So this past Wednesday I had new rims put on my ES, re-used the stock tires as they all have 8/32nds w/18K on the clock. I mean these wouldn't be my 1st, 2nd or even 5th choice for tires but I can't just ditch them with so much rubber on them. These are Konig Oversteers in 18 x 8 w/+45mm offset and they fit perfectly. You can see the offset but by NO means does it look like an old school rollerskate going down the road either, LOL. The finish is called Opal. I also asked them to see if the OEM centercap fit in there and they did!! I then took the Konig centercaps and put them in my OEM rims, keep em' guessing, LOL. The stock rims were then wrapped in brand new Blizzak WS90's in the OEM size and await the impending doom which is winter, so the ES will have brand new winter shoes and these tires are square as far as the shoulder goes, they look really cool, well, as far as winter tires can be cool, atleast the ES will look good in the winter as well.


Enjoy and feel free to post questions or comments, good or bad;)























So from this...



....to this, sorry, the sun was coming up here!

I like the stock wheels, but those look great as well - using the stock Hyundai center caps is a huge bonus. Nice!

Looks great. How much did you pay for the rims.

They list for $157 a piece but I got them for $146 through my buddy who's the store manager at Discount Tire;)

Awesome rims
Just put the same rims at 18x8 with stock tire size but as you say aren’t big enough really to protect the rim and will be going to at lest 235s
My car is same color 2018

I'm going to try and see if the 2019 Veloster R-spec centercaps fit in there as well, since they have the little red ring that goes around the outside I thought it would be a nice touch, tie into the little bit of red in the sides of the headlights, just don't know if they're the same size but if I had to guess I'd say they are:)
