I want to put some new wheels but i am more concerned with performance and overall fuel economy , i want something that looks at least good. So i was thinking , I have an 04 tiburon that has the stock all square ugly 16" rims,

I am choosing between the OEM 17" rims + 205/40 r17 or

the turbine like 16" OEM rims plus the 205/50 r 16 (see pic below)


I know the stock 16s i got weight a ton (22lbs) how much do the newer 16s wheight i hope a lot less , the 17 weight 20 lbs according to this forum so right there it gets a bit better.

What would give the best overal performance

performance wise, better acceleration 16's.

I have the 03-04 *i'm guessing* 16's for autox. And the 17" weigh more than 20 lbs considering I just shipped four of them.

My enkei's 17's were 5lbs lighter per wheel than my stock 16's
go aftermarket or go home.
