Looking to purchase a set of new wheels for my 2015 Mazda 3 along with beefier tires for the summer time. Looking into 18x9 or 18x9.5 by +35 offset. And for the tires, 225 40 R18. Would 9.5 width fit? I heard that at 8.5 the fender must be rolled. I want to go as wide as possible, also want it to poke a little. I need all the help and advice I could get. Tips appreciated. Thank you my JDM dudes.

Those will stick out by QUITE a lot. Are you lowered?

http://mazda3revolution.com/forums/...heel-tire-picture-thread-103.html#post1723185 thats with 18x8.5 +38 234/40/18

Edit: Limit for no-rolled fender seems to be 8.5 offset +45 / 8.0 offset +35
Lowered on CorkSport springs. What’s the biggest tire width that would fit on my ride? I’d like a new feel on the road and a more aggressive look. I’ll definitely go with 18’s though, just hoping a 9 or 9.5 inch width fits the car.

225s won't fit properly on rims that wide.
You'll need to at least roll / pull to get 9 or 9.5 inch rims to fit.

Seems like you’ll have to roll your fenders if you want to go 9 or even 9.5, especially you are lowered on CS. I’ve 18x8.5+50 wheels with 225/45r18 tires and eibach pro kit on my car.
