

the spacer quality and built also a question and that defines whether it will last... what if it doesn't? seems to me is an additional risk for safety.

there are many ways to have better grip to the ground:

1. use a smaller offset rim
2. use chamber kit
3. toe in or chamber out settings
4. use a bigger JJ size of rim (using wider tyre)

and many more...

What kind of suspension is better if we go for rim size upgrade?

For comfort go for koni with eibach spring. it is very expensive, koni 1 pc absorber cost rm 500, and eibach spring is rm1k for complete set, some might get cheaper just rough price. so i would recommend that upgrade koni absorber. but there are also other brand, not sure gab got or not. but koni and eibach is the best combination.
