  1. Is it OK to use tires with slightly lower profile

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Stock tires on my 3 are 60 series (205/60/16) but now that I’m getting new tires I’m considering getting 55 series tire. The current 60’s have a very tall sidewall, and am hoping for a bit crisper handling with the smaller sidewalk 55 series tires have. I expect with the 55’z having a slightly...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey guys, I've been looking to upgrade the halogen projector headlights in my 2015 Mazda 3 i Touring for some time now. I was deciding between 1) plug and play HIDs, 2) retrofit HID (more hard core), and 3) plug and play LEDs. A combination of factors led to my choice of plug and play LEDs: -...
  3. Changing low profile tires to something more cushy

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Wheels and Tires
    I live in one of the top POTHOLE ridden cities in the world (San Jose!) I would like to change my tires for something bigger/taller/softer on my 2006 mazda3 2.3. One tire company thought I could go from 205/50R17 to 225/50/17. Another said I could only go as large as 225/45/17 which, to my...
  4. Best Low Profile Ramps?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi - It won't be long before I change the oil in my 3. Can folks please recommend a good, safe set of ramps? I don't need to elevate the car much. oil changes are the only reason (for me) I need ramps for. Would low profile ramps such as ones that raise the front wheels between 3 - 4 inches...
  5. Best size for low profile tires?

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Wheels and Tires
    I'm considering 18inch wheels and a low profile tire set. I'm clueless as to what good tire brands are out there. I'm also clueless on the best measurements for an ideal 18inch wheel or even if 18 inches is too big (doesn't seem that way since the S trims come with 17 inch wheels). Any...

  8. Updating the Bluetooth AVRCP

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I tried to search for this but was unable to find anything about this specifically. I apologize for any redundancies. If I'm not mistaken the Mazda 3 supports version 1.0 which provides basic remote control commands (play/pause/stop, etc.). I'm trying to get the profile to version 1.3 which...
