    Default New to the MPS world!

    hey guys,

    Names Thai, joined because my girlfriend and I have just bought a Mazda 3 MPS GEN I.

    its Aurora Blue and stock as a rock besides some disgusting wheels the previous owner had put on there. I'll try get some photo's up when I can.

    Just joined up to be able to get some opinions and knowledge about the MPS as I have been a Honda boy all my life.

    Plans I have for the MPS are; DG full under spoiler kit, some new JDM wheels and either a set of coilovers or a good shock and spring combo.

    Don't want to do any performance modifications as I want to keep the car as stock as possible.

    Just some quick questions I have about wheels and suspension.

    What is a SAFE size and offset / tyre combination? Can I go +35 or lower without scrubbing?

    I was thinking of a Koni Yellow + Eibach pro kit spring combination, what do you guys reckon?

    Thanks in advance for the help you guys will be giving me in the near future!

    Regards,
    Thai.

    Welcome Thai....

    Nice of you to join us in enjoying the MPS3

    Your questions are not uncommon. Check out the tyres and suspension section and there's plenty of info there to get you started.

    I see that you are in Victoria - there are a few regular events and get yourself in our SMS list so we can let you know when the next event is. Come and join us and get to know us and your car.

    Hey Thai, welcome. Lots of discussion about that kind of offset. I'm not qualified so make sure you search the forum under offset and see how much pops up.

    Lots of friendly advice given here.

    Bring on the pics of the scanky wheels?
