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.

The mazda rx8 is hard starting and not idling properly. How do u set the timing for the rotas. Do u have a diagram


there are no timing on the rotors for a wankel engine. The timing is controlled by a computer for the RX-8. The sensors & distributors can be adjusted on the RX7's & other Mazdas but I know that there were major engine changes to the RX-8 so I can't tell you for sure. I use to have an RX-7 and worked on it all the time.

Just google them. However get the specs on your present
rims, diameter, width, lug hole placement, etc. Usually
the mag mfg. or provider will know what mag rims fit your
car when you order.

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
