Hi all,

Just took delivery of a 2023 SX over the weekend. I live adjacent to a large network of forest service / logging roads and wanted a vehicle to cover ground quickly and more comfortably than a body on frame truck or SUV. I put around 50 miles of gravel driving on the car so far, ranging from freshly graded to really rough. I think the Seltos will be ideal for my purposes with a mild lift and replacing the stock 235/45/18s which will be a direct swap to my wife's 2018 Soul turbo.

I've seen the thread about the 2" Truxxx lift. Any long term users here?

Eibach also has a spring kit.
Anyone installed this one?

Related question. I want to go to the smallest diameter wheel with largest sidewall that will fit after the lift is installed. A lot of Subarus run 215/75r15 for similar purposes. Will I be limited to 16s due to rotor clearance?

Thanks!

I think 16" may be the smallest you'll be able to get, even TireRack doesn't list a wheel size smaller than that for any of the Seltos models. What tire size were you hoping to run?

These 16x7 et30 off the 06 LJ are an option. They might poke a little, which is not my favorite look. Would obviously remove the 33s. View attachment 1622
no way in hell those would fit on your Seltos, even with a lift...too big, too heavy...

EDIT: nevermind...you meant the wheels, not the tires...right? lol

Correct, wheels only. Same bolt pattern.
+30 will probably poke a bit, I think +38 to +50 is the recommended range for the Seltos. Do a test fit and see where you're at, might be liveable. You'll probably need hub rings though.

Reference any long term users, Khoontaman and Warstew appear to be the only ones that have posted about installing the kit with over a year since any updates. You could try DM to one or both to see if they have any further insight.
