I put on 265/60R18 on some 13+ gen coupe wheels and slapped them onto the Santa Fe...

Kenda Klever A/T - they have a noticeable hum to them. Rides fairly smoothly. The rear is fairly stable now when taking a corner and hitting a bump/divot in the road while doing so. Used to kind of shuffle/stutter/move side to side back there whenever that happens - even with the H&R springs. I'm thinking the wide tires helped.

This setup is 30.5" it barely fits under the front strut but it rubs the wheel liner up front and back when doing a 3/4 to full turn. To fix this I simply moved the wheel lining forward a bit and cut some of the trim on the back. My phone died so I didn't get the pictures.

Anyways, I like it. Looks aggressive enough for me and adds a bit of a lift too - I kind of have to hop up to get into the car now.

To fix the rubbing on the front liner I removed the tabs and just pushed the liner forward.

The rear of the wheel well still rubs... I did however remove the tab that sticks in from the trim. That helped a bit when doing full turns but still rubs the liner. I haven't checked but I believe there is metal behind the liner. It's getting too cold now so I'll probably check in the spring.
