2017 mkc

Hey Guys,

I just bought a new 2017 MKC and I wanted to buy a new set of rims for it. When I look online there aren't any stores that I can find that have wheels that match for the 2017 MKC because it's new. Do you know if the wheel sizes would be exactly the same as the 2016 MKC? Is this something I could ask my dealer?

Thanks,
Anthony

I'm sure the 2016, even the 2015 wheels will fit.

Ok, I'll play devils advocate.

Why would you want to change the rims that came with the 2017/

Maybe he likes a style/size on another year that they stopped making?

People do buy aftermarket wheels. I just bought a set for my brand new Golf R.

My dealer warned me as to changing wheels - The wheel size is actually a parameter in the AWD logic... If you change the wheel size to a different diameter the ECM needs to be flashed.

You can change the wheel diameter, just make sure the tire OD is the same.
