    What brand and style are these?

    Another wheel that might work, but you'll be back to higher wheel/tire unsprung weight.

    Ahh ok. Yes it's much clearer now!

    With 195/65R15, you can upgrade to a 215/45R17 size (with the correct bolt pattern) without any spacers for the most part (assuming the alloy wheel hub is correct.

    The 17" rims on the Gen 4 are 7J x 17 (The same wheels are available on the Prime in Japan) if you need a guideline.

    Just wanted to thank you for posting above Rob43. I finally found this thread again. Because I ended up getting the wheels that were posted. Thanks again for steering me in the right direction.

    Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying them. IMO the Prime looks much much better when 17's are mounted on it.

    Keep up the good work,

    Are those the 18" or 17" version of the wheels posted above? What size tire did you go with? Thanks! Looks great.

    215/50 R17. So 17 inch wheels. They are actually 12 ounces lighter each then the stock 15 inch alloy.

    Not the official 215/45R17 size? Comparing to 195/65R15, with the 17's 45 reduces tire OD about the same amount as the 50 increases it, so maybe no big deal. And the ride is a little cushier with 50.

    That looks nice. What was the cost to swap out?

    Koenig wheels and Nokian Entyre 2.0 tires were a total of $1200… But I sold my OEM wheels and tires for $500… So $700.

    The larger tires handle better, quieter, and a longer warranty.

    I chose the Nokians Because they have the highest waterplaning resistance of any tire you can buy.
