  1. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Ive put 35k on my oem tires and can't find any higher mileage tire for this car. I drive 30k miles a year and don't want to buy a set every year. I've looked on tirerack for 215/45r18 and 225/45r18 and I am not impressed. Am I missing a decent tire?
  2. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hi to everyone. I need some advice regarding tyres for the Mazda 3. Will fitting a 225 or 235 on the standard 7 inch rim increase 0-100kph times? I figure more rubber on the road, less wheel spin from take off. How wide can we go with 7 inch rims? Any info much appreciated. Marc.

    I've been thinking over which one I should get, and I just can't decide. Wondered what everyone here thought of all the new colors and why they like it best. Maybe your discussion will help :P

    I am thinking of changing just the speakers. I am very dissatisfied with stock speakers. I looked at some DIYs and it seems like I can change the stock speakers by myself. I don't know about amps though. Here are my selections. I think they will fit in my 2012 i touring hatch (6 speaker unit)...

    The gauges dim when the headlights come on, but the gear selection (I.e. D, N, R, 1, 2, 3 etc) is still very bright. Is this normal? If so, what the hell were they thinking? :argh 1: Actually it was probably because the auto headlights come on before it's dark, and they didn't want people...
