Looking to get some xxr 530 wheels for my 2014 mazda 3 i GT hatchback. Got some spare 215/45/17 kumho tires so looking to get 17" wheels. I have looked online and they have them in 17x7 +35, 17x8.25 +25, and 17x8.25 +35.

I have seen pictures of a gen 3 hatch with the 17x7 and it didnt look concave enough or maybe its just me. I really like to concave look so Im guessing the 17x8.25 will definitely show it more. Will the 17x8.25 +25 even fit? If not Ill go with the 17x8.25 +35.

I dont plan on dropping it or rolling/pulling fenders, everything is stock as of now. Saw some pictures on page 51 on the showcasing wheels thread, a white gen 3 sedan running on xxr 530 18x7.5 +38 on stock suspensions and fenders. I actually like that look, though some of you may say its ugly, too much gap, doesnt look right, etc.

Im guessing with the 17x8.25 is gonna poke out a bit? Some people here are running 8.5"+ wide wheels and it looks flush or still in the fender, but maybe theyre rolled/pulled fenders? Im thinking the 215/45 tires will be stretched just a little? Will the stock lug nuts bolt up to these aftermarket wheels?

Any thoughts and opinion guys?

Here's a pic of these wheels(17x8) on my Mazda 6. They are little concave...maybe more on wider versions.

How did you get them in silver, did you paint them? I know they only have them in flat black, chromium black, and gold.

Man your 530d 215/45 on 18x9 are super wide and super stretched. What tire size are you running on the 530 17x8 or are they 17x8.25 and what's the offset for both those wheels?

I like the 530 on your Mazda 6, looks nice. Thanks for the pictures.

Do you have any pictures of the silver 530s on your Mazda 3 hatch? Also are you using stock lug nuts?

The color on my Mazda 6 is " chromium black" i thought they would be darker but i was wrong... You're right, they are 17x8.25" +35 offset wheels. The tire size was 215/50/17.
Thanks!
