  6. New member, roof rack questions

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hello M3 fans, I bought my mazda 3 GT hatchback in 2016 - it is a great car. My only wishes would be for a light turbo (don't need 300 HP, just a lower torque peak) and an upscale stereo option. This car won out for me over the VW GTI, and that is serious competition. I don't think the mazda...

    This question is asked before but I can't find one that answers my question. My 2017 Mazda3 GT Hatchback did not come with a roof rack and I'm in the market for one now. I'm not looking for anything heavy duty. I'll probably only be loading a paddle-board or skates on it. My priorities are...

  11. Tire Rack's recommendation tire size on 18x8 wheels.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Why do they recommend 215x45r18 (stock size) on every 18x8 wheels, at least the ones I looked at. That's a minimum size recommended for an 8" wheel and seems to be stretchy. I wonder if their recommendation based on the car or the wheels' size. Anyone has this combo can comment on the ride? Thx

  15. Non OEM Roof Rack

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Just wanted to check if people here have non OEM roof racks and how they like them. I don't particularly like the look of the OEM ones (~$300), even though they do seem to be much cheaper than non OEM options (~$500). I think roof racks with the crossbar going past the towers just look much...
