GO TO A GOOD RIM AND TYRE SPECIALIST.
There are set measurements when rims are fitted. As long as these match you can fit any make of rim.
Take your car details they will be able to suggest rims that will fit.
If you don't, things get complicated.
You will need to check the following.
-Number of wheel bolts/nuts. (4 or 5).
-wheel bolt/nut spacing. (Distance between opposite holes).
-Rim offset. (How far the rim sticks out of the wheel arch.
-Rim edge type.
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.
you intend fitting ***65r -15 tyres on the car
so there will be no difference in speedo readings or mileage readings because the critical measurements as the 65 ( side wall height and the rim size 15 remains the same
the other dimension --185, 195 215 are the tread width and require a rim of suitable width to sit the sidewalls correctly so that the tyres will not roll of during cornering
What you need to know is the offset of the rims for each car
the offset is the distance from the rim edge ( measured by a flat edge across the rim) to the face of the rim where it fits against the hub
the off set is measured as positive , negative and neutral
you will have to get a bare rim of each vehicle and measure that off set
if it is not the same , the rim can hit the brake callipers, hit the internal splash guard on full turn or place excessive load on the outer bearings in the hub or foul the mudguard edge on full turns and bumps get all the information first as a mistake can make the vehicle ******* on the road , loose you your insurance and subject you to a traffic infrigement
No ---not unless you put a 15" rims on the car. The tyre sizing reads like this
185 is the width of the rim from bead to bead in millimetres
the 65 is the profile height --- distance of the rim from the road surface
r is for radial
14 is the rim diameter in inches
now you can understand why a 15"tyre will not fit a14" rim
Yes as long as u change the rims also not just the tires these numbers 195/60/15 195 is tire width 60 is tire height and 15 is rim size, most all Hondas will fit up to 215/35/18 with no rubbing issues on factory suspension ..... Every time the rim size changes u have change the height of the tire so it will fit some go as far as " stretching " the tire to allow larger rims or extreme offsets
16 is the rim size and most modern ones will take 215 tyre. Of more concern is the PCD (which dictates how holes line up) would suggest a trip to a breakers and get 4 from any VW Passat (or other) of similar age
Yes. The last number on a tire size is the diameter of the rim, when it changes so too must the tire. The bigger the tire the more they cost.
You also have to pay attention to the width of the rim, side to side. Somes tires need a wider rim than others, so ask when you are buying the rims what width they need tires to be because wider tires cost more too. Hope this helps.
A temporary workaround/remedy is to put innertube inside the tire. Even if the alloy rims could not longer provide a good air tight seal, the inner tube would still hold the air. You may need to specify the tire size and width. Additionally, you may want to ask your tireman to likewise install a buffer of some sort between the innertube and the alloy rim. This is to prevent the any sharp portion of the corroded alloy rim puncturing the inner tube. Some local tiremen use a cutoff/old inner tubre as buffer.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
