After putting 18's on for winter I am definitely interested in going with 18's for summer too and was actually looking at the exact same wheels.

Why are you thinking 245/40 instead of 235/40? Just curious because I think the original pirelli's are 235/35 at 8", and at least locally the 245/40's are about $30 a tire more than the 235/40's.

I'm not a tire expert, just curious to help inform my own thinking.

Not yet. The other 3 wheels will be here Friday. Then I gotta purchase tires. I only ordered one wheel initially to make sure they fit cause its easier to ship one wheel back than it is four.
That's smart actually. I've never purchased wheels before, but I will be planning on it in the future. This is a good tip for me hah. Please upload some pics of the new look when you can though, I fell in love with Fifteen 52's when I saw them on a Ford Focus ST for the first time (More specifically the Turbomac's). I just pray that I like these on the VN. So far this looks like a good start though! I do look forward to your future posts :)

Just curious, will these also fit with the n performance package? Seriously considering buying a set as the cold weather gets closer.
18" wheels will clear the brake calipers. Always test fit as maybe some brands have a bigger rim barrel than others, or offset issues could be a problem, but stock wheels are 18x9 with a 55mm offset, while non PP package cars are 18x7.5 with a 53mm offset. I've seen folks here with 45mm offset which pushes the outside edge of the wheel/tire away from the center of the car, but they appear to fit inside ok and tuck into the fenders/quarters on bumps without rubbing. a 50mm to 55mm offset is a safer bet though.

Forgive me for the questions, this is really my first time buying/learning about wheels and I don't want to mess up. So if I get a set of these integrales that are 18x8.5 with an offset of 48Mm that are 5 x 114.3, I should be okay? And I'd still have to figure out a tire size.

Yes, and 245/40 18 tires will be the size that's optimum fit for that wheel. You will need hubcentric adapters for the wheels to fit onto the Veloster hub. I cant remember the exact size right now. I already have my adapter rings, TPMS, and wheels. Just waiting on tires.

Stock PP wheels are 19x8 not 18x9.

I assume the hubcentric adapters and the rings are the same thing. If you could let me know what size whenever you get a moment I would be forever grateful!
