Hello everyone, i was wondering what are the biggest set of rims i can put on my car with a flush fitment. i am going to need tires soon and i was going to try to kill two birds with one stone and go ahead and buy some rims for the car while i was at it.





Thank you.

What do you mean the biggest?
Diameter? Width?

225/40x18 is size that will fit no problem at all.
I hated it on my 2015 ad 2016 Forte5 as the ride was very firm.

Some folks went to 19" size, some put 245s.

The best site, in my humble opinion, to compare wheels and tires. Stock vs proposed. It also accounts for offset.

Well, since you didn’t tell us what year I’ll post what info I have on my two first generations.



Wheels are 18x7" with 54mm offset from a 2010 Kia Soul Exclaim. Tires are the factory Soul 225/45-18
