    Throwing this up for reference if anyone cares. My buddy had his corner weight scale so we decided to weigh my 2015 SGT hb auto. I was surprised by the even weight between the left and right.

  11. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I had a question for people that have lowered their car on springs, have more aggressive fitting wheels, and how they account for rubbing... both when they're solo driving, then when they have a full car or a heavy item in the trunk? I want to either get a 18x8 +35 in the future, or short term I...

    So this weekend I had my wheels off and I noticed these things glued onto my rims and I had no clue what they were. I went to a tire shop and they told me they were weights. Wtf.. Why would anyone want to add extra weight. So, naturally, I removed them. To do this, go grab a knife or...

    I have a set of snowflake rims for winter tires and need to replace one. I'm looking at one on eBay (I'm currently the high bidder) and noticed in a photo that there appears to be a wheel weight attached to the back side of the rim. I have contacted the seller and he emailed me the photos below...
