Anyone installed aftermarket 18x7.5 wheels?

Has anyone actually purchased and installed aftermarket 18x7.5 inch wheels on a GT Sport? I want something with an offset within 7mm of the stock wheels for autocrossing in H Street class.


Knowing the detailed dimensions of the wheel doesn't allow me to order them from TireRack, Discount Tire, or any other common vendor, as they don't allow search by exhaustive dimensions. TireRack doesn't permit searching by dimension at all, only by the make and model of car, and they show nothing for the Elantra GT Sport - I verified this through live chat. Same for the others I found.


Used wheels would be great, but neither EBay nor HubcapHaven currently have any. I'm thinking that since there are no aftermarket wheels of this size sold through most vendors, we are not seeing used wheels for sale by people who've sprung for new ones.


I want to buy from a vendor who will guarantee their wheels will fit my car. Any help you can provide will be appreciated.

Just search using the Elantra Sedan Sport. It's the same wheel size. I know for a fact they are the same size because I bought a set of sedan wheels and put them on my GT.

Thanks, BobLoblaw, that's EXACTLY what I was hoping for - it's actionable. I just ordered a wheel and tire package from TireRack with the Enkei RPF1 wheels, size 18x7.5, offset 48 mm. The car is listed as a 2018 Elantra Sedan Sport, and without your confirmation I would have hesitated to bet they fit the GTS. I'm not sure what the return policy is, especially with pressure sensors installed and tires mounted and balanced, and I don't want to find out.

UPDATE: It works!

Just installed four Enkei RPF1 18x7.5 wheels and 225/40R18 AD08R tires on my 2018 GT Sport - they were ordered from TireRack for the Elantra Sedan Sport per BoLoblaw recommendation. With included 73-67mm Ring they fit perfectly. Thanks for the invaluable help.

Also in for seeing pictures of how they fit.

I was thinking about going with a similar size. Then maybe later lowering springs.

Hopefully rolling fenders won't be required.

As requested, pictures!

This wheel is popular with autocrossers because it is lightweight and reasonably affordable.

Good choice.
I spent some time in the Honda community where there was a lot of Auto-X'ers.
Probably the biggest upside to these wheels is the ease of finding them.
