Do you know if I can use sedan wheels on a minivan? I'm wondering if the wheel structure will be different because the car weight is very different.

I have a wheels set that I used on my previous car (Elantra 2017) and I'm wondering if I could use it on the Carnival.
Do you know if I can use those? For instance, these are 16" and my Carnival is equipped with 17"wheels (tires 235/65R17), if I used tires 235/70R16 with winter tires it will keep the same overall size according to this site Wheel Offset Calculator

442


Sonata Wheels:
Size: 16" x 6.5", 5 Lug, 115mm Bolt Pattern, 44mm Offset

You said Sonata and Elantra, so I'm not sure if that's a typo or if I missed a detail, but is there a reason why you want to do this? Seems like a bit of a hassle just to go to smaller wheels than what the OEM provided. Most people want to go larger.

That’s right. I had an Elantra 2017, but my winter tires were on a Sonata’s wheels.

My motivation to do this is just to save some money on wheels, since I have these already. I would just need to replace the tires. And install new TPMS for the winter set.

Ah, winter tires! Gotcha! I was thinking you wanted to replace the OEM wheels for giggles. Sorry, I'm from Texas. No such thing as winter down here 😅
