Evening all,

We've got a 2013 Mazda 6 Touring sedan. I need to replace the rubber soon and was thinking of putting a nice set of alloys and tyres on it. I'm leaning towards the Avant Garde M310 19" x 8.5" rims with 235/35/19 rubber. Will there be any issues with fitting this combo? Bolt pattern is compatible. A friend has 4 x Bridgestone RE050A at 235/35/19 with about 70% left in them. Would these be ok on these rims?

Thanks,
Dave

Can't address the width fitment, but man, that is one short sidewall.
If you're more than 35 years old, I'd worry about kidney damage unless you're driving on the smoothest of roads. You'll probably feel the impact from crossing the painted stripes on the road.

- Just a personal opinion from someone more than 35 years old and surrounded by roads with lots of cracks, frost heaves, patches, and potholes. I'm about ready to go to a 245/75R14 just for a smooth ride! ;-)

(Yes, I realize Australia probably doesn't have frost and ice issues, but I don't know your road quality. I believe paving standards have declined since the popularity of light trucks and SUVs.)

You can find good fitment info at www.tirerack.com and probably other sites. In brief, tire width (235 mm or 9.25 inches) will probably be better on a 9 - 9.5 inch rim.

In the USA, 19inch wheels and tires seem to have limited options and high prices.

What are the sizes of the tires and rims you're running now? What is the offset of the Avant Garde Rims?

Stock offset is +45 - as long as the rims are not less than +35 you should be fine. I wouldn't want them more than +45

The 235/35/19 will make for a firm ride. Handling will be very good but as mentioned above it will be a firm/stiff ride.

FYI, this thread is a year and a half old. I would assume that the point is now moot.
