The answer is no. You could try with tire dimension 30, but I highly discourage you to do so.

Adding 20" rims will significantly reduce the driving quality of your car. Stick to the original 18" rims and you will be fine. Do not put the looks above the driving quality of your RX-8, because the driving quality is what your RX-8 is all about.

Here are some reasons not to do it:

1. Your car will crawl... Acceleration is much worse.
2. It will immensely increase the wear of your shock absorbers.
3. It will give you real hard rides you will have neck and back problems.
4. Cornering will be really dangerous instead of fun.
5. The tires will be much more expensive.

Hope this helps.

I have a 2003 Mazda6i with 75,000 miles on it and i'm getting ready to have a brake job done new pads and rotors turned. Wanting to know what would be the best pads for my Vehicle. the pads I have now...

Yes the ceramic ones will make less of a mess on your rims, but won't provide the same stopping power. They will still work good just not as good the cheap brake pads make a mess because they are a soft compound witch breaks down under use and turns to black dust.

Will 20 inch rims with low profile rims fit on a 1994 es 300 and run good without ant problems.

As long as manufactures recommended height is maintained it shouldn't matter but if it's not than than this could affect your speedo and also make sure you have enough clearance for the turning movement.Alocal tyre or mags place should be able to calculate which size is recommended for you vehicle.

Fiat Spider wide rims

Check the clearance with your current tires. Turn your wheels as far as they will go and measure the gap between the rim and frame. Then measure the inside offset from your regular rims and subtract that from the inside offset on the mags.Compare that to the gap between your current rim and frame. If it is the same or bigger, the new rims will likely hit.
The best way to know for sure is to mount one rim and turn the wheel and see what happens. Hope this helps.

2009 mazda6 has no spare wheel

go to your local wrecker and get them to match some thing up as it doesn't have to come of a Mazda (most early Mazda only had 4 stud rims)

other option is to go to a Tyre retailer and get a cheep mag wheel and a cheep Tyre fitted if it is only a spare it dosn't have to look good
