Wheels: 18 x 8 OZ Ultraleggera (Black Painted)
Offset: +48 mm
Tires: 215/45/R18 Bridgestone Potenza RE-11
Front: Basically flush with fender. Recedes in about 3 mm, which just clears the front fender.
Back: Recedes in about 10 mm, which just clears the back fender.
Wheel Review: The wheels are super light at only 18.4 lbs per wheel. However, the black painted finish is not glossy, it's more of a matte finish, which doesn't match the black glossy paint of the car :/
I would recommend getting a glossy finish wheel to match the glossy paint of the car.
Tire Review: The tires are pretty heavy at 26 lbs per tire. I would recommend getting Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires because the performance is similar, the tread life is twice as much, and they are 4 lbs lighter per tire.
For those with new models 2014 and after. After doing my homework and taking measurements, installed 19'' wheels!
Am I the first to go 19''? Looks like it!!! only one regret... the wheels are not entirely silver, the front is liquid silver which looks kind of chrome. chrome looks cheap!
Privat Weiden 19'' wheels (about$700 on amazon)
Pattern: 5x4.5 (114.3)
Hub: 73.1 (installed hub ring 67.1ID/73.1OD)
Tire: Goodrich 225/40/19
Next step will be to lower it by 1 inch. So far, it does not rub!
Who can tell what coil springs fit?
H&R people don't have it and some Tein claims it fits earlier models??
I am looking for a quiet tire, and on my gti I had Bridgestone RE760 and the Continental extreme contact. I have dedicated winter tires (x-ice) but have been reading a lot of conflicting reviews between which is quieter between grand touring all season, grand touring summer, and max performance...
I'll need to replace the tires on my 2016 sTouring 5-door sometime this year.
I think I've narrowed it down to the Michelin AS3+ and the Continental DWS06. From what I've read I'm pretty sure I would prefer the driving dynamics of the Michelin but comments about a dip in mpg (I've read from -2...
Jet Black 2018 Mazda 3 hatch.
Thinking of getting Enkei PF05 in dark silver 18x8 and matching them up with Michelin PS4s in 225/45/18.
I'm dropped on H&R springs 45mm (1.77 in) front / 30mm (1.17 in) rear.
Helpful input would be appreciated. TIA :)
