Those wheels are pretty slick, definitely like the second option more. If you're planning on continuing the black on red color scheme, perhaps you should look into black rims with red pin-striping?

I've stopped changing out wheels on my cars years ago. I realized that mods are for the driver and I see wheels as a more "look at me" move. And the expense! The 18" on my Limited are plenty for me. I'll spend my money on interior upgrades like tinting and tasteful trim. Actually, there's little I'd like to change on my KONA, save the interior. I'ts a little "blah." Just my take on the subject. Owners should do what makes them happy.

I've been humming & hawing about it. Just ordered winter tires and will be mounting them to the OEMs.
I'll be watching classifeds and looking for 'wheel deals' over the white season.
Once spring 2019 rolls around will either just stick with OEM or put on a set of 18".
Here's what I was thinking. Partial to #1.

Do you know if a rim needs a specific offset? My previous '16 Tucson needed spacer rings for the Touren winter rims.

I was thinking more in the lines of all round, ease of cleaning included. Both look good but I prefer the second. I do like what you did to your own rims the best though.

Blessings and Peace

Yes, you will want a specific offset, I'm not sure what that is on your trim, however on the Ultimate the wheels are 18 x 7.5 with a 52mm offset.

Once you know this information you can use a website such as https://www.wheel-size.com/calc/ to determine what wheels you will want, or you can just go to a website like www.tirerack.com they now finally have the Kona listed and it takes away all the research you need to do like I had to do when I got my wheels...

Thanks for the info. And especially, thanks for the 2 site links - super helpful!
I really like the tirerack.com one as it shows the rim options on the vehicle. Big thumbs up.

I went with a little bit more aggressive offset on mine, bringing them out about an inch. 19 x 8.5 with a 38mm offset with 245 40 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500's.
