    Default 2014 Mazda 3 GT.. winter tire size help

    Hello!

    Looking at options for winter tires.. Stock on my car is 215/45r/18. Iíve seen a few posts about 205/60/16, and honestly with the price difference, I like the sounds of that size. Wondering if I run those, will my tpms light stay on? How much will my speedometer be off? 17Ē rim would be fine too, just not sure how to appropriately adjust tire size. Would love some shared experience or suggestions! Thank you

    Go with 16's, speedometer will be off slightly. Tpms will.likely stay on.

    At the dealer I was very surprised the 16s fit. Our GT doesn't have TPMS though

    We didnt purchase them. But calling your local Mazda parts dealer will tell you. The packages they're giving out for the stock tire are all 16 inch.

    I use the tiresize.com site and it does gives you the compatible sizes.. U just have to know your wheel diameter.. I believe mazda 3s are 25".. I would suggest to go on 205/60/16.. Thats what im using coming from 215/45/18 on summer.. odometer is very slightly off

    I was comparing a few sizes, trying to find the closest to original on the offset section.. found 215/55/16 to be closest I think. Guess I could really go with either then? Had no idea there were so many options for size.

    I've been using that size exclusively for years with my snows, the speedo difference is negligible.
