Hi Doodog

I am trading my V n/a for VT and i used 16inch steelies on my N/A last winter and no problems and i had the tech package with the 18". I am also curious if the 16 will fit the VT as the rotors are bigger. Anyone can help as well? txs :)

keep in mind the turbo has bigger rotors than the non turbo , i might put the front 2 on and try driving it

from car and driver

"What the folks at Hyundai did not do—and we applaud them for it—is crank down the suspension. Little about the base Veloster’s chassis changes beyond larger front-brake discs (11.8 inches instead of 11.0) and bigger, 18-inch wheels with 215/40 Kumho Solus tires. They’re not even summer tires, just all-seasons, and no factory upgrade is offered"

Look in the hatch at the spare (in Canada) that will likely be the minimum wheel size. Im going to try the 15" steelies from my Elantra.

I had 15'' wheels with rims for my Elantra 2012 GLS. I got them direct from the dealer. They told me they would work fine with my VT.

had a chat with the service manager
he said the turbo did indeed have larger rotors , and the minimum rim would be a 17 inch

I'd really double check this, as this contradicts what I was told. And doesn't make much sense. They may be trying to sell you another set.

My winters are 15'' General Tire, btw.

Yeah that. The rotors are less then an inch bigger. A 12" plus rotor might need a 17" wheel. I'll toss on one of my 15s this weekend and see if they fit.

I tried my 16 inch wheel that worked on my Elantra 2011 but it does not fit. Maybe a different 16 inch wheel will clear the caliper.

sure enough the spare is a 16 inch, so why would the dealer tell me i need 17 inch minimum if its got a 16 inch as a spare, that being said , weather permiting tuesday im going to slap both fronts on and try and drive it 50 feet , see if they really do or do not fit
by the way , there 16 inch from my 2011 elantra

Mine were not OEM rims, there we bought at Costco. So they don't have the same shape. Anyways, if Hyundai Canada charges 89$ for rims, I am going to look for cheap mag wheels that will look better than black wheels anyway.

ok so i tried the 2011 16 inch rims again , bolted them on, all 5 bolts , wheel will not turn at all, my gues is the 16 inch spare is a bit different shape than the elantra rim

just means i have to get black rims for the winter
17 i think

Yeah my 15s wouldnt fit at all. The 16s should be fitting though. I'm wondering if it's an offset issue or the fact that the caliper has been moved.

The plot thickens.

Could it be the width of the tires? Spares are very skinny allowing for more room behind but regular rims actually surround the brake assembly maybe. I'm not entirely sure but worth a look see

Dealer here is selling an aluminum 16 set as a winter setup here. I imagine that some of you who had tried yours and found that they do not work, are actually catching on the face of the caliper. H did something with the way the caliper sits on the VT which makes it slightly different.

In Toronto, we don't get much snow compared to Chicago or New York...so I am gonna stick to the stock tires for now and see how it performs its 1st Winter season.
