    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I need to change the tires on my 2011 Mazda 3s GT and I have a few questions: - Is it OK if I upgrade to 215/50R17? (currently my car has 205/50R17). I just like wider tires. No other reason for that. Will there be any negative impact on handling? I don't want to spend a lot on tires like...

  9. Rain Sensing Wipers

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have noticed that the sensitivity control (the plus + minus - dial) for rain sensing wipers seems to have little to no effect on the wiper rate. This has been especially true in misty conditions. What has your experience been with this feature?
