Hello,

I am in Canada I have the preferred time, which is the equivalent to the SE trim in the US. I am aware that even though it came with 15 inch wheels, 17 inch wheels should still fit on the Venue as well.

I actually own a set of winter tires but they were used on 2010 Hyundai Sonata until it was traded in for this vehicle. So I was wondering if anybody knew, if I were to purchase 17 x 6.5 rims, will a 215/60 R17 tire fit on the Venue?

Thank you!

Would not advise that fitment. You will be increasing the factory diameter, throwing off your speedometer quite a bit.
Factory 17s are equipped with a 205/55/17 on our 6.5” sel wheels. A 215/55/17 is about the biggest thing you can put on the 6.5 rim.
After about 10k miles it is my belief that a 16x7 rim would be optimum on the venue paired with 215/60/16. Keeps the speedo close and gives the venue a much needed increase in tire profile (+16%). Should produce a softer ride and reduce rebound over bumpy conditions.
Offset in wheel selection should stay between 40-48mm for appearance purposes and produce no rub on full turn.
Hope this helps.

This very helpful, thank you! To be honest as it is winter tires and honestly not too much driving will be done during the winter for me. I am more so wondering if it would even fit. It’s okay if the speedometer is off. So what you are saying is that it may fit but you wouldn’t advise it is that correct? Thank you again!

215/60/17 will fit on a 17x6.5, but the increase in overall diameter could lead to rubbing depending on the offset of the wheels.
The below comparison is my stock oem tire size vs the 215/60/17. Usually for winter snow tires, skinny tires are the rule as they cut through the heavy snow better. See how much you are increasing the overall diameter? Better to stick with the 205/55/17 imo.
