full credit for a) doing something that I haven't seen yet with that size wheel on a MS3, and b) the post with all the pictures from every angle.

I really like the look of the gold wheels on a black car. the tires bulging past the fenders is too aggressive for my taste but if you can work out a way to flare out the fenders a little it will be completely badass. no idea how you do it and I'm sure it's expensive. i do think that the car needs wider tires. improves the look dramatically.

I actually like the overall look of this but I think I woul have went with the hyper black color myself. The wheel gap looks good overall.

haha i would have loved to get the steel grey, but they weren't in stock, and werent going to be. my only choice was dark dark grey, which is basically black and black with a red lip, and gold. i like the gold a lot more than i thought i would, i don't think its too "blingy"

I like the gold and black look. If there was some way to flare the fenders out, those wheels would be perfect, IMO.

i like it! i'm not a fan of bronze, but i like the golds!

i've been eyeing the rota SVN's for a while, i really would love to rock the 18x9 +30 they offer, but i want them in matte/flat black and those only come in the bigger sizes i think. i could do silver, but the black would look good on my silver speed 3. that, or i'm looking at a polished/chrome version of something, like work S1, xd9, etc. something with a lip.


the rear stance looks just like my 240 did, i was running some 10" wide wheels with low offset. after i raised it up some to help with ride comfort, the rears stuck out like that, but it grows on you, and a little camber helps.

and fyi, i was running 225's on a 9" wide rim (BFG TA KDW) and they didn't look bad at all, but i think certain models of tires will run wide or run narrow. the 225s i had from BFG probably were almost a 235. i've all but given up on my racing days, so i'll take the aesthetic look for now...and keep the spare set for when i head to sebring or need a 'proper' setup.

i think if you get the alignment settings right, it will look pretty sweet. i'm having visions in my head of a silver ms3 dropped on a set of flat black 18x9 +30 with 235s. throw on a DG lip (left black/unpainted), and a roof rack, and call it a day. maybe smoke the rear 'flectors.

Do you think that a higher offset, like a 40 (18x8)would still have that concave look?

depends on the wheel. most wheels i know don't start getting concave til you're in the 30 and under offset area. my old wheels were only concave in 9 inch wide, if you got 15mm offset, and 10 inch wide wouldn't be concave unless you got the 12mm offset. (it was a rwd stagger)

okay so question...

every 3mm is = .25"

& i know u can fit a 18x9 w/ a 45mm offset in the rear of the 3.. no probs really... i did it on my mazda3.. + i had a pro-kit on it.. & only had to roll n pull alil...

So by my calculations.. u coulda shoved a 18x9(30et) in the front & a 18x10(45et)in the rear.... Both wheels would have stuck out about the same.... the rear wheels would only be in about .25" more then the fronts.. but know1 would really be able to tell unless u bought something w a SICK rear lip on it... heh..

I mean just to give u a heads up... so yeah...

It would look really really dope!

U could have gone wider in the rear & still achieved the same look that u have now... well.. it would be a wider wheel in the rear.. but you know what im saying...
-----------

TRUST i know what im talking about... heh

====================

U also said your rubbing in the rear...
what is yoru current set up...

i might be able to get it to stop... I had NO RUB in my car.. w/ a 18x9 in the rear of my 3...

Thanks for answering my question!!! Ordering my 18x9" Buddyclub P1 racing II Plus's today. They are a 38 offset so shouldn't quite stick out that far. But your car is sick!!! I wish I knew how to use a damn computer to show you my SCCA Solo Class 1 Mazdaspeed Miata. But I love my Speed 3!!!

You'd be nuts to put at 10" wheel on the back of the MS6. What a waste of money. Stick with 8-8.5" rears for practical applications. 9" looks awesome, but isn't what I'd use for DDing.
