Default Mitsubishi Evolution 8 Enkei Wheels

Just figured I would share my Cosmic Blue Gen 1 MS3 with Evo 8 Enkei Wheels. They do bolt right up, but I needed to buy "Mag" 12x1.5 style lugs, with a flat base vs a coned base, I'll link below what I went with. In addition, on stock suspension I still rubbed insatiably bad in the rear, so rolled my fenders and now I only get rub over serious bumps only because I have so much suspension travel. Other than that, I got a set of 235/45/17 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500's and am super pleased with how they grip. I overall think the wheels look fantastic on my car! I plan to get them properly powder coated this winter, I peeled all the plasti-dip off since the picture and the stock color really does look amazing imo.

Nice wheels.

Man those rust spots piss me off on the quarter.. Literally every mazda 3 rusts in that spot.

I'm thinking about picking up a new cx-5 but I don't trust mazdas rust protection at all.

2005 Mazda 3 SP23: mods include rusty quarter panels and grinding 3rd gear. It does have a fusion motor, so I guess that's a mod too.

Thanks buddy! And you're not alone lmao. It literally eats away at my soul. I live in Ohio and it's straight up hell for these cars out here. I don't drive my speed in the winter. Have plans to get the body fixed up, but it'll be pretty pricey as you may imagine, lol!
