Hey all, I am new here and have just recently purchased a 2019 Forte Fe. I was wondering what the maximum tire size I could run as I currently run the dealership 215s and want something a little bigger.

maximum you can put is 335/35x17 and the wheel height will be 666 mm... hell yeah, why not? :D

Only problem is that you must go dead straight, add 60 mm spacers, and extend the bolts.
Other than that it will be fun.


Now, seriously - bigger means wider, taller, higher side wall?
OEM size is 225/40x18, but the ride is very rough, stiff side walls.


best visual comparison of wheels and tires - includes offset calculation if you change wheels.

I would not go beyond 235 on the OEM wheel. Some tires might not even be specified for this narrow rim.
