Hi everyone! I just registered on this forum. I have an 04 2.4L Manual Accord and I'm looking to put some aftermarket wheels on. I found a guy selling his 18" Genesis wheels for $350, is that a decent price?

Secondly, I looked at the bolt patterns and they match, but I just want to ensure they will fit properly. Does anyone have any experience installing Genesis wheels on our 7th gen?

Thanks!

Price is what you are willing to pay. There is a couple of guys here running 19" genesis wheels here....yes, they'll fit.
Ah i see. And if I get the tires for an 18" wheel, like 225/45-18, will i have to modify my fenders or anything else in any way to be able to fit larger wheels + tires? Thanks for your help!

Thats a great price.. I'm actually kind of jealous, been looking for the same for my car and can't find them cheaper than $1000 on CL around here:thumbsdow

As far as your question about them fitting, to my knowledge they should fit just fine without any modification

OP, You never mentioned if these were going on a coupe or sedan. That being said, $350 for a set of Genesis wheels is a hell of a deal and were it me, I'd jump all over it. Also, be advised that the genesis wheels have an offset between +30 an +35. Its fairly aggressive for a sedan but can be pulled off nicely with a decent drop and the right sized tires. OEM rolling diameter for an 18" wheel is either a 215/45 or 235/40. If you have a coupe, the wider tire will fit nicely with a fender roll and not poke. If you have a sedan, fender roll, slight pull and some negative camber for either size tire. More pull and camber for the wider tire though.

And? The 18's still have the offset I mention. The diameter means nothing in this case.

Well...I was one of them but sold them a few months back lol They are just so dang heavy and after having to replace both front axles which were shot, I decided to ditch them and go back to my 18" 10-spokes

But OP, as Z has stated - Hyundai OEM wheels run a much lower offset than our Honda wheels - so you may run into rubbing issues if you aren't at least rolled in the rear. You shouldn't need pulled. I sported the 19" Track edition wheels. Yes, $350 is a great deal - but also consider the cost of tires in a 19" size...quite pricey. I highly suggest Discount Tire Direct - I use them every time I am buying a set of all 4 new tires and they will price match / beat any competitor + FREE S/H :D

Are you saying that the lower offset of the Genesis track wheels damaged the axles?

I think he was implying that the heavy wheels damaged the axles. Not sure I agree with that, it was probably more coincidence than anything.
