Worth considering Jim. However, the interference is a bit more than an inch in from the inner edge of the rim. That much offset change would not be a good idea in that the scrub radius would be seriously changed. And using a spacer that long would add considerable stress to the bearings and spindles. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Arple - We got our 2019 Ioniq PHEV last Thursday, and I did plan on using the brand new 15" snows from our Elantra. Was going to get new rims, so the offset could be specified. Guess that is not going to work.

Today I asked the dealer about the 2019 control arm bracket. The fellow I spoke with was not aware of the change. I'll follow up again tomorrow.

As for original post/old thread, ill just post my experience.



Nokian Hakkapeliitta R or R2

Studdless wintertires, they have impressed me on may levels.


+ Roadnoice is less than standard summertires (softer rubber)
+ Preformance in snow is superb.
+ Not been stuck in winter yet (have been stuck in summer)
+ consumtion kWh is same as summer, cant see a difference, and yes ive tested and tried cause i didnt belive it




- As all studdless tires they are not to good on ice above freezing (ice with water on top)
Compared to studded tires.


Been winterdriving for 16 years now with mostly studded tires.
But choice of tires depends on where one lives, local conditions, plowing and so on.
We also have a 2. car with studded tires. And have snowchains in ioniq, just in case. (not been used yet)

I have 205/50/17s on my VW. I think it's close-ish to the 205/55/16 of the Ioniq Electric Plus I ordered (PHEV).

Are there any cons to going up a size? I know people downsize their winters, but I can probably get 3-4 more winters out of my Continental SIs, and don't mind losing a little bit on the fuel economy front.

I'll have to look for the brake dimensions. It's a foot brake - not sure if that makes any difference.

You should be totally fine - it's less than 1% difference in outer diameter.
