ADDED: These beauties might be The Bomb with the mystery fender flares that Hyundai has teased us with, but not delivered even a picture of yet. Waiting...
I went with the Black Rhino Arches brushed gun metal wheels 19×8 +30 offset. Work great.Look tough. With Falcon wilderness rubber. Gorilla lock set.

Found this wheel today.
Wheel Tire Automotive tire Vehicle Synthetic rubber

Because my SEL Blue Stone has the silver and chrome grill, I'm thinking a silver rim with polished lip may be a good match to the vehicle. Can't find an exact 18" match for the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W, but they do make a 245/65R17 that is just about a perfect match and it's a 6-Ply (diameter is 29.5" vs. the stock 29.7"). Not sure I want to drop down to a 17" rim though, even if it does clear.

The Falken Wildpeak A/T3W in 265/60R18 is also a 6-ply, but is 30.6" in diameter; about an inch taller. If the speedo can be reprogrammed, then I'd like the extra 1/2" ground clearance and 1/2" fender gap fill too.

That‘s about 3% increase in diameter- if you don’t reprogram your speedometer, you’ve just extended your warranty 😉

I was shocked to see the difference in tire weight from the stock Kumho Crugen HP71 245/60R18 105H SL at 30lbs. and the Falken Wildpeak T/A3W 265/60R18 at 44lbs. :oops:

You have to save 14lbs. in each rim weight to break even if going to these slightly larger All Terrain tires.

Anyone have the stock SC 18" wheel raw weight yet?

Made up this crude chart of widths and offsets to see how far out each would go compared to the stock 18"ers.

Hopefully it might help someone here gain perspective.

I also set a long square aluminum piece against the outer most fender arch plastic to see how far the stock 18" tires stuck out.

The front tire is already at flush.

The rear tire is about 1/4"-1/2" inch inbound stock.

This was surprising to me. They look much further inbound than they are.

Found the Atturo Trail Blade ATS LT245/60R18 tire today that is the exact same size as the OEM 18" tire, but has an All Terrain tread and a very nice looking sidewall.

These tires are on the cheaper side. Does anyone have experience with them?

Played with a wheel simulator to see what some wheels I'm considering look like on the SC.

Can't rember what this wheel was, but I like the blend of street and off-road wheel lip. It seems to make the wheels look larger by not having a thick off-road lip or the ring of blocks inside the lip like the two below.

Currently leaning towards one of the two silver/grey wheels partly because of the silver grill on my Blue Stone SEL AWD, but the bronze is a common off-road adventure wheel color and black base color wheels are easier to keep clean. Decisions, decisions, decisions... 🤔
