What would fit better? 225/35/19 or 215/35/19? Or something else? I'm looking to get Konig Unknown or whatever in a few months for summer.

Thanks

coilovers will solve those future problems...

Not with an 8.5 width. Even with an offset close to +55/60 it will be dang close fitment.

18s are big enough :D try and keep the max width to 8" and offset close between 50 and 55! you'll be ok! :)

You'll be rubbing like a zit prone teenager on a free pass to an x-rated movie, if you take the 19s!!

yeah, if you use the coilovers to jack the car UP a couple inches maybe

or maybe you could get a lift kit instead, mazda3 4x4 FTW!

Are you gonna get a wide body kit? :)

he'd need wide FENDERS, not a kit...a kit leaves the fenders intact and gives the wide look....or he has to get them rolled out....

19 x 8.5 are usually over 25lbs... youll be trading off alot of accellaration, mileage, performance, confort... pretty much everything for the bling bling...

for everyone who says coilovers are the solution, you are wrong.

coilovers dont raise your car any higher than stock and some coilovers at max height are still lower than stock. if you are thinking that you can adjust them day to day, you are wrong. adjusting coilovers is a long process and if not done right, will severly throw off the suspension dynamics of the car.

i had coilovers on my old car, adjusting them is not as pain free as you think it is.

what i did on my old car was notch the sleeves at 3 different levels.

daily driving, show/drag, and autox

as long as i got everything aligned properly for daily driving, i never had to get an alignment because the car was already set at those specs.
