16" should work--assuming a correct offset. I would assume any Huyndai/Kia 16" wheel will be fine. The caveat will be using tape weights--they cannot be in the same plane as the caliper inside the wheel...they can be inboard, but not near the wheelface/rim intersection.

So for $560 + M&B.





Top 20 best winter tires for 2015-2016

MSN rated the Nexen at #10 in its top 20 winter tires in a recent test.

I have also subscribed to using a "wide" winter tire, which is counter to the traditional get a tall, narrow tire.
The narrow tire is better in fresh snow--that's really about it. The new tires are all about sipes...and more sipe/sq.in. are better.

Continental Tires explains it here: Wide tires

UPDATE: I am extremely impressed with these "budget" tires. They are very surefooted--especially in braking. I see no drop-off in performance from General Arctics, which I had on my previous car. They are way better than Nitto or Firestone which I have had in the past. They may not quite be at the Nokian level...buy they were half the cost too.

15" will not clear the brakes. 16" does.

I have a 2019 elantra Sport and i was reading through the posts about the set up. Original size is 225/40/18 and i want to go 205/55/16 for winters on steel rims. I wanted to know if the 19 model are the same as the previous elantra sports.

Just ordered Blizzak WS90's for my stock rims, aftermarket rims for my stock shoes and will ride those out till Fall of 2020. I had Blizzak WS80's on my previous car, 2013 Abarth for 5 winter driving seasons and they never let me down and I drove in some bad stuff during that time, so I see no need to change things up, although this is the newest version of the tire, hence the new series name. Like my previous car, it will look good in the winter time with its stock rims, the ES wheels really are nice though!


***NOTE***


I know there's a lot of Canadians here and when I say I drove through some "bad stuff" its relative to what we're accustom to here in the lower 48, surely doesn't compare to what you guys get in the winter and for how long, that's for sure. BTW, how much snow is on the ground in Edmonton right now, LOL
