Hey tao.strider,Hey Nova,
Thanks for the reply. The ex & lx models are a bi different than sx models. The huge front disc brakes made 17" wheels the min.
YesSo for a 2016 Forte5 SX, 17" wheels will fit?
You are confused. 17” WHEELS will not shorten gears and 19” WHEELS will not lengthen gearing. TIRES do that, not wheels. You shorten or lengthen gearing by purchasing smaller diameter or taller diameter tires. You can buy taller 18” tires to lengthen gearing. And you could buy the same height 17” tires as the stock 18” tires and have the same gearing.I am on the fence between lighter 17s but a little shorter gears and heavier 19s which will lengthen the gearing up slightly,
