Seems like all the discussion I've found involves plus-sizes.

Right away, I'm looking at some wheels for winter tires first, so width doesn't matter as long as it's under 7" and steelies are fine. I like the extra sidewall that a 15" wheel allows.

I understand that the previous generation 3 would fit wheels from other cars, if what fits on a google-able car (Like the 2004-2013) fits on the 14+ car, that makes things a lot easier, I just dont want to be surprised by finding out that something doesn't clear the brakes.

For my sticky tires:
Aluminum 15x6.5 with an offset of between 43.65mm and 50mm (SCCA HS Legal without narrowing the car's track width)

--

TL ; DR:
What have you found in 15" sizes that fit on a 2014 i-Sport?

Have you tried fitting 15" wheels on your Mazda3? I remember reading on another thread that the 15" would not fit on the 2014+ Mazda3. I plan on running 16x6.5" steelies for my winter set up.

I know they won't clear the Touring or GT brakes, my google-fu can't find confirmation on the base model.

I don't have a 3 yet, I'm waiting for the color combo that my wife wants to show up as available.

I'm just benchracing at this point.
