    So I've been really looking at some Rota Grid 17x9 +42 in Sports Bronze. I've seen people run 18x9.5 +38 with 225/40/18 tires. My biggest concerns is it only going to take a fender roll (possible pull), if I want to run this set-up...Yes I know that that the set up is actually not as tall as...

    I need to change the tires on my 2011 Mazda 3s GT and I have a few questions: - Is it OK if I upgrade to 215/50R17? (currently my car has 205/50R17). I just like wider tires. No other reason for that. Will there be any negative impact on handling? I don't want to spend a lot on tires like...

    I just recently picked up an 11 Mazda 3s Sport 2.5. I'm coming from a 6 speed VW and the clutch in this Mazda seems so much different, is it normal? I find the clutch pedal very stiff and the engagement range is sooooo wide. Like it starts engaging about 1" off the floor then there's about...

    I'm preparing to purchase new wheels. My current setup is 19x8.5 +35 front and 19x9.5 +42 rear. My question(s)... is anyone running 9.5 wide wheels in the front (no matter what size 16-19)? If so, are there any rubbing issues? Finally, what is your offset? Feel free to throw in any ride quality...

    Alrighty my ms3 peeps, so I have learned that the shop I went to, that installed my DP a while back, put a 1st gen Denso primary o2 sensor. They stripped the original sensor, they tried their best to not strip it but it happened. I had them order me a new sensor right away cuz I just couldn't be...

    So last night I noticed the Volume nob on my commander switched seemed shorter than it usually was, a few minutes later I noticed that the favorites button and back button were Sunk into the Trim panel that they stick out of... :taz: I had taken apart the panel with the cup holders recently so...

    I picked up a double din android tun21a deck for my 2010mz3 and it's standard sizing however the scosche kit I also ordered is WAY too small. The deck is 7x4in. Anyone else run into this and try the metra? Could someone with the Metra maybe measure it? For anyone who thinks of the scosche in...

    I don't own a Speed3 but figured that you guys would like to see this build. All I can say is...Damn. That's what it should look like from factory. I'm not a fan of the wide black vinyl by the fog lights though. Air bags for lowering this car? Or do they make coil over kits to lower this much...
  13. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Saw in the other thread that 18x8.5 is "too wide" for the SkyActiv 3... Nah, 18x9.5 +45 is where it's at! Crunching the numbers with Collins C. at D2 Technik we're pretty sure that fundamentally, these wheels will fit the car just fine with 5mm spacers up front and nothing needed in the rear...
  14. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hey guys so I thought I'd make a thread about aggressive wheel/tire fitments on our cars. I know there haven't been very many posts about it and we haven't seen too many members with too aggressive of setups, but hopefully this thread will open up the gates and generate some interest amongst our...
