Need advice (:

So I finally have the money to put new wheels on my car and lower it (woohoo). I dont really have any experience with Mazda's so I need you guys help. In your opinion what are the best wheel specs for a flush look lowered on springs? preferably without having to roll the fenders but I will if i have to. Pics would be great(: thank you.

I've answered a few other people on here with just about the same exact question. I'm very biased, but I personally believe I have just about the most flush setup this car allows for. I'm not lowered, but I could go down probably an inch without issues - I just don't because I live where that's not a smart idea.

This is a really dope setup. I was kind of leaning towards 20s but I was worried about them looking to big when I lower it. Yours doesnt look bad though.

Thanks!

Have a look in here too: https://forum.mazda6club.com/wheels-...-requests.html

There's a link near the top with everything I've done so far so you can get a (pretty rough) idea of how different styles look on this car. There's also a huge thread on here where everyone's been posting their stuff for a while, so you can see different setups: https://forum.mazda6club.com/wheels-...ics-specs.html

Before lowering it be 100% sure that looks are more important to you than comfort.
Lowering it comes with a stiffer and bumpier ride.
I have a lowered SHO and hate the ride, but love how it handles and of course how it looks.
