The stock rims are 16X5. The bolt pattern is 4X100 I believe.I just recently bought my iQ and I want to change the stock rims with aftermarket. Im short on cash so I don't want to purchase new tires for the new rim. Are there any rims out there where I can transfer the stock tire onto the new rim. Thanks in advance.
Not sure really, except I delay shooting pix of the iQ until I get the wheels mounted.Like Micky, my back ordered rims from the dealership have been back ordered for the 4th time now to 14 April (as of yesterday). Maybe there is a cargo container ship with parts and accessories for the IQ due in?
Thanks so much...I will investigate!!! I did the sway bar this year...maybe the new wheels next year. It is definitely on my list. I generally like to keep things very OEM, but I'm very curious to see how nimble the iQ would be with 11-15 lb. wheels!! Thanks again!!You can look at the other rims he has on the site
I think you are right, and you bring up some other good points as well that I had not considered. It'll be an interesting investigation. One thing I am unclear on is the rough cost of dealing with the tire pressure sensors....I have never had to do that before because the car in question either a) didn't have them or b) used a different system (ABS sensors). Once I find the right wheels I suppose I'll get motivated to dig more into the other details since I'm not sure right how many other variables will be involved regarding wheel/tire size/width.Pretty much, I think light wheels will help you accelerate faster and stop faster.
