    Default 2014 GT wheels on a second generation?

    Hey guys ive been thinking of getting a set of the 2014+ Mazda 3 GT wheels for my 2012 hatchback. Was wondering if anyone has done this already and has pictures of it. I would love to see how it looks.

    These are the ones im talking about:



    Thanks!

    Should work. Bolt pattern, center bore are the same. Dont think the offset is that much different.

    It works great. Fills up the wheel gap more. I have done it to my 2010 hatch

    the tires on the rim's for the 2014+ are the wrong size they are 45 and they should be 40 for the 2010-2013 model, have the wrong tire size could mess up the speedo or trany.

    Actually it would be fine. the 2014+ size is a 215/45R18 where as the previous generations MS3 used a 225/40R18. The increase of the aspect ratio is due to the decrease in tread width (MS3 are slightly wider for better grip/performance). The overall diameter of the 2 sizes are almost identical <3%, so it wont cause any issues with speedo or tranny.

    Consider 2nd gen MS3 wheels as well. IMO they look nicer. 2 Facebook groups worth mentioning: GTA Mazda Buy/Sell, GTA Wheels.

    I've got a set of gen2 rims if you want, curb rash is pretty bad but no bends or cracks. Looking for 250 for the set. Great if you want to refinish
