No rub at all but it is extremely close to the fender arch. The tire has a curved sidewall which helps a lot
Nice...on the BM/BN 8.5 et35 will definitely rub w/o tirewall stretch, fender roll or more negative camber. It helps a lot that BPs come w/ factory-rolled rear fenders.

Quick question guys, has anybody run a staggered set up by offset/wheel width on an AWD? Thinking of going 18x8.5 +35 in the rear and 18x8 +40 in the front (both would have same tires maybe 225/45).

Very nice wheels all! First post lol.

Just got my 19 hatch in White and I'm torn between a 18x8 35 offset vs 18x8.5 35 offset. Anyone have pictures of how much poke 18x8.5 35 offset gives? Much appreciated
If you go on fitment industries people have uploaded pictures of their hatch with different sizes and offsets

18x8.5 45 in the front and 38 in the rear - stock suspension

I always liked these wheels on my Mazda6, so I kept them for my winter tires. Using 25mm BLOX Sport spacers (highly recommend, worth the money). As a bonus, they will clear the Corksport BBK. Now I'm looking for some high offset 18s for my summer rubber. I don't really want aftermarket wheels as they always have some sort of compromise in the bolt hole area that causes headaches. I haven't found any Mazda6 18s that I like. The MS6 wheels aren't my taste, and later M6s all had 17s or 19s. The '10-13 18x7 MS3 wheels are nice, but hard to find in decent condition north of the border. Seems like everyone that drove a MS3 dragged them on every curb they could find...
