Thou this is way better then Spec SX gave you 5.5 inchs being wrong and 139.7MM right. Thou we in the USA still use both the SAE/Metrix system for measurments. ALL RIMS these days are expressed in bolts x MM (on center) terms. It still is slightly off too. As it is ONLY for 2003-2009 (BL) RWD chassis Sorentos. And will not apply to 2011 (XM) FWD chassis ones that use 5x114MM.

BTW to answer your question. Not much else uses it as it is a rather oddball size for RWD as things go.

That said, These are the most common ASIAN/and others. Other makers as well have thier own way of doing things and other variations on 4/5/6x MM on center patterns.

4x100
4x104
4x114
5x114

GM 5x110 5x115
BMW 5x120
MB 5x112
Jag 5x108
VW 5x100 5x112 5x130
Volvo 5x108

Some Dodge and Suzuki have the same bolt pattern but the problem is the center bore... The center bore is a much more important issue then the bolt pattern... You can find adapters but before fitting them check with your insurance company...

Yes what you say is an important thought. But backwards really. And only a minor issue over the other one. Here is why. NO rim will fit form ANY vech to this Sorento inless it is a 5x139.7 one period. Adapts are merely to change differences like a 5 bolt Mustang GT rim onto a 4 bolt (common) setup. Or a Old School 50-80's aircooled VW to use modern rims. ANY rim that is made in 5x139 can be easily machined out to 95.3 center bore far more then playing with and finding adpts to do both. Unless you insist on buying first for the sake of buying them cause they "look nice" and trying to put on by boring to 95.3 a rim that starts as less then 95.3 center bore. Many might be able to do this and have the meat to loose. But when you get to the point of a 90 center bore trying to go to 95.3 or greater. Fruit loops come to mind. Again I say KIA used an ODDBALL size. There are rims for it but not falling out of sky to make your ride look bad on 20's for you at the tire store. Live with it and what they have out there. Tire Rack has many options. Adapts are never the answer for this. As with adapts also comes OFFSET CHANGES that will do more harm then good. Buy the rims that fit, not the vech to fit the rims you bought or can not live without.

Brake dust shields are nice fix too if you can not live with cleaning or teh sight of dust on rims. That is till the brakes overheat/warp all the time on you. Same thing as rim adapts. Just becasue they MAKE them does not mean it is smart to BUY them. They make Rabbit Foot key fobs too.
