I have been skimming through threads over at www.mazda3forums.com
. It's a site not unlike this one focusing on the Mazda3 sedans and hatchbacks. My GF has an '05 3 sedan and I'm considering looking for a hatch to replace truckzilla. I've been reading up on issues people have had and interesting mods folks are doing.. and I came across this:
Read the quote in the first post.. I like it because it's quite amusing. Basically he describes why very large wheels are actually a very bad idea. In the process he pokes some fun at the 'bling-bling' types going for very large wheels. I love the sense of humor.. Reminds me of Dave and Julie from ORR.
My impression is that anything above 17" isn't really a very good idea unless you're only after apearance. If you're after performance 16 or 17" seems to be the sweet spot.
