Being somewhat of a wheel fetish, I found a set of cool (IMO) 16" rims on Ebay that I think will be perfect for my 2018 EX PHEV.
They are from a 2011-2013 Kia Optima Hybrid and I like the fact that they are aerodynamic. I haven't mounted them yet because I have winter tires on the OE rims and I'll mount the OE Michelin summer tires on the Optima rims when summer comes here in Minnesota (probably in July).

Anyone replace their tpms sensors via different wheels yet? I put the winter wheels on last night, and was hoping that the niro would auto detect the new 433 MHz sensors. Drove the car about 15 miles with new wheels, and auto detect did not happen. Display is still telling me to...
Sorry if this has been covered already. Couldn't find an absolute answer though.
Can anyone confirm that 15" wheels will clear the front brake calibers?
We have so bad roads up here Finland that I would rather use 195/65R15 instead of original 16".
I went to the dealer but he just...
I recently installed new 16" rims on my new EX, replacing the stock 16" rims that come on the EX (black 5 spoke covered by plastic hub). I am thinking of using one for a full size spare tire, but would have three other rims available if anyone is interested in doing the same.
