  1. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Hey guys, I’m hoping to get some answer from fellow forum members with this suspension set up. I’m looking to go lighter wheels for MPG, current 20” is killing 5mpg. I’m thinking about Enkei wheels 18x9 +35. Can anyone with this set up post up your tire size that work with this suspension...

  3. Paint Colors
    Thought this might be a cool thread. Since many members are trying to make their cars stand out by going with different themes or color combos, I thought there should be a thread for that, so members can see what colors other K5 owners are going with and using together. I used to have a...
  4. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Yes, I have looked at the Wheels and Tires Combo that work section, but haven't found what I'm looking for. I posted on someone else's thread and decided not to hijack it w/further questions. Here is what I'm attempting to do. Have the tires stay in the wheel-well, don't want rubbing, don't...

    I'm potentially taking on deadening my SX in a few weeks. After I'll I've read, the sparing use of CLD tiles + CCF (decoupler) + Mass Loaded Vinyl (MLV) is clearly the winner. The problem with using MLV is the cost due to shipping weight. I found a place by my house in Minnesota that sells...

  9. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Hi everyone, So I found out today my original rims I ordered are on back order for 90 days and I can't wait that long. So I think I will be going RW6, but can't decide on whether to go: black with chrome lip Or the so-called "black/black" (black wheels with silver face) Here is a link...
  10. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    I'm thinking about changing my wheels again and was wondering if anyone could chime in on the following setup. Looking to do 245/40/19 tires on 19x8.5 ET 45 wheels. I've read the "Known to work" thread and some people have setups that are close but none with those exact numbers. I'd probably...
  11. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    I notice that a lot of rims made these days seem almost designed to be destroyed the first time you rub against a curb slightly. I'm wondering why people buy rims that are designed this way. My 16" LX stock alloy wheels are extremely forgiving in this regard, and I've yet to put even the tiniest...
  12. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    There has been a ton of threads lately about what wheels will fit, what offset works etc. I know its hard to find in the wheel/tire thread as a lot of them are just pictures. I am going to start this thread so people can post What wheel size, tire size and offset they are running and...
  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I like it. Red and gold kinda works I think. Might have to plasti-dip the grill surround to make it look a little better if I go with this.
  14. Engine and Technical Discussion
    I'm debating on what the best combo will be for my '13 SX. I was originally just wanting to go with an Injen intake and the Nameless charge pipe. Now I'm considering just going all out Nameless in their bundle package: Who is running this setup? What do you think about it? What...
  15. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    As the title states, I have a question about the wheel/tire combo that I am looking into. I'd like to run a 20x8.5 40mm offset w/ 235/35/20 combo or a 20x9 40mm offset w/ 235/35/20 combo. I do not plan on lowering the car. With that being said, do I need to roll the fenders and will the tires...
  16. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I've search here and google and was wondering if anyone has a spicy red optima and done a black/carbon fiber hood, trunk, and wheels? Or if any photoshop guys wanna whip it up that would be awesome! or any opinions of whether you think it would pull it off.
  17. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    I want to get the pizza cutter rims on and replace my stock 17s on my hybrid. Anyone got some for sale? With or without rubber. thanks. [email protected]
  18. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Just installed some Neotech shocks/struts, lowering springs, and adjustable rear upper control arms. It wasn't too bad of a job but I do need to mention the lower bolt holes on the front struts were not big enough. Perhaps Kia upsized the strut bolts on the 2012's? Dunno, but I can say that...
