Wheels: ALT Meka&#39;s from Heronew&#39;s Group Buy, 18.7.5 +42 20lbs 73mm hub bore
Tires: Kumho Ecsta SPT 225/40/18
Springs: Racing Beat
Fenders: Rolled, hell yeah rolled because the first time I didn&#39;t roll enough of them and rubbed like hell over some bumps. Not fun. Roll them all the way down the side towards the front of the car if you do it, that part will get snagged even though it looks like they won&#39;t.

Fender are not rolled, no rubbing. Did some aggressive mountain driving and etc, still no rubbing. I still plan on rolling the fenders just in case but I&#39;ve checked and monitored quite a bit so far. I will update if anything changes.

These wheels are 18x8" Volk Racing Kuwagata&#39;s with a +42mm offset. The tires are Nitto NT555&#39;s P225/40ZR18&#39;s. I have not had any issues with the wheels rubbing, however the car is not lowered. If I did lower it aggressively I almost guarantee there to be rubbing issues if the fenders were not rolled. The wheels are extremely light compared to the stock wheels and they handle better than the stock wheel and tire combo.

Finally!

-18x7.5 Axis Reverb
-Kumho ASX All season smoother, quieter ride compared to stock Mi&#39;shit&#39;lins
-Offset: +42
-Stock springs
-Didn&#39;t roll the fenders yet
-No rubbing so far, I even tried a few quick cornering. Never tried driving with 5 people in the car yet.

[attachmentid=13804] [attachmentid=13803] [attachmentid=13828]

Can&#39;t even peeled out anymore with these kumho ASX tires.

ADR 18X7.5 +48 offset wrapped by KUMO SPT&#39;s 18/40/225
thanks to all for the assistance from the form on the tire selection. I could never go back to the stock tires now.
On the issue of rubbing: None what so ever but car is at stock ride height. Will Fender roll before lowering to be safe.

For me nothing compares to the overall quality of a BMW M3 on a nice senic curvy road. My Mazda 6 ,although I love it so, is just one more stop on the road to NIRVANA granted by the blessed souls of the Bavarian Motor Works company.
