RX8 wheels on Gen2 (2012+) Mazda5


2013 MazdaSpeed 3
Hi Guys,

I've searched the Mazda5 threads and was unable to find much on the Gen2 MZ5 wheel fitment. With the 18x8 size (+50 offset) and 225/40/18 tires would there be any rubbing issues? Also, I don't plan to lower the car any time soon, however, that may change depending on the fitment. Any feedback is appreciated!

Yes, they totally do! I just want make sure the noted set up won't cause rubbing of the tires. Anyone?
I always refer to this site for questions like this. Wheel Offset Calculator
It seems that with 225 width and +50 offset, the tire will be about 1/3 inch closer to suspension and almost 1/2 inch closer to the fender. Overall tire height delta is practically negligible. Seems like you could be OK. It has been done before by others. It will depend on how loaded your car is and how you drive :) I hope this helps.
