Hi there. These are some pics of my "New" 2017 Mazda 3 Touring Hatch:

282585


The rims are RTX® - VERTEX Black with Machined Red Face (18" x 8", 5x114.3 Bolt Pattern, 73.1mm Hub) . The window tint is 345%. I added the rear spoiler myself. (Fairly easy to do if you follow the enclosed directions) and the sunroof deflector is from a Ford Fusion, circa 2009 that I bought off of E-Bay for about $35. I have really grown to love my car. It didn't have Sirius Satellite and I didn't want to add a bulky Sirius receiver so I got Android car play and connect to Sirius through my Phone. Not great but it works. I commute 110 miles per day so I become quite comfortable (Literally) driving this car.

Hi There. The tire size is 215/45/18. I got the spoiler extension from BAM Wholesale www.bamwholesaleparts.com
It was about $306 and fairly easy to install. All the necessary parts and fasteners come with. They give you explicit directions and some templates for drilling holes in the Mazda Spoiler. You need a 7/8" or 22 mm hole saw but that's about $10 at your local Hardware/Big Box Store. It took me about an hour to install it.

@JohnnyT
Can you share the link where you got exactly those tires? Is that a simple replacement of stock tires or do you need any spacers? Was it also a direct transfer of the stock TPMS?

hello There. Sorry I am so late in replying. I bought the tires from CARiD.com - Auto Parts & Accessories | Car, Truck, SUV, Jeep The tires were basically a stock replacement of 18 Inch tires, 215/45/18. They replaced the Hankook VENTUS V2 CONCEPT2. The Continental DSW are hands down 100% better when driving through a downpour. I did NOT have to replace TPMS. Apparently (Somebody double check me), I do not need TPMS for the 2017 Mazda 3. The car has sensors in the wheel hub that detects the air pressure in the tires. You just need to reset the TPMS when you add air, replace or rotate your tires. I also did not need spacers. The rims are 8 inch wide with a 40mm offset and as you can see, they barely fit flush (7 & 1/2 Inch rims would probably been better) but even my wife likes the way the car looks and that is DEFINATELY saying something. 😄

Just picked this up for 6k a couple months ago. Put some Mazda 6 wheels and tinted is all I’ve done so far. Gonna drop it an inch or so in the near future and go from there. Fun little car for the price!

Some ideas I’m planning to flesh out with my painter/fabricator/body specialist.
Making canards/splitters/winglets out of polished sheet metal. Still concepting the shape. Thanks for looking. 🙏
