What Wheels Fit: Hyundai Genesis Coupe

What Wheels Fit: Hyundai Genesis Coupe


– So it was a couple years
ago when I was in college and I was sitting in my second
Excel spreadsheet class. And I’m sitting there
thinking to myself, I am never going to (bleep) use
this in my entire life. And I look back at it now and I’m like, oh my god I was so wrong. And when I’m talking about
spreadsheets I can only mean one thing. What’s going on guys, Gels
from Fitment Industries, and we are back today with
another What Wheels Fits. Today we’re going to be talking about the Hyundai Genesis
Coupe and we’re gonna do both generations. And of course before we
just jump right into it, I gotta give you guys a disclaimer, that what I’m about to say, the Fitment ranges that
I’m about to tell you are, at the very minimum, have
to have your fenders rolled or at least pulled, in
some cases probably not, but just know that for a lot of these the guys are running rolled
fenders and pulled fenders or even removed fender liners, anything, they have to modify their
fenders, just know that that probably might be the case for you. So let’s just dive right
into it with the typical Fitment range for the
first and second generation Hyundai Genesis Coupe. So you’re looking at diameters
of 17 to 22 inch diameters. Widths from seven to eight and a half, and offsets from +32 to +45. Now again those are the
recommended Fitment ranges but (bleep) just push get
the (bleep) out of here just, just (grunts). That’s not what we’re about. Fitment, it’s literally in our name. So just one quick thing to
note on these cars is that for the first and second
generations a lot of people are running more of a staggered
setup than a square setup. And what a staggered setup
means is that they’re running a wider wheel in the back and
a more narrow wheel up front. And number one, these
cars are rear wheel drive and number two, they just
have a thick like with two C’s booty on the back so people are
can fit more of a wider tire on the back versus the front. So jumping right into the first
generation we see diameters of 18, 19, and 20 inches
as far as wheel diameter. So first we’re gonna go
over some square setups. So for an 18 inch wheel with
a square setup you’re looking at sizes usually around 18×9.5+30, for a nearly flush setup. When you get into the +15,
+12’s, even the +10’s for a more aggressive Fitment and that’s
where you start seeing more of the poke Fitment come out. When as soon as you dump
below that +20 offset, you start to get a little more
aggressive, the wheel starts poking outside the car a little
more and then, well yeah. We also see people running an
18×10+30 for more of a flush setup and even an 18×10+20, so
typically you’re going to see that 30 to 20 as far as the offsets go. Now even though the 19 inch
diameters are the most common from what we see in our
gallery on these cars, not a lot of people,
actually pretty much nobody, is running a 19 inch square
setup for that matter on the first generations, or
even the second generation. So like anything bigger than an 18, people are running a staggered setup. This is just how it goes, I’m sorry. If you are running a 19
square setup, I’m sorry, you’re just like one of
the thousands of people. Sorry. So on that note let’s just go right into the staggered setups. So for an 18 inch staggered
setup, we’re looking at a front width of 9.5 with
a rear width of 10.5. So for a staggered setup
for an 18 inch wheel, you’re looking at a 9.5 wide up front and a 10.5 in the back. Now that is the most common
staggered setup for an 18 inch wheel on these cars. Now of course you can go up
from that or down from that, so I’ll go ahead and list
a couple more examples. We’ll throw some up on the
screen, with the specs, to show you guys what they look like. We see people running
an 18×9.5+22 up front with an 18×10.5+22 in the rear. 18×9.5+15 in the front,
18×10.5+15 in the rear, and that gets you more of
a poke Fitment rather than a flush Fitment. And then moving on to a
19 inch staggered setups, some quick examples, you’re
looking at a 19×8.5+15 up front, 19×10+20 in the rear. 19×9.5+22 in the front,
19×10.5+22 in the rear. 19×9.5+22 up front, and
a 19×11+22 in the rear. And a 19×10+5 up front, and a 19×11+8 in the rear. So you can fit a wide
variety of not only widths, but offsets on these cars. It’s just a matter of
adjusting your camber, depending on what kind
of suspension you have and the amount of modification
you do to your fenders. And of course we didn’t forget about the 20 inch staggered setup. So we’re looking at 20×9+30 up front, 20×10.5+40 in the rear. 20×9+20 in the front,
20×10+25 in the rear. 20×9.5+20 up front, and 20×10.5+25 in the rear. So again, we see the bigger
wheels being more common on these cars versus the 18 inch. The 19’s, like I said,
are the most common. You even see more 20 inches
than you see 18 inches. It’s just because they
fit good on those cars. If you’re looking for more
of like a stance setup, versus like a track setup, you’re gonna be going with
more of a 19 or 20 inch wheels on these cars. So moving on to the second
generation of the Genesis Coupe, we see the 18 inch wheel
just get, just get the, like we did with our regular Fitment. We just get the (bleep) out of here! Just, ugh! The 18’s, they’re gone! It’s 19’s and 20’s now. We’re playing big boy games. So in this generation we
see that that square setup is basically even more
non-existent than it was in the first generations. Everybody is running a
staggered setup on these wheels. Because like I said, with
the first generation, with the 18 inch, we saw more
people running square setups. But with the 19’s and
20’s, we didn’t see that. It was all staggered. So that makes sense if we
got rid of the 18 inches for the second generations,
that we’re only gonna see mostly staggered setups. Now as far as sizes and offsets go, they’ve mostly stayed
the same in the front, but the rears have widened
out just a little bit because the body styling
has changed on these cars a little bit from the
first to second generation. People have decided to go a
little more aggressive with it and it just fills up that
wheel well a little more than the first generation. So if you’re looking at
running some 19’s on this generation car you’re looking
at 19×9.5+22 up front, 19×10.5+22 in the rear. We have other examples
of a 9.5+20 up front, 10.5+20 in the rear. 9.5+22 in the front, 11+25 in the rear. If you wanna rock some 20’s
on there you’re looking at 20×9+25 in the front, 10.5+20 in the rear. 9+18 in the front, 10×11+20 in the rear. This list goes on and on and on. And as far as suspension setups
go, you’re looking at like a lot of people are
running Eibach springs, time-lowering springs,
or tane lowering springs, tane coil-overs, BC racing
coil-overs which we now have on the website, by the
way, fitmentindustries.com, go ahead and check it out. So something that’s sort
of mentioned on these cars is that with like you know like,
most cars like your Subarus or your Evo’s, or like your
DSM’s, there’s like a specific wheel that people go with. Like your RPF1’s versus
like your XXR 527’s for your second gen DSM’s. Like why, there’s other wheels
that fit those cars guys. The Genesis Coupe has like a
plethora of different wheels that people run on them. People get really creative
with the wheels that they put on these things. So of course you have your
RPF1’s, but you have everything from those to your Weds,
to your Varrstoen’s. We even have AodHan DS-02’s
showing up on a lot of these. Rohana, Fordstar, Velgen’s,
to get those bigger sizes for these cars. It’s just there’s so
many options out there. Just be mindful when you are
picking out a set of wheels for your car, if you do
have a Genesis Coupe. That if you have like an
Rspec, or an Ultimate edition that come with the Brembo brakes, to make sure that the
wheels that you’re getting are designed for a big brake clearance. You wanna make sure that
the spokes of your wheel aren’t smashing in to your brake caliber. Because you buy wheels, and then you’re really
excited for your wheels, and then they show up, and then you go to put them on your car, and your heart is broken because
they don’t fit on your car, ask me how I know. So for the most part,
a 19×9.5 in the front, and a 19×10 or a 10.5 with a 25 to 20 offset is gonna be like the setup that almost everybody goes with. Like that’s your happy medium. Of course you have
people running like 19×11 like with a zero offset on these cars, but those are people
like running with like the air suspension and
some pretty crazy camber. Like you can fit those on
these cars, just know that, there’s a lot more extensive modifications that goes into that. So if you’re looking to see
what other kind of wheels fit on these cars, go to our gallery,
it’s a, the Genesis Coupe is a very popular car in our gallery. You can punch in the exact
specs that you wanna see on these vehicles, most
likely it’ll be on there. So head on over to fitmentindustries.com, head over to our gallery,
punch in Genesis Coupe, punch in the wheel specs
that you’re looking for, and not only will you see how
that looks like on those cars, but it also gives you a
reference to what tire sizes people are running, and
what kind of suspension people are running. So that’s gonna wrap
it up for this episode of What Wheels Fits. Go ahead and comment down
below on what cars you guys would like to see us do
next because I just love going through sheets and sheets in Excel, going through data, I mean. But no seriously, let us
know what you guys want us to cover next, we’d be
more than happy to do it. We always read the comments,
so we take your guy’s comments into consideration when
we do these videos. If you’re looking for wheels,
tires, suspension, gear, anything, head on over
to fitmentindustries.com. We’ve got you covered there. But I’m Gels from Fitment Industries, don’t forget to subscribe
and we’ll see you later. Peace.

  1. The square set ups on this car makes the traction control freak out. The car came with a staggered set up, and that's what the tcs sensors look for. The guys with square setups turn tcs off at all times. I own a 2015 genesis coupe r-spec

  2. The body size and fenders arches/ size are the same in bk1 and bk2 just an fyi. 1st hens and 2nd gen are the same when it comes to wheel specs.

  3. genesis are such terrible performance car that stancing is all you can do to it. lol its like a tC.

    so sad and such a waste of a RWD turbo car. v6 sucks if you want a v6 your better off with a 350z

  4. What about for widebody ? We roll with 19×9.5J ET12, or a set of 18x9j + 18x10j ET22 on track-use. Wonder how you guys think

  5. 4:23 why? I am pretty sure the groups I'm in ragged ok this guy for his exhaust system. With the vette type idea coming out of the rear.

  6. YES THANK YOU
    I’ve had my copper BK2 for almost 2 years and even though I’m not running fender flares, this was still kind of useful. But can you PLEASE do a new video and start a series where you take a particular car model (this week it’s the fist and second gen Genesis coupes, next week it’s the BRZ/FRS/86, then it could be the last 5 gens of the honda civic, then the last 4 gens of the impreza wrx/sti family, then do the S550 Mustang GT and so on and so forth) and talk about what specific wheels fit in terms of style? I think that’d be an awesome series because everyone’s looking for opinions on wheels when shopping around, right?

  7. You can fit 17" wheels with both generations. They will also fit over brembos if your offset is low (+15 or so). Most 17s will fit over brembos EXCEPT RPF1s in the FRONT, unless you want crazy poke.

    Current setup for track:
    Rear – RPF1 17 x 10 +45 offset
    Tire – 275/40/17 TOYO R888R
    Front – Kosei K1 TS 17 x 8 +45 (with 25mm spacer)
    Tire – 245/50/17 Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec

  8. Someone needs to made a device that can attach to the wheel hub and be able to measure out what the perfect offset would be to get the wheels were you want them …. Buying a wheel with "their" fixed offset does not work.. I need a wheel custom made to the offset I want so that they sit where I want them to sit

  9. i had 18×9.5+22 and megan racing lowering springs on my bk2 and the fronts were rubbing against the suspension so i'm confused

  10. I own a 2013 gen coupe rspec and run 19×9.5 +12 and 19×11 +15 without having any fenders rolled or pulled.

  11. I find it funny that square setup is more common in the 18" sizes for the gen 1 coupe. Staggered is the OEM fitment for the coupe of both generations, so why would someone want to go square fitment?

  12. So I feel like this is a dumb question. But is it possible to have air suspension and still have some camber?

  13. Why doesnt anyone run a squared? I like the back width, I think it would look pretty okay with the front wide as well.

  14. Eagerly waiting for What Wheels Fit: Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 8/9 and also What Wheels Fit: Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X

  15. Im running squared xxr 530 19×8.75 +33 offset with a 245 45 19 tire all around on my 2012 gen coupe 3.8 rspec.. imo the handling feels good and grips well. I have less then a 1/4 inch in the front from ribbing the rim of the wheel and the strut,

  16. I haven't put any wheels on the genesis yet because I know as soon as I do, I'm gonna see some that shit on whatever I have.

  17. Can you do a video on Sti? Not WRX. The Sti only. Wrx has no issues with fitment. Sti is hard to find wheel that clear brembos

  18. I just bought rims for my genny …19×9.5 +22 and rear 19×10.5 +22 ..I don't want any poke what tire size I should get for this set of rims…I appreciate any feedback…this my first time buying aftermarket rims for my car, I need your help
    Thanks

  19. Its funny how these wheels look nice but make the car way slower by adding a ton of weight . If you want speed, go with forged lightweight 8.5 wide 18 inch with a low offset. Do not put huge wheels on weak engines.
