Wheels for Your New Elantra

Do you remember the Hyundai Excel? It was Hyundai's first serious push into U.S. market. Well, if you can conjure up an image or recollection of the vehicle, you can appreciate how far Hyundai has come with the new Elantra.

The 2011-2012 Elantra GLS is a nice-looking car at a reasonable price. If you feel like adding a little sportiness to your car, you can easily do so without spending a lot of money.

From 15" to 20" sizing, there are over 100 different wheel options available. With new wheel styles being introduced and some classic wheels on clearance, there are plenty of ways to add flavor on any budget. For example, the Sport Tuning 15" wheels are currently marked down to $49-$55* per wheel.

15x6.5 42mm offset Machined With Black Accent Sport Tuning T5 $55*
Sport Tuning T5 $55*
15x6.5 42mm offset Machined With Black Accent $49*
Sport Tuning T6 $49*
15x6.5 42mm offset Machined With Black Accent Sport Tuning T10 $55*
Sport Tuning T10 $55*

Your Elantra GLS either came with 15" wheels on the 195/65-15 Hankook Optimo H426 or optional 16" wheels running on the 205/55-16 Continental ContiProContact or 205/55-16 Hankook Optimo H426. Regardless if you have the 15" or 16" set-up, or even want larger wheels, be sure to find a Recommended Installer near your home or office for easy installation.

Are you wondering how a two-toned wheel will work with Elantra's overall styling? You can get a pretty good idea by taking a look at this wheel style on the 2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe which debuted at the Chicago Auto Show:

2011-2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS FAQ:

  1. Will the Sport Tuning Wheels accept my original Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensors? Yes, your installer can move your existing TPMS sensor to these wheels.
  2. I also want to get new tires. Can Tire Rack mount, balance and deliver the tires and wheels so they're ready to be installed? Yes, if you decide to purchase tires, we offer free mounting and balancing. I would consider the Yokohama AVID ENVigor as a good choice to improve overall performance and wet grip. The total for this Tire & Wheel Package with the Sport Tuning T6 is $668.***

I would like to find a 15" wheel and Michelin MXV4 - 94V set for my 96 Acura 3.2 Premium TL.

Al, it sounds like you're trying to stay a close as possible to the 15x6.5 65mm offset Original Equipment specifications. If so I'd go with the 15x7 48mm offset Rial Zamora, see:

and the 205/65-15 Michelin Primacy MXV4 (94V V Speed Rated) see:

We don't charge to mount & balance so your total is $1020 plus shipping.

Thanks. Cy.
