I am thinking of going with Verde Axis 19" wheels. They have a 38mm offset which makes me somewhat hesitant to purchase. Any opinions or should I just stay with an 18" rim. The car is more of a daily driver. I am just trying to distinguish it from the rest of the optima pack.

Love the stance has it been lowered at all or is it just wheel/tire making it look so? Are they flush with body? Thanks man.

Bone stock suspension. The wheels do not sit flush with the fender lip. I have the Kia mud guards and the tires line up just, and I mean just, to the inside of those.

Here is a shot from the rear.......

Finally have my 19s

Just installed a set of 19" Konig Oversteers on my 2013 SX.They look even better on the car than I could have imagined. As soon as the wheels were on the car, the tire tech immediately commented that I needed coil-overs. I am probably not going that route due to the conditions of the roads.

Details:

Stock Suspension
19X8.5 ET 45 Konig Oversteer rims
235/40/19 Michelin Primacy MXM4

No rubbing at this point in time.

Looks fantastic! I have the same color car and will be getting these wheels but was thinking in black. Do you have more pics/other angles?

Wheels: OEM 18's from a 2011 - 2013 SXL
Tires: Falken Pro G4 A/S - 235/45/18
Stock EX suspension

This is exactly the look I was going for and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.

Wheels were in bad condition when I got them (for a great price from this forum) and I had then sand blasted, then powder coated silver, clear coat, then candy black over the top. The result changes color from black to dark gray in direct sunlight. It's a wicked look in person. I've been wanting to post to this thread for a while, but finally I've got a reason to :)

Only have 420 miles on my LX, but I'm looking at changing the wheels/tires...which was the plan from the start. Looking at these American Racing Wheels AR383...18x8"/5x114.3mm, +40mm offset.

Not sure about the tires yet, but leaning towards the BFG gForce series, 225x40ish. Any recommendations? No suspension mods currently, but do plan on upgrades, but prob no lowering.
