Hey all, I'm currently in the market for a new car and have been looking very closely at the Veloster N. I live in the midwest so the stock summer tires are a no go during the winter. I currently run a set of General Altimax Artic 225/45R17 tires on 5x114.3 17x8 wheels with a +47 offset and I'm wondering if they'll fit over the performance pack brakes. I tried searching for the stock wheel size but other than them being 19s there doesn't seem to be much info on the web yet.

NO they won't. Use the tools at Tire Rack or Discount to find the right Wheel and Tire combinations.

Blessings and Peace

I did already check Discount Tires site before and they have no information on the OE wheels except that they're 19s. Also when viewing the wheels by vehicle section and selecting the Veloster N PP, clicking "shop wheels that fit" gives zero results.

Tire Rack does at least give results and it looks like the smallest size wheels they say will fit are 18s. Do we know if there are any 17" wheels that fit or is the barrel simply too small to clear the brakes? I might be ok with buying a new set of winter wheels but I don't want to replace wheels and tires that are only a year old.

18" rims can fit, 17" would scrape the top of the caliper. If your looking at a specific car, measure the inner radius of the wheels you have, and compare to the radius of your interested vehicle to 5mm above the caliper. That will give you acceptable clearance, in most conditions if you hit something that would warp the wheel.

Dang, alright. That's disappointing but not entirely unexpected. I'll have to look into pricing on a set of 18" wheels and winter tires but right now I'm deciding between the VN and a WRX and it's mostly going to come down to price. Adding in a set of wheels and tires will definitely hurt the Veloster option.

The tires for the N are specifically produce for it by Pirelli. They are marked on the tire itself and confirmed by; Albert Biermann. Best advise talking to a tire/wheel specialist. He doesn't own a Veloster N so, his personal knowledge is very limited.

The winter alloys I purchased from the dealer are 18" with 114.3 lug spacing, 67.1mm Center bore +50mm offset.
The tires are 225/40/18.
Hope this info is helpful.
Looking at the clearance between the front calipers and the rims, 18" is definitely the smallest you can go on the performance package.
