I LOVE IT.
Its not for everyone, but that is kind of the point. Only thing I would like to see is the front end lowered a bit more and then it would be sick!!!

haha yea thanks guys. i know i cant expect everyone to like it but i like it and thats all that matters.

the BC's are all the way down WITH perches taken out. so its as low as its going to go with all BC equipment. BUT ive been talking to this guy about some replacement springs sooo. next plan is to buy some shorter, stiffer springs to replace the bc ones. itll be super slammed possibly the lowest ms3 evarrr. its going at least an inch lower all around. lol i want to achieve the chassis height when i was on the 17's w/ rubberband tires but on the 18's. scrapping belly everywhere and getting stuck on speed bumps lol.

strtnyne - the tires might be 215's but they fit wide. more like a 225. and im extra careful when things are around my lips of the wheels. accidentally curbed my last wheels. it wasnt even that bad. it was like an inch of light curb but i was still super angry about it.

thanks again madvillain!

Fagwagon - lol i would say its barely a rub. only slightly rubs on big bumps. and on hard transfers of weight.

Joeylow - exactly my point! i was tired of seeing the same old wheels on every single dang ms3. not everyone might like my car but at least its unique. boo to the monotony of wheel choices on ms3's. lol care to leak what kind of wheels youre looking at?

The stance on it isn't bad, at least it's not chulo pokin'. I never liked those wheels, well I don't like tri-spoke wheels in general. But it's moderately nice.

I ran a stance setup on my 240sx. The stretched tires are definitely NOT a performance enhancement, to whomever said they get good grip. Stretching tires is only functional in the "it will fit" perspective. Most of the drifter guys liked stretched tires because you can break traction alot easier, since there is essentially no 'bubble/balloon' effect in the tire, esp if you run a higher air pressure. Was surely nice for sliding, but not a grip setup.

Anywho, it looks good and there will always be some haters. I came up with the term fitmint, because I always associated hellaflush with those trendy kids from CA who thought they were ahead of the curve all the time. :roll:

I do like that 3 up there with the 9" wide +40 RPF1s.

agreed... seems like alot of speed owners just paint parts and paint stock wheels need more people to buck up cash and effort to get slammed speeds cause they look awesome.. i also understand some just dont like real low cars and or track theres which is cool to

well, let me start by saying that i def. give you props for going in a different direction than most people with your speed. Now... 215 on a 9.5 inch wheel in my personal and professional opinion (Manager for Discount Tire) is stupid. The first time you hit some dip in the road or a patch of repaved ashphalt, wheels are bent. Heaven forbid you hit a pothole on a stretched tire like that on that wheel, not only do you have a tire that will break the bead and go flat, but you may also have a crack in your wheel, because there's not enough sidewall to protect it. As long as you're aware of said conditions, and you still decide that's what you want to do, then props. I think you're an idiot, but props...

i dont know what is wrong with some of the people in the mazda3/speed 3 community, people always have to hate. Little do they realize they are behind the time. Id love to see black-speed3-gt's ride.
Lets see it fool!!! Lets see those awesome sunken battle ships your rocking! I bet your car looks like a damn hover craft. Stop hating, especially on something that actually looks different than every other stock looking speed 3 with removed side moldings and painted badges. People like sumthaiguy are pushing the limits of fitment on our cars and making this community more interesting and making our cars more in line with the fitment in EVERY OTHER CAR COMMUNITY!!! Sorry u cant afford to have nice fitment! If u cant respect it then GTFO! Go lurk around and make douche-bag comments in the highest offset possible wheel threads.

Problem is, this (your post) isn't an opinion. You are posting as if an expert of the matter. People run stretched all the time, my wifes ride is slightly stretched and we have by far the worse roads anywhere. And she couldn't avoid a pot hole if there was a sign saying there is a pothole ahead. And hundreds of people on forums run insane stretches and the issues you speak just do not happen often at all.
Opinion is, I don't like the look.

CeeeJay did you have to roll your fenders at all to run that rim/tire setup and also are you rubbing at all? I have always loved the rpf1's and im thinking about doing the exact setup when I get the funds

Fronts were not necessary to roll but I did do the rears.

dang ive neglected this thread. o well new setup is almost done so a new thread is coming. but ill answer some things that i havent addressed.

lol well first off, since youre a manger at DT, you should know that federals run 1 size wider than true to size. so it fits like a 225. still not to spec but wider than 215. and even though you work at discount, i doubt you have the experience to know what it takes to run a stretched tire and the consequences of it because discount never pushes any kind of limits at all. the only way you could get that experience is first hand, by actually going stretched and driving on it. tons of people in my city run stretched. hell they drift on stretched. and the rate of failure is slim. it takes a hell of a stretch and a stupid mechanic that doesnt put enough pressure in it to break beads. i know what it takes and the possible consequences of doing so. people have been stretching for a long time. and theres a safe way to do it. im not saying there arent consequences but there are precautions. im just saying that its not as dangerous as people put it out to be. you gotta keep your pressures up and pay attention to your driving. i know what im doing and plus mine is only a moderate stretch so im confident that ill run out of tread before something happens.

the ride is almost the same from what i noticed. a little rougher due to higher psi and increased sidewall rigidity. its the same amount of contact from the tire as a regular setup.

first of all, the ONLY thing I would have done differently is not stretch the rubber so much, but thats just personal. Other than that, looks great man!! Clean, nice, etc.

And don't apologise for the photography. That all looks great. Maybe let the dude in the minivan pass by before you snap the shutter, but other than that, really nice. Excellent composition on some, and good/really good on others, nice exposure, cool location, nice lighting. Some magazine quality shots there.
