My mazda3

Just toying with some ideas for next summer. I am tired of my 18" ms3 wheels and want to try something different.



Most likely 18x7.5 +42 with a 2.5" lip. They have wider sizes with more aggressive offsets but the lip is smaller on them.

On here


Picking colored wheels to go on a dark red car is hard but I am determined to rock something other than black, gunmetal, or silver. My 17" wheels are all painted now and awaiting tires. Teaser here.

If no one has done a PS for you Ill do one up for ya when I get back from the store. I like these rims better than the ones you painted...the ones you painted are a good design but the blue doesn't work with the red(ish) color you got goin on. Car looks sick slammed though! I'm sure you hear this all the time but TINT THAT BITCH!

Yeah it needs tint but I keep spending money on other things. Maybe in the spring.

I think those wheels would look pretty good though. Especially if I can get another 1/2" lower on them and get them flush with the fenders.

Spring or Summer is best for doing tint. 1/2 in lower and more flush!?! Your gonna need some small stretched tires or some camber action.

I think I will but I have to wait till spring. Gonna go with 18x8.5 +35's. I figure if I am going to do it I might as well be aggressive about it...

They will fit almost the same as evoX wheels. They are 18x8.5 +38 so I will poke 3mm more than this.



I'll have a hair more poke in the front because speed3's have 10mm wider fenders but I think I will be able to pull 8.5's off just fine. I might go with a slightly stretched 215/40/18 on them too just to make sure clearance works out. The picture above is on 225/40/19's by the way.

That will look good! I hate to say it but those rims looks awesome on that car! Don't know if that counts for fluorescent colored rims but I like.

That color is a little too bright for my plans but thanks for the PS anyway Ian.

I wouldn't mind picking up a set of evoX wheels though. They are sick.

Actually, someone should fit some on an mx6. They would look pretty awesome I suspect.

the blue color doesn't match the red well so it appears a little strange
