What's the widest width we can run on these cars? I have 2016 Mazda 6 and planned to run Bc coils but today talking with local shop he says I probably can't go over 20x9 on my wheels. I want a concave look so I need 10.5 width to get the look I want. He said with coils probably not but with lowering springs I probably can. Anyone got advice or different opinions?

Check out threads/comments from @JITB and @Hoyta. I'm pretty sure they have both run 20x10.5 on coils.

No spacer bro. I just went with a 20x9 wheel. Front too is flush. I'm hoping they won't rub the fenders when I put on the coils.
With 245/40r20 at et35 you'll get some rub in the front. @kylekap19 has the same setup and he had to roll the front fenders a bit and remove some of the liner. If the coils come with camber plates or you add them yourself, then you may be able to get by without rubbing.

I currently have 245/45r19's (same size) on et35 wheels and had a lot of rubbing in the front, but it actually hasn't rubbed since I changed out the shocks for Koni FSD's.

Awesome, finally somebody with Ace Alloy Convex in 20x9! Can you take a shot down the side so the flushness front and rear is more evident?

If your coilovers don't come with adjustable camber you can get SPC adjustable camber bolts. One set doesn't do very much for people. I still need to inquire with SPC if you can run two sets and stay safe at the joint.

Thanks for the advise bro. Tires are 245/40 r 20's. Are BC Racing coils come with camber plates? Do I need to roll the fenders if I only want an inch drop?

Thanks bro. Not satisfied with the tires, I should have gotten 245/35 r20.

Nah, 255 gives you the right overall diameter, keeps the wheels and tires from looking small, ESPECIALLY when you have an aero kit. Not to mention it is the perfect fit width for a 9" wheel.

I would buy two sets of the SPC ez cam bolts from the tire rack for $50 and crank them to the max for negative camber. Due to the location of the bolts vertically along the strut's axis, not only will it bring in the top of the wheel it will bring in the middle a bit too, so the whole front will come in helping with the poke.

Also something that makes or breaks flushness is simply having the same amount front and rear. So on the rear don't be afraid to add a 5mm spacer to the rear so it matches the fronts if you don't quite get there with the camber bolts.

The camber bolts and 5mm rear spacers will also improve the handling of the car noticeably.

Thanks for the photos by the way.

And the BC Racing coilovers come in two varieties, one with camber plates and one without. Make sure you get the right one.
