New wheels for my car! Hopefully we can start a compilation of what fits/doesn't fit for our cars!

Enkei Fujin (discontinued; now known as Enkei GT7)
17x7.5 +50 5x114.3

67.1mm (Hyundai OEM bore size) to 72.6mm (Enkei bore size) aluminum hubcentric rings used.
Weighs 17.5 lbs per wheel. Better MPG & accelerating response due to decrease in unsprung weight.

Wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport AS3+ 225/50R17.
Notes: Wheel width and offset, I wouldn’t recommend going any larger than an 8” width on a +50 offset. It will definitely rub the stock strut/spring perch. Lower offset needed to accommodate larger wheel widths.

Well played sir! 👍🏼
Hows the ride quality on the 50’s vs 55?
Would you give us a photo from the front to see the increased width of the 255?
Enks and pilots are a great choice.

The 50 vs 55 is negligible. The wheels/tire combo I bought happened to be second hand, but it's so close to the correct tire ratio that it didn't bother me if the speedometer is slightly off. If anything, going from a 6.5" width to 7.5" width made the most difference. The wider stance and tire combo makes the back feel more planted and less squirrely.

In addition, the weight of the wheel alone does change the ride quality. Everything feels more planted, and taking corners feels more confident (not that we have enough power to makes the wheels slip anyways).

Good to know!
Your last paragraph is exactly why I have a 60lb bag of sand in the trunk.🤣
I feel like its the narrowness of the OEM wheel combo, makes it feel unsteady in the rear. Wider tires/wheels and better grip fixes that tremendously!

It's weight my man, and you increased it by over 4% with the wider tire setup. Diameter is an exact match to the stock 205/55/17, so the speedo should be good. The extra weight helps to keep the back on the ground and yes more contact patch helps as well. I noticed an immediate difference in ride quality when I put some weight in the trunk. Your mileage should take a hit as well. I'm guessing about 1/2 a mile to the gallon, but well worth the sacrifice. That setup looks great on the red!

When I was swapping out the stock wheel/tire, it felt drastically heavier than the Enkei wheel/tire setup. Stock 17" wheel was extremely face heavy. But I'll have to weigh it one of these days when I get the chance.

Tire weight went up 3-4 pounds per tire and I would venture to say the rims saved you most of that back, so you might be on to something. The overall weight is about the same per axel. 205 is just too skinny and the reason the venue tracks for crap on the highway along with its light weight. The 225 is the perfect replacement, even on the stock 6.5 rims. Can’t wait to switch them out next year. Until then it’s the bag of sand.

Thank you for this. I just picked up a new Denim! First order of business is getting some new wheels/tires. I'm thinking 17x8, 225/50 series tires. Your pics are very helpful!

Do you know the weight of the stock 17" wheels? How much weight did you save per wheel with the Enkei?

Looks great! Love the flush exterior fitment.

I'm not sure of the exact weight, but they're substantially heavier (wheel + tire combined) vs the new setup. I found the stock 16" to be 24.8lbs according to Hyundai parts websites. So going up to 17" might be 1-2 lbs more? I'm saving around 8-10 lbs of unsprung weight per wheel based off of the guesstimated numbers.

Did you get +45 offset on your 17x8 wheels?

You anywhere near Pennsylvania? Maybe I'll buy your stock 17s from you. 😁

Still need to pick ones out, but I'm looking at wheels that are 17x7.5 or 17x8, both 40 offset. Is 235/50 R17 too greedy do we think for an 8" rim? Your 225/50 R17 looks great. I just want a little wider stance. I'd love it if they didn't rub.

Southern California, but I'm definitely going to be selling the stock 17's w/tires soon!

Dude you could run into problems with that setup your looking into.
Decreasing offset +10mm and increasing tire/rim width is a wicked combo.
Could rub on turn.
Increasing driveline weight that much is sure to hurt gas mileage. But that’s just my opinion.
The best replacement in my book is…
17x7 rim
45-50mm offset
225/50/17 (stock diameter)

The only issue with aiming for a 17x7 is you're very limited on aftermarket wheel choices. Even trying to get a 17x7.5 was a rough search. The reason I chose to do a 7.5" was due to being afraid I'd rub. But after putting the setup on and looking at the clearance. I can definitely put an 8" on, but I need a +45 offset or lower to prevent rub. The Venue's wheel well is really narrow, which is also a limiting factor.

Just got off the phone with America's Tire (Discount Tire) and their system "did not red flag" the following setup for a '21 Venue: 235/50R17x8 offset 40. Now, do I really want a 235 on this car??? Hmmmm......

Also did the math to find that the OEM setup in India (215/55R17) is the same total diameter as a 235/50R17, so it's not entirely crazy. A little voice inside me is saying to just do what OP did though (225/50R17x7.5) with offset 40. That'd be clean, not too off-roady. I'm just a fan of wheels that fill the wells nicely.
