Hey all, just wanted to double check. Once the snow clears, I have a set of the Corksport coilovers that are going on. I'm going to be purchasing a set of TSW Nurburgings 18X8.5 5-114.3 45MGM (Mazdaspeed 3) and new summers tires to go with them. I'd just like to get some tire size recommendations and I'd also like to know if i'm going to need to roll my fenders when I decide to drop it. Please let me know, it'd be much appreciated.

225-255 tires although 235/245 will fit/look best. Fender work has a lot of variables, (camber, drop, tire stretch, etc.)
I was going to do the same set-up on my regular 3 but its on hold.

Decided to go with 18x8.5 +45 and a 245 tire. I'm debating tire now and originally wanted to go with the Hankook R-S3's but I've been reading mixed reviews about them through tirerack. I've also been looking at Michelin Pilot Supersports but apparently the sidewalls are rather sensitive with those. Anybody have any brand recommendations/

Ended up going Continental DW's, got a good deal on them and I've heard great things about them. My wallet feels a bit better too. Now for the ultimate question, will it rub on CS coils with minimal adjustment to camber? Probably about 5 clicks in the front and 7 in the back.
