Default MB Wheels Weapon 17X8

Hey guys, just wanted some quick advice as Im about to buy these wheels. And wanted to know your opinion regarding fitment, I don't wanna fudge this up.

I called discount tire to check up on MB Wheels Weapon, 17X8 5X114.3 offset 42, they say it would fit, but that it was an aggressive setup. Im running on stock suspension and want to run 235/45/17 tires or should i go safer and buy 225/50/17 . Do you guys think it will rub?

Is anyone running the same setup?

I thank you guys for your time, patience and knowledge!

Should fit. This will help... Tire and Wheel Calculator

Curious why you are going to a 17? Especially with a stock ride height? Your going to have almost an inch more of sidewall. Could lead to higher tire roll feel...

Im going with 17" because road quality down here stinks, so ride comfort will be better and besides tires are cheaper

Do you think they will rub? I really don't want to roll my fenders

These are the exact wheels i run for AutoX. 17x8 and i run 255 width tires. No fitment issues with stock suspension. when i lowered the car i had some slight rubbing(all because of tire width) from the rear wheel, and i just needed to add some negative camber in the rear. I like the rim had them since last spring, they are lighter than the stock wheels even with the big tire.

They look really great, 255 (thats a huuuuuge bitch ), do gen 2 ms3s have the same clearance as gen 1s? Lucky number 13, looks very nice!

I can't say exactly but i know that stock the gen2 wheels are .5" wider. but i don't think the body is bigger. If i had gone with a more narrow tire i wouldn't have had any clearance issues at all.

Im a bit scared that it will rub. My problem is that Im from Mexico and will go to Texas to buy the wheels n tires so if it doesnt fit Im screwed. 235 would be great but if it is risking it I will go for 225s.

I'm planning on getting the same wheels after the winter. I'm going to run them as DD and use them in Autox since I'll be running STX. It's good to know you can fit 255's on them with no problem.

I know of one guy on here that was running 17x8 RPF1's +32 with a 245/45 and he only rubbed with a lot of weight in the back

Even lowered it should take 235 like a champ. Like i said at stock height/camber i had no problems with clearance @255. Even with the trunk was loaded so you shouldn't have to worry. When/if you lower the car just make sure you properly adjust the camber and you'll be fine.

Im pretty sure gen1 ms3s have less clearance, Ive been reading the "Will This Fit??" Thread on mazdaspeeders and on similar cases they say it will rub. Maybe I should go with 225.

Gen1 front and rear track are 60.4"/60" wide, with a 69" width body. The Gen2's has the exact same measurements. So even though the body and tire size changed nothing else should have changed with clearance. So if 255's fit, with no rolling a only a degree or so of negative camber in the rear on a lowered car. 235 would leave more than enough space on a stock or lowered height vehicle. Also stock 225's look skinny on gen2's 7.5" rims, so i can only image how'd they be with on a 8" rim.

Reviving an old thread here....I don't have PM rights yet....

RacerX78 - I'm looking into the same setup on a Gen 1. What offset are your wheels? And did you need a fender roll?

Appreciate your feedback.
