Question Cadenza on 17"

Hi there, I just wanted to know if someone here have tried 17" steel wheels on their Cadenza. I'm aware that in Brazil and in China our Cadenza comes with 17" aloy as standard equipment but not sure thou it is the same brake size.

I'm asking in order to save some extra $$ on winter tyres and buying better ones. Sounds a lot but I can save up to 100$ per tyre just by downsizing them!

Not sure if I have ever heard or seen a cadenza with 17" wheels. IMO i believe the 17" wheels will be too small for the car.

There is a screen shot from the Brazilian Kia website showing tire specs as standard equipment for the 2016 Cadenza sold out there.

Buy the way it is sold $50,000USD over there for what it seems to be the luxury package, it's a lot of money!!

Have you been to Tirerack.com? They usually have all those specs figured out when you put in your model car, and will sort wheels that will work for you.


I agree, for a winter set, if you can get away with 17's, and you may have better performance with the taller sidewall...I think you're on the right track for winter wheels, just don't go rice on us!

According to TireRack I can downside to 17" but their tire size is wrong showing results of 235/45R17 while 225/55R17 is the right tire size for the Cadenza with 17" tires (equals 19" and 18" equiped).

I live in Ontario and made up a set of winters. Used the 17 inch steel rims. Will have to check the tire size I used but I used the calculator to fine a match that was the very close to the 18's that came on the car. I away working till the weekend but I can check the tire size when I get home.

225/55r17 comes to mind but I will have to check. If I remember they are within .25% of the original size. Generally you want to stay with 3%

As long as the brakes/calipers fit it should be good shouldn't it? This is educational

As long as the calipers fit it's should be fine exactly, but it may differ from wheels to wheels depending on the thikness of the steel and the design of the wheels.

225/55R17 is exactly 0% diff with the 19"




Thanx flyboy441, it's good to know
