Nice looking wheels! I smell some SX's for me!:D:cool:
That would be correct. Let me get out of work and clean those things. Ill head to fedex tomorrow and get a final price estimate.

How do those 17x8" wheels fit your SX when the stock wheel size was 17x7" with the stock tires?

If i have the stock Ex 15x5.5" tires, would I be able to get 15x6.5" wheels?
I don't really understand this works when the tire/wheel sizing doesn't have to be identical.

They first sent me these rims in 17x7 but they came dual drilled and I told them i wouldnt put that garbage on my car. Konig only makes these rims single drilled in 8" width. So we looked into it and the 17x8s were showing as a fit in the system for a forte.

There was a concern about rubbing so they ordered them and we were just going to see how it turned out. The stock tires can be stretched onto 8" wide rims.

When they came yesterday we put them on the car and checked it out. No rubbing at all.

Those are some really hot wheels!!!!!! But I'm thinking they gotta be tough to keep clean. Stay on top of the chrome...keep em polished!

They look great!!!!!!

I might get these wheels but in the 15x6.5" size, and have a few questions.
Did you get the TPMS sensors to switch over into the konig unknowns, and if you did, did it cost extra for it to be re-installed?
Also, I saw that the offset for the konig wheel is RWD and I'm not sure what the offset is for the kia forte, but i'm assuming since it worked on your SX it will work on my EX?

I think those are probably going to come dual drilled. I wouldnt put that ugly crap on my car. Why so small?

I'm not the wheel/tire guy, man. It took me forever to find rims I like. The first ones i wanted were fast wheels - vicious but it was too much of a pain dealing with a Canadian based company. I kept searching and came across these. When i found the ones i wanted I called a local tire/wheel place by my work and they said they could get them, and they fit. But then they sent out the dual drilled ones so i had them send me 8' instead of the 7'.

I don't know why there would be an issue with the tire pressure sensors but idk.
