    Default Do 19" RX8 fit ona gen 2 Mazda 3 ?

    Hey Guys

    Has anyone installed 19" rims ( particularly RX8 R3 ) on a Gen 2 Mazda 3?
    Any clearance issue (if not lowered) and any issues if lowered?

    Thanks

    I have only seen a few 3's with 19" rims, non OEM. The high offset should work in your favour, still will be tight.

    If it's the Shinka silver or the brushed silver and there is no rash..it's a great price. If there is damage it's next to impossible to match the original colour.
    That said if you want Black, no sense in buying yet.

    Not sure regarding fitment on a Gen II, but imagine it would be close.

    Yup its that silver metallic color.
    Its the last thing i would do now go 19" and i would want bigger rotors and calipers too.
    I just replaced the OEM rotors ...I'll spend my Mazda play money on Cams and Cats ...
    But if see a deal...the backyard shed has space for some rims
