I currently have rota grids but not in the size you're looking at. I have them in 17x9 25 offset 245/45/17 tires. I may eventually invest on TE37 later on. I would trip out more getting scratches if I was on volks.Considering some new rims. Love the TE37's but don't have 3k to spend. The t
Rota grid look nice and the offset +44 in a 18x8.5 is tempting. Does anyone have these. I know rota is a rep but also saw avid av06. Gotta get tires soon so thought it would be a good time.
From what I read, it also depends on your tire size. I’m not sure how low does your springs lower your car from stock position but that is something to take in account.Well considering I have read multiple post what would you all recommend? 17" or 18"
I have the stock 16" on. It is a daily so I do t want to decrease the comfort too much. Do you all think a 17x8 +35offset would fit with eibach LS and no fender roll?
i would say it might be a good idea to roll your fenders if you’re considering 18’s. Just to be on the safe side. My 17’s are comfy af. I do wish they’re 18’s but I don’t think it would fit and will ride as good. Coming from running 45 sized tires, I would even go 50’s in my next set of tires.Yea I figured 224/40 seems reasonable. I saw a picture of av6 18x8 with 225/40 and states no rubbing or fender roll. I'm just double checking to see if anyone has good pictures or can confirm. The eibach is actually very mild ~1-1.2in all around. I also want to talk about comfort and noise. I mean I know mazda 3 are not quite, but for long road trips I would like to keep the increase to a minimum.
That should be okay. 17x9 +35 will likely rub with a load and on dipsAlright so I think I found a decent set up. 18x8 +42 and a 225/45 tire. Do you guys think it would rub on a 1in drop mz3? I would go with 17 but they only have +35 for 17x9. Which I think is way too wide. Trying to avoid rolling fenders if possible.
What size/width/offset is that? It doesn’t say that on the screen shot. Are you sure you it doesn’t come in that size? I know a vendor that sold me my wheels and they have a pretty good selection of sizes.This is what I'm going for. Unfortunately they don't make this size and offset in bronze. So I figured I can powder coat them later.
There’s a lot of companies that make TE style wheels in bronze. Have you looked at avid or aodhan?This is what I'm going for. Unfortunately they don't make this size and offset in bronze. So I figured I can powder coat them later.
Odd. I think 18x8 +35 fits better anyway. Mild rolling of the rear fenders would clear that easily, especially with only a 1” drop. Less cost/hassle then powder coating wheels.The pic is the avid ones. They only make the bronze in 18x8 +35.
