  3. NRG lug nuts steel series 700

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    So I bought a set of the NRG steel series 700 lug nuts for my 2011 mazda 3. I've had them on for maybe 5 months and have already stripped 4 wheel studs because of them. Took them to the shop and they noticed that the cause was the lug nuts itself. Anyone else have issues with NRG? I'm planning...

Does it matter...

    I bought the Mazda M011 rims from my dealer this summer and had them do the installation as well. I have been driving around with them for a couple of months and today I was at Costco putting winter tires onto my stock OEM rims and the technician said I've been using the wrong lug nuts on the...
  6. Stock or aftermarket lug nuts for 2nd gen Mazdaspeed 3 wheels?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    My friend might be able to score me a set of 2nd gen Speed3 wheels. I do want to confirm though; will my stock lug nuts on my 2016 iTouring fit on Speed3 wheels? Or will I need aftermarket lugs? Usually stock wheels have acorn seating, so I'm assuming it'll fit, but it would also be nice to...

  10. 2007 versus 2017 wheel lug pattern

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Wheels and Tires
    We have some 2007 OE Mazda-3 16" Alloy rims that we put snow/Winter tires on. We are getting ready to purchase a new 2017 Mazda-3 Hatchback with 16" alloy rims. Will the 2007 rims mount on the 2017 vehicle? Will the 2007 tire-pressure units on those rims cause any issues when installed on the...

  12. Thing to consider when picking out lug nuts

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    In my quest for quality lug nuts I found these 32906UN - BURNED BLUE - MUTEKI SR48 OPEN END: 12X1.5*| Mackin Industries, Inc Just not sure if this is the general price range for quality steel lug nuts or not. I assume that if I upgrade to a different set of wheels later these will still fit?
  13. What is the lug nut size?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hey everyone. I Have a huge problem and Im trying to figure out the best way to tackle it.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    This past weekend, my wheel lock key broke off in the wheel lock. I tried my best to get the broken key piece out of the lock but was unsuccessful doing so. It is really jammed up in there. While I have a new key coming to me from McGard, I still need to find a way to get this wheel lock off...

  19. lug nut torque specs?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    How much should I torque my Mazda 3S GT 18" wheels? I watched a mechanic at my dealership torque my lug nuts with a torque wrench today and I asked him how much torque he used. He said 102 ft-lbs(!). That seems pretty high to me. Is 102 the correct torque spec for our 2014/2015 Mazda 3 18"...
  20. Advice: Use a 21mm socket for lug nuts (winter tires)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Just a word of advice, so hopefully nobody else goes through what I went through today to change to winter tires. I bought a new set off Tire Rack and it came with lug nuts and a 13/16" socket with which to remove and install the lug nuts. Don't use the socket. Stick with the standard 21mm...
