Rim fitting.

Soo I have a Mazda 2004 6s. I recently got new rims. Love them. But having issues with them rubbing when having more than 2 passengers in the car. They are 177.5 with a 43 offset. Anyone else have these same or close to same measurements? Issues as well? I don't want to have to roll. But I want to keep these rims. Decisions decicions... Look at them.

You just need to roll the rear fenders. The offset is much lower than OEM so the wheels are pushed farther out from the center of the vehicle.

I would say you could make that wheel work with a good tire combo as per wheel/tire guide here, but since you already have tires on and ARE rubbing your only choice is rolling your fenders.. unless you wanna shell out for new tires..


following the wheel/tire guide thread here i was able to get a setup that does not rub even being lowered.
