I appreciate it, I know it’s not for everyone, but really feel the CX3 was under utilized platform., but I’ll take it and see hat far I can go with it.
Should have a few more minor add ins soon!

Looks good! Nice contrast too. What size/type are the wheels and tires?

I think the figment is mice, ride is obviously a little more firm over the factory 16”, but cruise and city, it hold well and I have a bit more confidence when getting into a turn.

Now that youíve run them for a while, would you go again with 245s? Or go with something smaller like 235, 225?
Reason being is that I just ordered my summer rims and am teetering with the tire width lol. Would be good to get some input for those that went wider.
Your rims look like Pearl Konig Oversteers is that correct?

So far, I am pleased with the 245’s, really for my set up and what my long term goal(s) are, I’ll stick with the 245 unless I bag it, it which case I’ll only consider due to figment issues... but I would recommend the tire size for those considering an 18”wheel for daily and spirited driving.
Not the Konigs, They are the TSW Bathurst, for some reason they look a lot cleaner in person.
Hope this helps

Thanks! Yes I am leaning towards the 245s (as is my installer lol!).
Iíve always liked the squat ďrallyĒ look but I come from 4x4s and big chunky tires and really have not too much experience owning a lower vehicle. Therefore my version of road handling is a little off. Definitely loving it though.
Looking at the TSWs, I now like those over the Konigs haha. Personally I went for 19s (Niche Targaís) and it is looking like 245s are the way to go. 100 Kms a day to and from work mostly highway.

I test fitted my 18x8" summer wheels with 235's and I now know that my initial idea to go 245's was right. I let myself worry that the 245's would look to wide and out of place on the CX-3, but now I can tell, that 245's would be just right for my tastes. Others might disagree.

When tire replacement time comes around, I will go with the 245's. Plus, I believe that they are slightly taller than stock 18's and to be honest that will help fill things out even more IMHO.

Waiting for my center cap stickers before I mount them for the summer...
