What (US) trim 3.3s come with 18" wheels?

The new configurator trim comparison doesn't mention 18" wheels on any of the 3.3s.
I thought this was correct, but can anyone verify:
18" all seasons: Elite, Prestige, Design (limited edition)
19: summers: Advanced, Sport, Dynamic (limited edition).

Yep. 3.3t all three; Elite, prestige and Design, comes with 18's 225/45R18 all season tires.

I was visiting the dealer today and happened to see them and took pictures of their window stickers.

Same applies for the Stinger. The theory is that if you are buying AWD you want all weather capability, hence all season tires. If you buy RWD, you are in warmer climes or are performance focused and get the 19's.

As a generalization, maybe this is half right.

The downside of the 18' s in the Stinger, and I don't know if it is the case for the G70, is that the vehicle is speed limited to 130 mph.

The attached window stickers are not for Sports. The Sport package includes Pilot Sport 4S tires, for both RWD and AWD, I would guess.

So, to refine the hypothesis, for Sport AWD, 19" summer, for Elite and Prestige AWD, 18" all season.

That's correct but you can add the 3.3T Advance AWD and the special edition Design AWD to the 18" list. The ones with 19" are all 3.3T RWD, the Sport and the special edition Dynamic AWD and RWD

I have a 3.3T AWD Prestige on order and wish I could get the 19" wheels on the Dynamic and RWD. The 18's are not only smaller but more spokes and looks worse I think. I don't care for the 19" almost black wheels either. I'm going to look to get the 19" wheels online somewhere once I get my car and sell the 18's. Or I'm hoping to see if someone has some aftermarket 19's that look even better. Anyone think 20"s will work? As more of these get bought you know someone is going to through 20" wheels on this car! :) I really wish Genesis would let us pick and choose what wheels to put on our cars when we ordered.
