For wheels, I believe Honda wheels fit. But you have to check the offset is compatible.

Do all trim levels get alloy wheels? Or do the lower levels get hub caps?

in the US lower levels get hubcaps on alloy black wheels that look to be 5 spoke......I wanted the lower level wheels and no sunroof but I wanted the HID lights and air conditioned seat more I guess!!!

I have to think that some other Kia model has wheels that would fit. Bolt patterns are quite often common among similar models.

I was also thinking about getting a temporary spare from some other Kia model to replace the 'fixit kit' that comes with EX Premium in Canada.

The bolt pattern should be the same across the board for the same as well as a few years back from Kia.

See, Kia. Look! Look! Another buyer that didn't want the stupid sunroof but did want the higher gas mileage wheels/tires.

This reminds me of my anti-sunroof rant here: https://www.kianiroforum.com/forum/12...red-today.html

I continue to maintain that automakers misjudge the popularity of sunroofs. Kia is also misjudging the desirability of the 17" low-profile gas wasting wheels/tires on the Touring trim. I would like the EX model and would pay the extra money to get RCTA and BSD but will not buy the sunroof.

I, on the other hand, am looking at the EX plus advanced tech pkg because it does have the sunroof! I have it open on my current Accord much of the time. Benefit to living in NorCal.

17"? Kia only offers 16" and 18" wheels on the Niro. You in a country other than the US?

There are 17 inch rims as an option in Europe and I believe they might be an accessory in the USA. They actually look pretty good. The 16 inch rim should still be the most efficient.
