They are the Sparco Gravel 17x8's +35 (they make several offsets, these extended out 20mm past stock) in Bronze, and 255/70r17 Falken Wildpeak AT3W's! I had the same tires on before, but factory wheels and 20mm hub centric spacers (without they would rub), those were 265/60r18.

My mods list is quite large now lol.

Are you using the Eibach springs?
Yep. I almost went Truxxx but really didn't want spacers. Glad Eibach come out with theirs when they did.

Sweet, the lift looks really good.
I'm waiting for shocks to come out before I pull my Truxxx lift and put the Eibach springs in.

The factory shocks feel awesome with it. Much better than OEM, not counting the huge (proportionally) gain in ground clearance

That’s pretty close to what I paid and shipping to Hawaii was $25. I couldn’t pass it up.

good price to me. Solid item.

Others have drilled access holes in it to make oil changes even easier. I didn’t bother.

Looking to let the dealership change the oil. If they do a decent job and use the correct oil, I’ll let them worry about the “extra bolts”.

If they don’t, (use the correct weight) I’ll do it myself.

The plate takes only a few minutes to remove and reinstall. Remove the front 4 bolts completely, remove one of the two middle bolts, and just loosen the last 3 a few threads, pull the skid plate to one side and it drops free.
When you reinstall, just line the rear slots on the skid plate up with the 3 bolts, when those are lined up put a front bolt back in and it's suspended while you put in and tighten the rest of the bolts.
It's pretty painless.

Looks great!

Would love for you to share your tire/wheel fitment HERE - thread could use some traction if members are onboard for an all in one fitment thread.

Would that fit a 23 SanteFe also?

I highly doubt it. I went from a 2020 Fe to the Cruz back in 21.

How involved is a spring job like this? And does it require an alignment after?
