The bolt pattern may be the same (Hyundai accent uses 4 x 100 bolt pattern) but the wheel centre bore size and wheel offset are likely to be different. There may also be brake clearance issues. The only effective way to deal with this is to check some of the basic wheel specs and then do a test fit on the car. If the wheel's centre bore size is too small for the Hyundai hub you won't even need to do a test fit as the wheel cannot be used.
1. Center Bore
If the Honda wheel has the same or a larger centre bore size then they will fit on the hub but if larger you will need hub rings to fill the gap between the centre bore and the hub. If you do not fit the hub centric rings you will get vibrations (like an out of balance wheel gives you) as the wheel will not be properly centred on the hub.
If the Honda wheel has a smaller centre bore then it will not fit over the Hyundai hub and you cannot use it.
2. Brake Caliper Clearance
Manufacturers design their stock wheels to clear the size of brake calipers they use but sometimes these clearances are very small.
The Honda wheel may or may not clear the brake calipers when you bolt it on, (which is primarily a factor of both wheel and brake design), and in that event you cannot use it.
The Honda and Hyundai stock wheels will have different offsets.
If the Honda wheel has a much higher offset measurement it may not have sufficient clearance on the inside of the wheel well because the higher offsets places the wheel rim further inside the wheel well.
If the Honda wheel has a much lower offset, this places the wheel rim further to the outside of the vehicle. This is less of an issue unless the tires hit the guards when you get a great deal of suspension movement or the tyres extend out beyond the guards which is illegal.
Its very poor practice to have wheels that do not fit the centre for support. Fitting spacers is not the solution and could result in the wheel not being properly centered on the hub, not properly supported and liable to have the nuts loosen during use. My advice is sell them on ebay and get some that fit. Its your only contact with the road.
I would suggest looking on Discounttire.com at their comparision tool. They have it set up where you can see what the upgrades are for your car. It also has another tool for speedometer error for using a different tire size. Just plugin the original and then type in what size you want and it will show speedo error at several speeds.
The number of revolutions per mile traveled is an important measure. Unless you want to recalibrate your speedo compare the original Revs with the new tire Revs. You can also use the overall circumference of yours to theirs.
Also important is clearance under the wheelwell and space for your brakes. Deal with experts, you need wheels with the right size studholes and spacing for the lugs or they won't fit. You can jockey around on the Discount site and find the original rim width of your car. There is a Catagory for Plus 1 options, Plus 2 options, which is all about rim width changes.
I hope your found my solution helpful in providing a way to get all the information you want.
If you change from the manufactures original tire size, not only will you have steering and handling problems but you will have problems with the performance of the van. The pcm makes thousands of calculations every second to keep the engine running at it's peak performance. These are based on everything remaining original (Tire Size). If you change the tire size it will alter everything the computer does. Including making your speedometer and odometer give you false readings.
Your best bet is to stay with the original tires.
