I own a 2010 Koup Sx 2.4L. Turns out I have 2 bent rims which I would ideally like to replace just the 2 with the same factory rim. Buying them new is way too expensive and I’m having trouble finding used or refurbished ones. I’m thinking that buying a set of aftermarket rims might be the better route to go. I’m looking for suggestions and help on finding a set of rims that would match my car. I’m not good at this sort of thing and don’t want to buy a set that looks silly lol. My price range is anywhere from $400-600 for a set. The tire spec is P215/45R17 and the car color is burnt orange.

I got the charcoal remanufactured one for my old koup.. They took a silver and painted it charcoal and the paint flaked while installing the tire. And they blamed the installer .It was purchased from Autorimshop The discount tire ones do come with centric rings to fix the offset included with the lug nuts.

I usually use discount tire direct,,, these are pretty nice... With lug nuts and TPMS rebuild kits right at $600
I bought new tires at discount tire and that’s when the informed about the bent wheels lol. I went on their website and saw those but am not a fan of the what looks like half machine faced spokes.

I do like these though. The charcoal or black seem like it would match the best

The ones you like are replicas of the Kia 2010-2013 SX wheels (2010 sedan SX - not 2010 Koup SX).

Those Charcoal are what mine had it on it,. But the remanufactured was painted and not very well at all . That last pic is exactly what came factory on my koup. They do not hold up to potholes. Two of them ended up with cracks on the inside from the bead toward center of rim about 1 inch to 2 inches long. When the second one showed cracks I got rid of the rims.

Hopefully the replicas are better then the remanufactured wheels!

I do like those Drag rims you picked out especially in that style. If you do that your next project will be painting the brake calipers lol
