Not sure what advice to give here. The Touring and Grand Touring come with 18" wheels which look sharp but at a bit of cost to ground clearance. Not sure about 19". Guess, check on Tirerack.com and see what is available.

Hi all

I have a 2019 cx3 base spec.

I am about to purchase aftermarket wheels, i currently have 16inch Mazda rims, I would like to purchase 19".

Will this work on the cx3?
At issue is the available space between the top of the tire and the bottom of the front spring mounting. My cx3 (2017 AWD) with the factory 18" wheels had barely enough room to slide my finger between the tire and the spring perch. I lifted my car using the Flatout Suspension kit that came with new struts, shocks and springs. The new front struts have a smaller diameter spring that gave me the clearance for a much taller (28.7" vs 26.5") tire.Total lift with the taller tire and suspension kit is 2.5" Shocks are adjustable, so ride quality isn't compromised. Struts and their mounts have more camber and caster adjustment.
