    Wheels - 16x6.5
    Tires - 205/55/16
    stock suspension (no plans to lower)

    I would like buy some new rims to make use of some old Eagle F1 tires that I have in storage ... 225/50/16 ... was running them on my '85 Firebird with 16x8 rims a few years back.

    I have found these which as far as I can tell are the only 16x7.5 rims available in Canada. Luckily I like them, but is the 40 offset going to be an issue?
    My wife will not tolerate clearance issues, this is her daily driver.

    If anyone has access to other 16x7.5 options I would love to see them.

    According to my limited research thus far, Mazda does not recommended exceeding 7.5" width on the rim (I have a lifetime warranty on the powertrain and don't want to give them any excuses) Should I be worried in that regard?

    Any thoughts / suggestions appreciated

    You will be fine for clearance, from another thread I read you can do...
    7.5 with a 25mm offset
    8" with a 35mm offset
    8.5" with a 38mm offset
    9.5 with a 42mm offset
    They claim these won't poke, and but you will be flush, so anything with a smaller offset, (higher number) you should be fine. The stock offset is somewhere around 50 I believe, you can enter your specs on willitfit.ca and it will tell you how much further your wheels will poke or not poke.

    Is 20x8.5 rims too much for a Gen2 Mazdaspeed3 ?

    Tires: 225/35.

    I currently have Bilstein B14 Coilover.

    Thanks for the reply, this search was temporarily suspended but I am back on the hunt. I did some more research with that 225/50/16 tire size and can definitely put them on 7" wide rims which REALLY helps with choice. Now I just need to make sure I get the right offset to keep them from rubbing.
    I don't suppose that other thread mentioned the recommended offset with a 7"?

    Went with VOSSEN CV3 19"x8.5 with a 32mm OFFSET + Tires 225/35R19.

    Rear tires are rubbing on the fender though.

    Are your fenders rolled? Looks like the back is flush if not just poking slightly

    No they are not. However It's not constantly rubbing though.
    I might get them rolled..

    Looking to get winter tires used, found a set of 4 at a really reasonable price but they're slightly off from the recommended size. I need a 205/55r16 while these are 205/60r16. Will they still work on a Mazda3?
