whats the biggest rim have you seen mounted on a mazda 2 and still look good? they come stock with 15" rims. do you think i can fit 18" rims on it? i dont want to overdo it but i also want big rims with it.

18's will fit but I agree with MazdaLove. It wont look right if you put 18's on a car that small. 17's will look really good on that. Plus the bigger the rim the harder it is for your car to accelerate and also stopping distance is increased.

I vote 17s. Don't make your car look goofy, but if you like 18s I'm sure you would be able to go with those. Maybe someone can photoshop a set of rims on the car.

I would even say 17's are too big. A wider variety of widths and offsets is available in 15" and a 4x100 bolt pattern.

From a functional perspective, sticking with 15" wheels will offer far more benefits than using anything larger. You want to go wide, not larger diameter. 205/50/15 mounted on some 15x7.5 or 15x8 would be my choice of upgraded wheels+rubber in my 2.

Of course, if you are only going after the baller look, then by all means, stick a bling bling 19" in there if you can.

I work @ tire shop and the best fitment is 17" wheel and 215/45-17 tire but 18"s work with 215/35-18 tire but that's paper thin. I have powder coated Mazda wheels that where OE on 05 Miata (last year for 4-lug) Racinghart edition five spoke and z rated michelin hxmxm4 tires. Only the best ! For me this works great very smooth and sticky. For some reason aftermarket wheels are hard to find the correct offset so I went this route. Oh by the way my Mazda5 has black CX7 wheels with 225/45-18 same tire Zoom-Zoom!
