Hey y’all, I’m looking at getting some rims for my PP N. The rims are perfect but the offset is +30. From what I’ve seen, everyone runs +35 to +45 for big brake clearance. So I wanna look into some spacers that add +10, butIt’s my first time buying spacers so please give me some suggestions!

Huh? If you're at +30 and add a spacer you're going to push the wheel out more, meaning lower the offset closer to 0. You don't want that or your wheel is gonna poke like crazy.

I don't mean to be rude but I'd recommend reading up about offset.

I don't want more negative offset on the wheel, I want more positive. If you look on here: Hyundai Veloster N | Fitment Industries you can see everyone is running between 35-45 offest most commonly. No one is running 30 because the front caliper is too large. Unless I am just mixing up my wheel and backspacing which I definitely could be, but either way I just need to get it to 40 so I can mount my wheels when they come in.

It’s the terminology used “0” would be equally spaced from the face of the hub (same amount to the inside of the car as to the outside). A plus 50 means 50mm pushes closer to the inside of the car. The stock Performance Package wheels are us 55. So if you had plus 40 wheels, and added a 20 mm spacer you would effectively be plus 20...which would push the tires too far out and rub the fender wells.

Ahhhh, thank you. I see i had it backwards. 😂 well looks like I'll be emailing the company asking for 35mm wheels tomorrow.

Looks like you figured it out.

People aren't running +30 or lower because of caliper clearance; if anything, lower offsets are better for caliper clearance because of increased wheel face concavity. Like I mentioned before it's because the wheels would begin to poke out more from the fender and be at risk for rubbing plus look a bit weird.

I'm running 18/40/235 with 50 off set, going to go up to a 245 on my next set of tires. Hyundai does not recommend an offset difference of more than 5 mm, as this could negatively affect the handling characteristics of the car. Stock is 55
