pls be specific on your question, which brand and which model of 17" rim you looking for, price can be as cheap as RM1K+ up to RM5k+

by the way, ur car fuel consumption is sky high... remember is SOHC 1.5L car.

Actually I think it wont be advisible~

FC is one thing... But I wont care la as long as it looks gd...

But look at our wheel arch... It seems so small~ some bros here are even having problems with 195/55/15R specs liao~ 17... hmmm... And one thing is that its not advisible to up too much from your original rim size~ lets say 14", most up 15" to 16" can liao la~ Even if you manage to wack a 17" in~ imagine your tyre spec... xxx/40/17R... if there is... super slick~ that you;ll have to spend $$$ to change tyres very often liaoz...

was actually thinking of getting 17" of 18"... but for Accent I think the max was 16" Rolling Eyes

Consider ba~ I also like big big rim btw~ Very Happy

yah..what keong1981 say is correct..using 17" is not that suitable for the accent car..

u have to know our car now using 1.5 SOHC..not 1.6 DOHC..it make u to pay petrol more higher and expensive..plus yr performance speed will be reduce..

but i haven't change to any spot rims..will change later..i think i will change to 16" Very Happy coz i like 16" size...

wider width will tend to hit the side fender when cornering. not advise to use it but can put it behind (rear tyre)

I'm using a 17" on mine. Its ORI JAPAN aluminium. Very light weight and fits nicely. So far so good. FC is low. still can maintain a 400km with full tank.

Planning to sell off the rims soon since i am waiting for my 18" advanti rims to arrive. So i'll keep you guys updated if anyone wants to buy.
Also i'll try to post in a pics of my wheels.

In my opinion, if you want to chose rims for your ride, you must put into account these criteria, or else you'll end up with a troublesome mods.

1) The weight of the Rims, (aluminium n carbon high grade is pretty light)
2) The offset of the rims, this will influence the space between the tyre and the side fender.
3) The width of the rims, if too big, the you'll have trouble with cornering.
4) The size of the rims, if too big, it'll just cost you more to highen the springs and absorbers(try to get a fully adjustable absorber). These will depend on the available space. (JPJ will tolarate only when a tin can's width can fit between the tyre and the fender. (or else, well.. you know)
5) Definately it'll cost more to maintain the tyre. So proper tyre selection is vital. I recommend Toyo or Michellin.

Hope this help you in making your decision.
Cheers,

Owh yeah. almost forgot.

The bigger the Rims, the more expensive it'll cost. I got mine for RM4700.
minus the Tyres. and maintanance wise, its a razor in your wallet.

Cheers,

no matter how big your going to fit on your accent, it will influence your FC - DEFINETELY. doesnt mean lighter weight = lesser FC consume.

if you putting other than stock 14" rim, surely the FC will increase... no matter what you put inside. this is the fact as many accent owner face it before.

Note: our car only 1.5 SOHC and 91 HP (as measure on 14" stock rim)...

i beg to differ,
Less weight mean less FC.

(see the Fuel economy-boosting actions and technologies section)

Can you imagine a fat heavy guy vs a slim lightweight guy in a race ? Who do you think eats more to reboost their energy ? the fat guy or the slim guy ? Very Happy

weight and width of the tyre - does matter.

as u upgrade ur rim bigger, the rim can be light but have to consider the tyre. the bigger the tyre = the heavier it goes...

have you ever compare the 14" tyre with 17" tyre? see which one is heavier...

the wider the tyre, d higher d rolling resistance and hence FC wil suffer.n also pickup. but grip wil improve so it's a give n take situation.

my suggestion, for those who just wants the best FC figures *[those who drive sensibly and slow enuf and also where NOTHING ELSE matters! (esp high speed stability)] , shud try 175/65 R14 tyres. tis tyre is used by Vios E and also Myvi *(i guess same category as our car). shud giv less roling resistance compare to our stock 185/60 R14 but at d same time stil can use d original rims! somemore it's stil within d 3% rules for tyres.

i'm a bit surprised when KB gave those who opt for 15" wheels 195/55 R15 tyres. in my opinion it's slightly higher than the 3% rules and this shudn't be the case. the correct size shud be 195/50 R15. other sizes within tis 3% tat i can recall are d common 175/70 R13, our stock 185/60 R14, 185/55 R15 (used by City and Vios G), *205/45 R16 (current stock tyre for Proton Wira Aeroback Special Edition) and those i mentioned above.

Just my RM0.02... Smile
