Has anyone taken the wheels off to remove the funky looking center cap cover? Just wondering whats underneath there before I pull a wheel to see. I seriously dont like the star cap and want to replace it with just the small circular ones.

Picture attached from a vendor on ebay. Crap, guess im buying some new wheels
yeah, the stock wheels are not great. My plan is to get 17s for winter and a different set of 18s for summer use. I'll keep the stock 18s around so that I can put them back on when I eventually replace this car. Having nice wheels that don't look like they've seen 10 years worth of use will make it much easier to sell.

New wheels for winter!

[I too have been looking at the Motegi wheels. My GT Sport has the 18 wheels of course. Will a 16 inch wheel fit? This would be for winter tires. I am worried about the fit over the rotors and calipers. I just purchased our 2018 GT Sport. I did not get the tech package....my wife didn't want it. Oh well. We are having fun with the car! My wife really loves it!!!

Our car came with the Hankook VentuSmobile2 tires. I have read some reviews. I does not sound like a good tire. Early wear and even some rubber pieces coming off of the tire. Does anyone have an opinion for these tires. I may have to change the tires out when I take the winter tires off. What after wheels are recommended?

I think its good to state what sort of wear is being experienced because sometimes it can point back to drive system components being the cause.
