Has anyone swapped out the stock 18 inch rims for 17 or 16s? I hit a damn pothole and either bent a rim or messed up the tire. I'm looking at getting more sidewall. Can't keep buying rims.

I don’t get why Mazda3, intended to be among the sportiests cars in its segment, 60 series tires! Sure, they will soak up bumps better, but the 3 isn’t meant to be a cruiser.
Would it be okay to put 55 series tires on when I replace the stock ones? Anyone else done this? Do they look awkwardy...
I have a 2017 GT and I've procured a set of Gen 1 17" wheels (free) for my winter set. I'm interested if anyone has run a 215/55-17 for their winters. The selection for 205/55 is very limited (perhaps due to time of year?) and 215/55 has a better selection. I would rather not run the 215/50...
I figured it would be an obvious answer considering the 18 inch wheels have low profile tires but the 18 inch set up weighs 10 pounds more than the stock 16 inch set up. Do some actually prefer the 16's?
I have four Michelin X-Ice XI3 (205/60 R16) tires for sale mounted on 16 inch Mazda3 wheels (from a 2014 to 2016 Mazda3).
The XI3 is currently rated as the number 1 studless winter tire from Consumer Reports. This is about as good as it gets in this category.
The tires were used for two...
I just got a Mazda 3 and I like the way everything looks except for the steel wheels and I'm looking to upgrade them soon, if you are looking to sell your 18 inch factory wheels pm me. I'm located in Texas and would be willing to pay for shipping on them.
Hi I just lowered my M3S and got a good deal on 20" from my brother. Only one problem is when we put them on, the rear left wheel was grinding with the arm that connect to the wheel base. Will 5mm spacer help with this issue? I notice not many people put 20" on M3 but it looks so nice with big...
I need to buy new tires this weekend, since my stock 18 inch Dunlops only lasted me 10,000 miles. I was pretty bummed that I'm already having to invest money in new tires, especially only having the car for about 6 months. Not sure if lowering my car caused the fast wear, or if the manual...
I want to buy new rims for my Mazda 3 GS 2014. I got a white one and need to buy new rims for it. Take note that my car is lower. Around 1.7 Inch all around with Road Magnet.
I'm looking for one of those 3..

I want black rims..
I just purchased a new Mazda 3 and I'm putting 18 inch wheels under it.. I was wondering if anyone knew how much the wheels and tires tend to sell for.. They have 2000 miles on them and are in perfect condition..
70$ insignia tablet with bluetooth makes a perfect Lil add on to run torque in my car. Mounted on a magnetic base mount makes for nice clean install. Also have cd slot magnetic mount for phone and run my android car app with that, just couldn't get phone in pic since I use it for pics lol.
Is there much of a difference in ride quality between 16 and 18 inch tires? The variant I want is only available on 18 inch wheels and I can't test drive it to compare with the 16 inch variant. Have any of you tried both sizes?
