  1. Lug nuts for 16in steelies

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I have the 16in steelies with hub caps on my 2014 i sport. I am going to repaint the steelies since they have rust and are faided. The lug nuts that are on there are ugly and I would like to know which aftermarket lug nuts would work on steelies? Acorn, conical or other? I don't have the...
  2. Steelies to alloy need new lugnuts?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I bought a 2018 with steel wheels and have sourced some used 2014 alloys. I called the dealer and they wanted $16 per lugnut lol. The fellow said that I could use the same lugnuts but appearance wise it would not be great. Does anyone know what lugnuts I need for 16 inch alloy rims? Do I...

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    Hey everyone! I bought a set of steelies from someone a while back for snow tire mounting, but later got a job as a teacher. What that means is whenever it snows, I don't have to drive. These things are just taking up space in my shop. $200 o.b.o Got the TPMS and stock hubcaps for each...

  6. replacement for 2014 i-sport OEM 16" steelies?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hi, there. Just bought a 2014 M3 i-sport hb and would like to swap out the clunky OEM 16" steel wheels with something else. Mostly hoping to improve on (in order of priority): -weight (and thus better mileage and more power) -aesthetics After reading a lot on the forum, seems like a lot of...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I have a 14 liquid silver mazda 3 and really like the white steelie wheel look. Is there any way somebody can photoshop some white steelies on a 14 m3 and drop the suspension a little? I'd appreciate it a bunch, i have wheel covers on my car and am thinking of putting corksport springs along...

  9. Gathered some info on OEM steelies

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    NOTE before reading, I've made assumptions and my measurements aren't exact. Also, I did this out of curiosity. I may have a lot of incorrect information and overall this may be worthless, but none the less I wanted to see if the information would help me in deciding what wheels to get. I kind...

  13. Moving From Steelies to Alloys

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hi, I have a 2010 on Steelies. I got some 17" Alloys from a 2012. I took them to get replaced and they said that the lugs don't fit. Mazda says they have different style lug nuts. Any help here? I have the stock lugs that came with the car. And on Mazda's website, there is only one size. Can...
  14. 16" Mazda winter Steelies needed mod to fit 2010 MS3

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Thought I'd share my experience of having 16 inch "Mazda" branded steelies not fitting my 2010 MS3. I got 'em used in mint cond from an old gent who had a regular Mazda 3. I had read at least three threads (and saw pics too) that said 16's would "just "clear the front MS3 calipers. Well, they...
  15. WTB stock 16" steelies

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    Looking for stock 16" steel wheels (found in iSV and iSport models), wheels must be in good shape, tires I don't care about. Decided to throw my winter wheels on separate wheels this winter. Looking for local pickup in New England, shipping would be expensive. PM me if you got some!
