General Wheel and tire fitment
So winter is almost at an end now and its time to go find a pair of wheel for myMazda!
Now I'm a complete noob when it comes to that
I woulf like to know what specs I could run on 18in. And without roling the fenders!
Any help would be appreciated!
I'm at stock height and I have a 06 mazda 6i!
I would like the wheel to fill the fender but not rub!

Nothing will fill the fenders without a drop, which you'd need a roll (at least in the rears depending on specs) for.
Most people go with 18x7.5 or 18x8 for the typical aftermarket wheel. Once you start getting up into the 18x8.5 and 9 then you start getting close to the tolerances. Anything past that width is asking for trouble.
The higher your offset the less chance of rubbing you run.
And the wider tires, the more chance to rub as well, but wider tires certainly do improve handling noticeably.
