I think anything bigger then 18 on this car would look out of place.....if I sell enough mattresses I am gonna do a set of 18" Work Emotion CR Kai wheels this summer.

Color me an old fuddy-duddy, but I think that car looks much worse than the stock 3S with 17" wheels.

That's some avatar you've got there ATL. How big is that thing?

Here's a pic from another forum. He put 19s on his 3
what's the other forum? if you put 19" on your car can you still use all-season tires? or do you have to use summer tires? I already think the ride on the 3 is a bit noisy and can get a little rough with 17"'s. can't imagine what it's like with 19"s.

I totally agree! I don't like all these titanium, charcoal whatever colored rims. The stock 17's and the RX-8 18" rims look great on the Mazda3

Those look like 19s to me. I guess you didn't realize that the wheel gap is dependent on the suspension and not on the size of the wheel. How old are you if you don't mind me asking?

I'm willing to bet my left nut that it is not a photoshopped picture. You will have no difficulty in fitting 19" rims to the Mazda 3 as long as you don't try to go too wide and your offset is correct. If I remember correctly, those wheels have +45 offset and you can tell in the front that the tires are sticking out of the fenders just a little bit. I believe as long as you get wheels no wider than 7.5in with an offset of +48, you should be ok.

But I'll say again, the large wheelgap is a result of the suspension being too high and not the wheels you pick for your car because the diameter of the tire should be the same as or close to stock.

Finally, if you do a search for the Kenstyle Mazda 3, you will see it's got 19" rims also (or was it 20"?).... The reason you don't have the wheelgap on that car is because it is lowered.

what do you think??? (silver)[/url]
I seriously hope you are not paying those prices for 18" Volks. There are other places that will deal with you on Volks for wheel packages and tires as well. Shop around!
