Has anyone tried 3rd gen rx7 wheels on a 4th gen MZ3
Can I install them with 245/50/16 tires?There are two versions of the FD3S wheels available from the factory, both were 16x8 +50 - They'll fit fine, but I don't think anyone has put a set on their 3rd Gen yet.
Make sure that you look for the reinforced version, as the 1993 models were known to be fairly brittle (and also 13.8lbs!)
The re-inforced wheels have spokes that are about 2.25" wide right where they meet the outer edge.Can I install them with 245/50/16 tires?
Considering how light the mazda3 is I doubt they'll have too many issues.
How do you know if it's reinforced or not?
Awesome, and the other question on whether or not I can fit the 245 tires in there without rubbing. I'm keeping it stock height.The re-inforced wheels have spokes that are about 2.25" wide right where they meet the outer edge.
The non reinforced ones are about 2" wide where it meets the outer edge.
Not the best picture in the world but the wheel on the right hand side is the reenforced model -
You'll be fine with that setup. It's a little bit more "bulldog" than stock on the non sGT models.Awesome, and the other question on whether or not I can fit the 245 tires in there without rubbing. I'm keeping it stock height.
I have an SGT now. I am primarily looking for the purpose of moving away from the tiny sidewalls of the 18s while getting wider tires on it for better overall handling and getting increased mileage out of my tires with lower costs. The stock tire size runs at least 150-170 a tire installed. I can get 245/50/16s for at least 20 bucks a tire less and they last 10k longer. I've got the mazda body kit too so I assume it'll be an overall good design for it. Originally I was looking at the 17 inch RFP1 wheels.You'll be fine with that setup.

Should look pretty attractive, and you'll have some room if you do decide to change suspension components.
are the breaks the same size on your sedan as an sGT? I want to make sure that exact same wheel size won't touch my breaks.Just purchasing them. +45 would be the preferred to keep it moderate, without going crazy on camber or rear fender rolling.
At stock height, I would recommend a 245/40 or 255/40.
Should look pretty good. I threw a set of 17x9 +45 RPF1's on my sedan and was tempted to not remove them and give back to owner.
