    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...

    My UK Mazda 3 has a short flap protruding down in front of the front wheel. What is its purpose being installed in front of the wheel (see photo)? It is sometimes a nuisance since it can catch on a steep speed hump. I might remove it if it serves no useful purpose.
