2007 MPS - Smaller wheels ?
« on: November 10, 2011, 08:24:05 PM »
Has anyone tried fitting smaller wheels on their Mazda 3 MPS ?

I have a 2007 model & fancy trying it with maybe a 16 or 17" rim along with tyres that have a higher sidewall to soften it up a little.

Cheers

Are you sure they'd fit over the larger brakes that the MPS has?

17" may fit with the right off set but i reckon you might struggle at 16".  but its only a guess.
