Putting the stock 19 inch wheels on a 2.0T premium?

Hello folks, has anyone ever attempted to change their factory 18 inch wheels on the 2.0 Premium (NON RSPEC) to 19 inch wheels? Specifically those OEM ones. I am looking for a bit of advice.

I have wanted these wheels forever but I never got the rspec package car with them. I have been trying to find out if it is possible? Do people do this or is there something on the Rspec that makes those wheels able to sit on it? I know someone that changed their wheels from stock factory oem to some avant garde ones that were an inch or two larger than the stock ones. He needed to get spacers or something for it. Would it just be a matter of buying a set of front and a set of rear wheels and plug/play so to speak? .. The 18 and 19s are both 5 lugs/bolts i think ?

Do folks think it is a bad idea to go to the dealer and request 4 new OEM 19 inch wheels with tires and just have them put them on? Do you think the car would look funny when it doesnt have the bigger brembo calipers with these bigger rims?

I have a feeling that many of you will just tell me I should have gotten an Rspec if I want these features... But here I am, with a Premium model and not an Rspec. I have had it since 2013 so I think I can finally bite down and do this type of mod. I just love those 19 inch OEM Rspec rims.

Thoughts? Has anyone done this ? I suspect all wheels can be made to fit and the car does use 19 inch wheels for its Rspec model. Excuse my grammar.

It's a direct swap, your wheel hubs are the same as r spec

If i were to do it, would it be better to get all season tires /the equivalent of what i have tire wise? Or perhaps maybe it is a better idea to just get winter tires on the 18s i have now, and leave these 19s with summer tires? Not really sure at the difference in feel when driving all season vs just summer ones. The easiest thing to do i suppose is get all season tires on the 19s?..

I want to try the dealer because I think i will be guaranteed brand new wheels and tires. Versus hoping an ebay listing has the ones i want because i have noticed most of them have scuff marks and whatnot.

I put snows on my stock 18" wheels and bought some black 19" 5-spoke wheels, with summer tires, for what little summer we have up here. I live in Minn and all-seasons would be useless in the snow on the GC. The stock Hyundai 19" or even the 18" wheels from the dealer will likely be awfully spendy. I used tirerack for my wheels and my wife's Sonata 2.0T Sport wheels. I put snows on her stock wheels as well.

And the 19" wheels will look fine on your NON Brembo brakes.

Is there really a difference then between Summer and all Season? (I have noticed that my car generally is useless in snow here in Chicago). So does it even matter? Maybe I should get summer tires even though summer is almost done.

I just looked up my car on TireRack, and I notice most of the rims are 500-700 a piece. I highly doubt the dealer would charge me 1000 per wheel ?

I remember them quoting me on just tires and the packages be 900-1100 for the 4 tires total. Maybe I can expect 500-700 per wheel for the OEM 19s, and then 1000 over that for new tires..

All season are garbadge in the snow with RWD.
Get snows for winter, summer for summer.
Get good summer tire that actually has grip - Continental Extreme contact Sport.

Rims, you can find good amount of rims at 1 k for all 4.
19" Koning OVERSTEER ran me $650 shipped for all 4, and are lighter than oem (total of 16lbs) shop around - find model you like and search on Google. Niche is another inexpensive brand.

The wheels will fit just fine with the factory size tires even with the non Brembo brakes as long as your not crazy lowered or anything like that. Im in the minority in that i really like the look of the factory 19" wheels on my 2014 ultimate, i still have them on. They are considerably heavier than most aftermarket options. Theres been so many oem 19" posted on here over the years for cheap that i wouldn't even consider paying full retail for new oem ones, even if used ones have a few minor scratches, having them professionaly reconditioned should still be considerably cheaper. The downside is you have much better tire selection in 18". Im originally from the Chicago area, it pains me to hear you have to drive your coupe in the Chicago winter snow and salt but i get it, been there done that. Id go with some UHP summer only for the 19" and all season for your 18".

I actually don't drive it on days when it snows in the morning, two years ago or three i learned my lesson when i got stock on nothing and needed a push to even go from side street to main. lol.

But yeah I am pretty dead set on those specific 19s. From the R Spec model.

Perhaps I will get summer on the 19s and just get winter for the 18s atm. And use the summer ones from April / May to Octoberish.

I have used Goodyear eagle sport all seasons for the last 4 years. This is the first time I have run summer tires. The Nantang ns-2 tires are less than half the price of the goodyear's. Even with a cheap summer tire I find they run smoother than the all seasons. I never plan on going back.

I rather run 18s and have the extra side wall. Cheaper tires and better ride quality.

You can get 4 stock 19 inch OEMS for 500 bucks. If you search and can't find any send a PM. Although as stated before the 18s are better for snow. And higher sidewall is a must.

Dealers have no special connections when it comes to tires. Stick to Discount or Tire Rack so you don’t get your head ripped off.

You can find used OE wheels all day long on eBay and car-part dot com. If the condition is not what you like, there are usually local companies that do cosmetic reconditioning for around $150/wheel, and many times you can get them to go lower since they’re doing all 4.

I recently lucked out and found a guy nearby selling his BK2 19" R-Spec wheels for $200 with good front tires (but bald rear tires). I'm currently waiting for the tread on my 18" tires to wear down enough to replace, and then I'll just buy new rear tires for the 19s.

I am concerned, however, with the change in ride quality that I will experience, seeing as even with the stock suspension and 18s it rides harshly. Has anyone gone from 18s to 19s that could clarify how noticeable the difference in ride quality is?

Wheel size change doesn't really effect ride quality as much as tires do. With 18's you can get a larger side wall which will be a smoother ride than say low pro 19's. Keep in mind cheap tires are cheap for a reason. Tread factors in the quietness of the tire and drive ability.

I am surprised to see someone also mentioned that the car is useless in the snow. I haven't had a problem with the correct tire in driving in snowy conditions. Sounds like more of user error.

Someone else also mentioned being slower for having 19's over 18's due to weight. It really isn't a noticeable difference the rotational force and the weakness of the car, it doesn't matter. Say if I were going to the track there is a difference.

Just to add

With taller tires, sidewall matters more for cornering.

I've had my car for 10+ years, is my daily, and I live in alaska, nuff said.

Man I went to Alaska for a mission and I loved it. Too bad I feel like the roads have a perpetual layer of salt on them.

They quit using salt like 20 years ago, they have been using somethings else and gravel. My windshield and front bumper is chipped to all hell.

Still as messy, less rust

Stupid question, ... do i have to worry about changing anything suspension wise or doing any modifications to the car with 19 inch wheels when i got it with 18 stock? Should I worry at all about speedometer not being exact or something? Does the weight of the wheel matter so long as I do not go over 19 inches in size? If i decide to get a wheel that is not the stock one, I apologize for the dumb question lol.
