Post you pics and wheel and tire specs here for the 2019+ Forte Sedans and Hatchbacks. It would be nice if we could get everyone to post the setup they have with specs and pics so others can see what they look like and how they fit? Most forums have this so all the info is in one place.

Stock wheel and tire specs
Center bore for all 2019+ Forte is 67.1mm
15x6.0 46mm offset 195/65r15
16x6.5 50mm offset 205/55r16
17x7.0 53mm offset 225/45r17
18x7.5 55mm offset 225/40r18

Not all sizes will fit all 2019+ Forte since the brakes are larger on the GT models and models with the electric e-brake (11.2 inch rear vs 10.3)

Any rub or clearance issues with this setup? I always like that color wheel too, gunmetal?
None. The camber is at 2 degrees all around, even with passengers in the back seat and luggage in the trunk. Tested on the CA I-15 with dips and bumps and vehicle down force. Gunmetal!
Offset on those is +45. Tires are 225/40R18.

Thinking about it, could have possibly gone wider on the wheels buI kept it per oem spec.
Looks great 馃憤
And it's a new Enkei wheel model, too.
What would be the maximum tire width/wheel width we can run? I'm considering getting some 18x8.5's on 245's square. How much rubbing would I have to contend with if I wanted to go on lowering springs/coils?
If I were to guess, 18x8.5 with a set of 245 tires, I would most likely run an offset between +50 to +45. I run 225 on 18x8.5 +42. I run -2 deg of camber, but I think I can get away with zero camber. I'm lowered approximately 1陆".

Before you invest in such wheels and tires, go ahead and give this a watch first:

I've always suspected this but i didn't have any data to prove it. I usually go with the widest wheels tire manufacturers recommend for a particular sized tire.
