    Talking An Uncommon Stance: 2005 Hyundai Elantra

    So I know its definitely not a common car to stance, but its what i have so i thought why the fuck not. I just got into cars after i met some friends in college and liked the stance/slammed/lowered scene, and wanted to try and do something that hasnt been done yet. (plus I don't have the funds to buy another car.) I currently have a set of Raceland Adjustable Coilovers, and I am in the market for some wheels, so if you want to get rid of some wheels in the Orlando area, let me know....although I dont have a large budget, as I am a college student, but anyways here are some pictures.

    I have since blacked out the green H emblem, and it looks a lot better. it doesnt look as low as it does in person, but it currently sits about 4" off the ground. once i get the wheels i want i will lose approx 1.7" ride height, dropping me down to about 2.3" off the ground at the sideskirt, and approx 1.3" with my home depot special lip, (they dont carry lips for my car anymore and they are very hard to find, plus i would be like eating shit and the lip would get destroyed. the home depot lip can take some abuse) and then i can adjust the coils a bit more to my liking.

    yup. thanks. thats one of the things i like the most about the majority of the stance scene is everyone likes cars for cars, and doesn't **** on brands/makes (most of the time.)

    Nice nice nice nice! (its me avantegt from the forums)
    They don't make lips for this car, but many lips fit.

    Here is my newest lip I got a few weeks ago after I crashed.

    Ill try to get pics of my old lip up too.

    hahaha you found it!! haha nice! i definitely dig that lip. yeah i was being sarcastic about the custom lip lol. i absolutely love how it looks (dead serious), i did some renderings/drawings before i got it and it looks exactly like i thought it would, but its a home depot special held on by zip ties, so not a lot of custom fab was really done. but it looks awesome.

    Yeah, I like how yours looks OEM+

    Very clean! Now you need those rims hahahaha.

    If you were down here in cali I would let you roll on my GT wheels until you can get different ones.

    thanks, yeah i need wheels big time. i like the OEM+ that and if i got a body/lip kit, i couldn't get as low as i want. so this lip can let me get the low lows, and take some abuse too, unlike a fiberglass one, which would probably get ripped off or have some maaaaaaad drift stitching.

    haha well, the spoiler is a Kaminari Racing Wing, which usually goes for about $230 and i got it for $35 off a dude on craigslist. I thought the rear of my car needed something, and it looks good from like a 3/4 shot of the front of the car, but other than that it looks kinda silly. but i don't have the cash to fix it at the moment, so for now, it stays. once i get the cash to shave the rear bumper completely, then it will come off. thanks for the wheels suggestions btw.

    I like the Work Emotion 11R but they don't come as a 15"x8".... =( i really want Work Meisters with the white spokes and chrome lip, but i dont have like 3 grand to drop on wheels. thats why i suggested the cheaper XXR and diamond racing wheels. does anyone know the real version of the XXR 532?

    15's will look terrible IMO.

    I almost went with 16's on my car but ended up with 17's and it looks perfect. Elantra's are pretty much the same chassis/size so I'd stick with 17's. You can get real wheels for $1k if you take the time to look around. I got my Walds for less than that and they are dual drilled (4/5x114.)

    Check out VR Wheels for legit wheels at a good price.

    I don't mean to dash your hopes and dreams, but that's pretty much impossible. My front bumper is 3+ish inches off the ground and this is what it looks like underneath:



    My brother has an Elantra and I'm pretty certain its the same underneath. You'd literally be sitting on the ground.

    haha no hopes and dreams were dashed, they will just have to revised to achieve correct lowness. my front lip is like 3-4" off the ground currently, and my frame sits above that, the only thing that might be on the ground is my tow hooks, and i can scrape those off, no biggie, i can weld/drill in a place for an aftermarket tow hook somewhere if i need to.

    I have to admit, 17's do look the best on our cars. Our lower rad support and oil pan and tranny are pretty much at the same level as each other, and the tow hooks are just about an inch lower than the lower rad support. If you can manage getting that low without your LCA's smacking the ground, you would need a really beefy skid plate or its RIP beta2.

    Forgot to mention, if you want to stay OEM looking and look as low as you really are, invest in the KDM side skirts.

    From what I have heard, they sit pretty flush with our ugly exposed frame rails, if not 1mm or so lower.


    I still think if anyone can pull this off, its you.

    So... update/some more questions for the forum....i havent found any wheels, but ive made progress on the money front. ive got $190 saved up so far, and i have a desktop PC that i can probably sell for about $200-$300 on craigslist, so ill have around $4-$500 towards that. and i think im definitely leaning towards the XXR 532s more than the diamond racing wheels. i like them, but if i can get the XXRs for cheaper, and i like the fact that they have an actual design/spoke pattern instead of just being widened, dished steelies.

    Also, im debating if i should shave my front bumpers sidemarkers...i dont know how expensive a project it would be. plus i really dont have a garage to do it in....i would be doing it in my apartment...which isnt too ventilated so im thinking thats probably not the best plan, and if i did do it i wouldnt have the money to get the bumper repainted, i dont know if rattlecanning it would look like shit or not.

    feel free to respond with tips/answers/stories.

    I'll be watching this. I have a set of mesh wheels that I'd sell ya for cheap, buy adapters and BAM instant classy understated look, lol. But seriously I think to start with xxr's or steelies are the right direction, cheap and easy to replace if damaged. I want more pictures tho.
