    Anyone know the diameter and thread pitch on the nuts used with these? I’m looking into mil-spec distorted thread locking nuts to replace them with. Tired of these coming loose and clunking/popping on the slightest suspension compression on either side.

  13. Winter 16" wheel specs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I'm thinking I'll have to get a set of winter wheels and tires for my '15 S-GT and will go with 205/60-16s on alloy wheels. On the previous car I used steel wheels, but dealing with the added weight and especially the wheel covers got to be a huge PITA. Anyway, looking at what's available, I'm...
  14. Alignment Specs After Drop

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I was worried about my alignment because after I lowered my 2005 3, I never got an alignment and stupidly replaced my tires every 10k miles. I've had my Corksport springs installed for about 3k miles and they feel settled, lower, and a little bit rougher. I went to a place called Express Tire...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    How much should I torque my Mazda 3S GT 18" wheels? I watched a mechanic at my dealership torque my lug nuts with a torque wrench today and I asked him how much torque he used. He said 102 ft-lbs(!). That seems pretty high to me. Is 102 the correct torque spec for our 2014/2015 Mazda 3 18"...
