18x7.5 with +42 offset will be good or not?
The stock 17" wheels are too narrow to support the size tires you want to put on them (225/45r17).Wheel specs (diameter, width, and offset): OEM 2004-2006 Mazda 3 GT 17s
Tire specs (e.g. 225/40/18): 225/45/17
Suspension (shocks/struts brand, spring brand, or coilover specs): Stock
Fenders rolled/pulled already? No
If not... willing to roll/pull your fenders? No
Additional details (camber settings, intended use, other issues, etc... optional): Stock, Daily Driver, May lower it a bit at some point, but nothing too outrageous
I don't have these rims or tires yet, just the stock GS-Sky 16s that came with the car. I'm just wondering if the recommended 17" upgrade size will fit the wheels as specified above? Thank you!

Using some online offset calculator ( after I ordered ) I see the tire will come out a additional 20mm, will that cause rub ?
The diameter from factory ( 205/50R17 ) and the new tire is identical, the offset is the only change.
I've ordered new 12x1.5 Gorilla lugs and TPMS sensors, tires are coming mounted and balance, hopefully plug and play.
Was he on stock springs and everything? And does he still run on them or did he not like them and get something else? How rough was the ride?
