Hey guys,

I'm thinking of getting new wheels (everything pretty much stock) and don't want something too flashy or different regarding my Black Mica 2.0 Sedan. Any thoughts regarding these Alleggerita's? I also thought about going with the Matte Graphite Silver, both links posted below. Anything would help. Thanks!

OZ makes great wheels.

What size are you gonna get?

That's another thing I was gonna ask. I'm such a car noob I don't really know what size is proper. I know I'm gonna end up getting some springs for a drop, so I want a size that will be good. I thought about 17s. Any recommendations?

Anthracite for sure! 18's if you can afford it, with a Pro-Kit drop, would set it off real nicely, especially with the Black Mica, the metallic flakes off the Antracite would go with the metallic off the Black wickedly.

Yeah, I know someone with an Acura with mugen rims similar to the anthracite. I would have never thought of it with the Black, but seeing it on the car made it look really sleek, which is why I liked it. 18's seem like the natural way to go, especially if I'm gonna drop it. Thanks for the input.

1.) Cool wheels, but holy crap @ price.
2.) I kinda like 17's on our cars.

Haha, price isn't really an issue. I know 17's are more OEM looking, kinda low profile. I'm wondering if anyone has them on other cars, so I can see how they look (I don't really care for TireRack's Insta-photoshop feature)

There more I look at Anthracite, the more I like it.

One more, thing, seems like for Mazda3's, it's only makes 18x7 and 18x7.5 available.

... assuming it's an offset/fitment thing, but keep in mind you can always go with coil overs and rolled fenders and stuff a wider wheel in.

But I think they're ugly and over priced myself. :p
