  1. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hey all. I'm thinking about switching from the OEM 16" wheels to a set of 17" wheels. Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm looking primarily for a better look yet still practical (economic/handling-wise should be comparable to OEM, does not need to be better).

    I need to replace the spark plugs and was curious what everyone recommended in terms of performance and reliability? I'm told these cars are very specific.

    I want to update my tired shifter knob with a new or low mile A/T from either a newer 3 or other model Mazda. Will it be compatible? What do I need to look for? Are there any differences between trims?

    I've searched far and wide but haven't found a good response to this yet. I have a 2012 5-door w/ Bose, but I'm looking for a better overall sound quality. The car is a lease so I don't want to spend $$$$$ on amps, so I'm just looking to replace the front component speakers (2 ohms). Has...

    I know you guys are intake oriented, but anyone running just a panel filter? I have had various brands in other cars, and really liked an old HKS intake that I had on a Honda, so I thought I might try one of these. $39 + shipping.
