Can replace the low profile tires and rediculously soft alloy rims on the Sport version with rims and tires from the other models?

Asked by May 20, 2012 at 04:04 PM about the 2012 Hyundai Sonata SE

Question type: General

One pot hole and both right side rims are bent so badly they will not hold air.  No tire damage, just $800 to replace rims that are far too soft an alloy to be reliable.

Don't buy this car in the sport package with the low profile tires.

yes u can , but be careful and see that the wheels match the engines power, the bigger the engine the bigger the wheels r to control that power hope this was helpful
