    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires

  2. Winter Tire and Wheel help

    2019+ Mazda 3 Wheels and Tires
    While I do love the looks of the 215/45/18 tires and 18X7 Charcoal color wheels that came on my AWD hatch, that's a pretty skinny sidewall for WV/PA Winter driving. I definitely want Michelin Ice-X snow tires, but not sure on wheels yet. I'm leaning towards aftermarket wheels, no TPMS sensors...
  3. Tire Pressure

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Found this thread on Reddit, and went to check the TPMS readout in my 3, which had been sitting covered overnight. Sure enough... 43 or 44 PSI on all 4 tires. I had mentioned in another thread that my accelerator had a lot of "feedback"/vibration after the rocker arm recall that wasn't there...

    Wheels / Tires
    I have a very stock 2010 Mazda 3 2.0L 5 speed. It's my daily driver so I'm not trying to do anything crazy. OEM size is a 205/55/16. It has the really ugly factory hub cap wheels. I want to put an 18 inch wheel on it. Probably 18x8.5 with a 225/40/18 tire. What kind of offset should I get...

  11. How much tire diameter off spec is OK

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I know the general rule of thumb is +-3% of dia or circumference is OK, but I'm wondering just how accurate that number is for this car. I've got a 2014 3i sport and want to upgrade the wheel/tire package for the summer. My current setup is the OEM 16" wheels with Conti PureContact 205/60's...

    Where do I find the size of my tire? How do I know what the speed rating is? These are just a couple of common questions we field from our customers and rightfully so.

    Hello everyone Whenever I'm pumping brakes on my '14 M3 hatch, I'm hearing this screaching sound coming from my rear left tire.
