  1. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hi everyone, I just took delivery of a new 2017 2.5 touring manual 5 door. So far I love it, but it’s a commuter (100 miles/day) and the roads around here are pretty rough mountain driving. I’m not in love with the factory 18” wheel/tire combination, noisy and a little rough, and they look...

    I'm looking into wheels and want to go wide enough without rubbing or have any issues. For sake of this situation, let's say I get my fenders rolled and I'm lowered on Eibach or maybe even H&R height. What would be the maximum size wheel and tires that would fit? I don't want any rubbing since...

    I've heard a lot about tire swaps so I was wondering: I have the 2016 Mazda 3 i-Sport so are new, larger tires worth it? What would they actually do? How much would they run me?

    I have a 2016 i Sport Hatchback and am looking to get Enkei RPF1's. Can you confirm that these fitments will perform well without rubbing?

    I placed an order for a wheel and tire package at treaddepot.com 3 weeks ago. Last Thursday the wheel manager told me my package would ship that day or the day after and he would send tracking numbers. He never did. I called them up and basically put me on hold for 30 min while they "looked...

    Hi, new 2014 sGT Hatch owner in New England. I’m looking to get a winter wheel/tire setup and want to minimize both the three season and winter wheel/tire weight for MPG and performance reasons, without going real expensive or fragile. Since I already have the OEM 18” wheels, that will be one...

    Hey guys i'm trying to buy wheels from someone (18x9 ssr d5r) and he was going to include tires with them (205/40/18 ) for $1000 total for everything. Now he wants to take $100 off and give me 2 of the first type of tire and 2 215/35/18 tires. I told him I wanted to do the first option and pay...

    Hey everyone. I just picked up a set of Enkei EKM3's 18" with Yokohama 225/45R18 tires. They seem to be not even 1/4" bigger than the stock 16" w/ 205 tires. For some reason my speedometer is traveling up pretty slow when I accelerate and slow when braking. I'm not sure whether this also...

    I've got a 2012 iGT coming in a few days with the ugly ass 16's. I currently have a 2010 sGT and the dealer said i could keep the current sGT wheels as long as i let him keep the iGT's. The real problem is the tires (kuhmo Ecsta LX Platinum) on the sGT are about a year old. Do you guys think i...

    I posted in the wheel and tire section, but not sure if anyone looks there: So i took my car to the dealer for an oil change and tire rotate and balance..... They asked why i wanted the balance and i told the guy i felt a slight vibration sometimes it could be the pavement, but I have 13K...
