Hi guys, same as the topic, can anyone tell me all 4 of the answer?

smallest & the most narrow rims & tires is for the winter, and largest rims (widest & largest) & widest & largest tires for track or so.....

someone said MS3 can use a 16inch, but seems like the rotor & caliper is a tad larger than that already, so I really wonder.... (or they means regular mazda 3)


Thanks

I have also been wondering what the smallest wheel I can use would be. I can figure out the tire part since anything within reason will do.

OP, I would guess that the width of the widest rim you can use will depend on any suspension mods you may have. If any.

let say stock wise....

Because I definitely want to increase the width up to 245 to even 255 at summer, but winter, 195 is enough LOL

8.5" is the widest you can go without tearing apart your car. you can put a 245 on a 8.5, but if the car is lowered you will have an issue with rubbing.

uhhh 8.5 is not the widest you can go on this car. and a 245 will fit fine under the car. have you all forgot about offset? i've seen a 18x9.5 45off fit under this car. and it really depends on your offset on what you can fit. you can get an 18x8.5 with a 35 off to fit pretty well under this car with a 245 tire. if your lowered your gonna have to do a bit of fender rolling in the back to clear the tabs but thats about it. if you go with any offset thats lower your going to start having some major problems but the main issue is offset here and how flush and also how much camber you want to run.

can anyone can confirm 235 40 18 is perfectly OK on stock rims & suspension? (No lowering, rolling fenders, and so)


thanks
