    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Proud owner so far of a gray TOuring hatch Mazda 3. I must be getting old but the OE 18 tire size is rough. What can I get away with WITHOUT any rubbing? Even the inner black fender liner. Will 215 50 work or is it too rare or will 225 45 work to smooth out the ride. Thanks I’m looking at...

    So I am looking to get new tires before the winter. I know that 225/45/18 will fit without rubbing. Wondering if 235/45/18 will fit with no rub. Stock 18s and stock suspension. Thanks Don

    Hi guys I would like to know if this setup will rub on a 2014 Mazda 3 hatch with the stock suspension? I have a friend who run the same thing but with a 40mm offset and nothing rub. Do you think the 5mm offset will make it rub? Thank you guys Here is the setup of my friend with 40mm offset.

    Bilstein B6 and 225/40/18 PS4 tires Yesterday I rode in my Mazda3 luxury Blistein B6 shock absorbers and 225/40/18 Michelin PS4 tires, I've done a few kilometers after this change, and the sensations are initially very promising. I recommend it if you are in doubt.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hey y'all... So I had an accident (side swiped by an 18 wheeler) and need to replace a wheel and tire. Figured I'd make some lemonade out of lemons; pick up some wheels off Craigslist instead of getting another OEM steel wheel. The wheels I'm looking at are 18x8 with 50mm offset and tires are...

    Howzit! Looking to replace these crappy stock Dunlops with some Max Performance Summer tires, was also thinking of going up a little in width to 225s. Looking at Continental Extremecontact DW (only 22lbs!) I assume there will be no rubbing issues on the stock rims? Initially looking at the...
  13. 225/50/18 will it fit

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Just curious, it's looking like I'm going to be stuck with the stock 18s for a while longer and the car is too low anyways so I'm curious if the extra half inch will cause me issues other than less acceleration. The tires are cheaper and will be less prone to potholes.

  19. Which springs to use and how low to go using: 225/45/18

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I've been doing my research online and on several forums for lowering springs. I need a spring enough to minimize the gap and make the car look proper. I had 225/40/18 tires but they looked to "thin" so I went up to 225/45/18 and IMO the amount of tire ratio looks proportion to me. The...
