I have always loved just 5 spoke wheels. A lot of customs are just too busy. Like the designer didn't know when to stop. Sometimes less is actually more. Those look really sharp.

How are they working out?

Just traded my 2010 for a 2016 and am looking for wheels now. I like how 21's & 22's fill the well but going with less then a 35 series tire scares the crap out of me. Had a blow out on the stock 45 series tires a few hours after I bought the car. I'm slightly nervous about 35 series on 20's to be honest, but the side profile of the car is so solid and chunky anything less then 20's doesn't look right at all to me.

Sorry for the late reply. No rubbing issues. you just have to make sure you have the correct off sets
Hi DM2015GENE, curious if you did anything to the suspension or if you're still running stock? I really like the wheel spacing on yours. I prefer the 'barely' lowered look, not looking for it to look like it's low-riding. Just got my '16 Ibiza Blue and considering some X-Spoke wheels in a silver brushed or polished look. Yours looks very sharp indeed and pops; do any paintwork on her or just a deep buff?

Im running stock suspension. I did that because I didnt want lower ground clearance or ride. I hade the car color sanded and buffed. It looks wet.

I agree. I looked at a lot of pictures with 20s and 22s. In my opinion 20s looks a little small if the car was not lowered and I wanted to keep the suspension stock. and the 22s looked a little big with the tires very thin. 21s seem to be the best compromise for me.

I'm pleasantly surprised it's stock, as I've been pretty much set on 20's (I felt 19's were too small) and was planning on the Ark GT-F Lowering Springs to reduce the fender gap without giving it that too-lowered look. But I must say I'm lovin' the way your 21's fill it out perfectly.

And that paint looks dripping wet! :love: Whoever did it does great work. Next Friday mine gets her paint correction and if the result comes anywhere near what yours looks like I'll be thrilled. Did they apply a sealant on yours afterward?

My next concern is sidewall thickness so as not to let the smooth ride go to hell and find the least noisy tires possible. You may have convinced me to jump up to 21's and, like you, go with the thicker sidewalls considering the minimal speedo deviation. Looks like your rolling on Lexani rubber(?), and how is the smoothness of the ride in comparison to your 19's?
