    Dilemma: Trying to go from 16" to 15" wheels for winter set of tires.

    Hi folks

    I have a dream. A dream where one would be able to go online somewhere,
    enter all relevant info pertaining to rim size that one wants (bolt
    pattern/size, offset, bore size, etc) and a search engine would find
    all cars with matching rims.

    I've got a set of 215/70/R15 winter tires in my garage that are just
    itching to go on a set of steel rims that I can put on my Tuc. The
    problem is that no one (not even Hyundai Canada) can give me the right
    size I need. I called Hyundai Canada to find out the bore size and they
    didn't even know. Someone at one point had told me 67.1mm but I want to
    make sure before I continue my search. Someone also told me they had
    put rims from a 1999 Chevy Venture on their Tuc and it fit, however the
    Chevy has a 5x115mm size when the Tuc is 5x114.3mm.

    If anyone out here has done the conversion, please let us know what
    vehicles' rims fit.

    Ummmm, no thanks. I think I'll just get a set of R16 tires. But good luck!

    In another newsgroup, you wrote:

    "Canadian Tire asked me if I wanted 15 or 16" rims, so I bought one to
    see if it fits properly...if it's in their system, it shoulf fit,
    right? If not, I guess I can go after them if my hubs and pegs screw

    What didn't work with that rim?

    Is .7mm that big of a difference? I'd just use the chevy ones.

    The bore size was too big (2 3/4" or 69mm) and that's usually the size
    for most multi fit rims

    Alex asked about converting to 15" rims from 16" rims and to this say:
    I would be careful about switching A full tire size on your car as you
    may have problems with speed sensors and other electronics. I.E.
    speedometer issues, ABS issues and all wheel drive issues.
    A Kia/Hyundai tech should be consulted to address any possible
    problems in these areas in my opinion.

    Good Luck!
