    That reminds me of swapping the wheels from a MY01 Impreza (the first "new shape" one) onto my 1994 Impreza. New wheel style really did suit the classic shape.

    Those are some sexy wheels... I feel inclined to check out part numbers for the front and rear bumpers along with fog light setup to put on my F5 and see how they look... Looks like it's just a 2 door version...

I would have taken that over my Koup, which even surprises me to say that, because i'm in love with my car!
    Anyways, The wheels on the Pro Ceed GT, I'm guessing is 2014 since i'm looking on the Kia website, but i would love to have them. Is this model not yet out in the countries which it is offered? I would love to get my hands on the wheels that come on the car. I've looked around online and can't find them...if anyone knows any info..let me know ASAP!

    Does anyone know the lug pattern/bolt pattern of our stock wheels? I'm looking at some wheels but have no idea what our lug pattern is. I have searched everywhere and can not find it. Help!

    Bolt pattern is 5x114.3. I looked in a few places for the hub bore diameter and haven't found it yet. I might have to take a wheel off and measure it.
    You will need to know that too if the wheels you want to buy don't come hub-centric rings to fit your car.

    It doesn't look like anyone has posted a photo of their Koup with upgraded wheels, so let me share a pic of mine.

    These are 18x8 Kudos Rios with 45p offset. I think the fit is perfect, with the outside edge of the rim finishing about 2mm inside the line of the guard. The wheels fill out the guards way better than the standard 18x7.5 at 55p offset, and I reckon they look sweet. Of course, everyone has their own view on what looks good, and that's the way it should be .

    Thanks "itsjustme". I always planned on going with black wheels on this car, but decided in the end black was too dark, and also because a black wheel kind of gets lost (unless you look closely you can't really see the design detail in a black wheel). In the end these wheels go well with the gunmetal grey finish of the car and also pick up the black/silver finish on the door handle and wing mirror and around the front grill. It took a lot of online investigations to find the right wheel (and a few trial fits of other possiblilties and sizes). Ultimately, it was the guy at the wheel shop who suggested these (they were initally out of my price bracket, but he knocked over 20% off to bring them into consideration - very good of him).

    I finally got some photos of my new wheels and tires. I went with 18 x 8 +45 gunmetal Enkei Raijins with 225/40ZR18 Continental ExtremeContact DW tires. Now I just need a slight drop.
