Hey guys

I was planning on buying a set of either 18x8 or 18x18.5 black rims for my meteor gray mazda3 and havent really seen many pictures besides people with black/gunmetal Mazda OEM rims, so if you have a setup could you possibly post pictures so I can make sure they look tight and then Im ready to buy some I have been looking at :smile2:

You can also use tirerack's service to look at black colored wheels on your 3.
Although...choosing meteor gray color is woefully close to titanium flash on their site; quite indistinguishable I should say.

I have a Meteor Gray and plan on going with 19 x 8.5. My color choices are blue, white, bronze and lastly, gunmetal.

Check out the wheel and tire picture thread in this section and also the What did you do to your 2014+ Mazda 3 in the Discussion section. I have seen many Meteor Gray's with Black rims.

Here are a few I saw from another member. In a month or so I will post my pics. I plan on getting the Enkei TS9s in black.

Seeing blue rims on a meteor gray will definitely be interesting, post pics whenever you get it!

Also thanks for posting those pictures, it looks nice, I wanted to get something more like the TSW nurburgring but those wider spokes dont look half bad on that color. And i think i might consider getting a roof rack like that one, adds some personality to the car for sure

I blacked out the hubcaps on my steelies just to see how gray on black looked like before I went with gray on gray. Black wheels are always good though.

I really like the black wheels with the grey, does anyone have pics of meteor grey with colours like bronze or gold???? I was thinking of just dipping my oem 18s one of those colours

Here is mines with the Volks SE37 bronze 18s. Looking for drop springs that isn't more than 1 inches so please mind the ride height.

Since I wanted Blue rims and not planning on getting rims until '17, I plastidipped mine Blue. Looking at an Eibach, Road Magnet or H&R drop next summer.

I am strongly considering white wheels for my meteor gray hatch, I have the stock set blacked out for now until I come up with enough for wheels. I have spent enough with the other mods I have done and wheels will be the really big plunge.

I ended up getting Mazdaspeed3 Gen 1 wheels because I thought they look really good and they are only 18x7 width so probably wont lose too much gas mileage either

i havent installed them yet but i feel like theyll look pretty sick regular silver too

once i get the lowering springs and get it tinted I will probably plastidip the rims black

Do it! White would look so sexy. That's another color on my list!

What I'd like to get is a preowned set of 19" Mazda 6 GT wheels, and toss them onto my 3. You know, with the slightly grayed tint, almost gunmetal finish. Perhaps with a set of spacers as well. Would retain a nice, OE appearance. Wonder what it'd do to the already jouncy and unrefined ride quality though...
