Thank you so much for the quick and helpful reply.The GTs 18" wheels will fit fine on any model CX3. In fact, the 2017 coming out in July will have them standard on the Touring model. Not sure they are the same GT wheels or not but its believed they are.
The silver strip is an easy install. Its just taped on as a few here have removed it. Call your dealers parts dept and ask for the cost etc. You can probably install yourself.
Welcome to the forum and good luck with your decisions.
Hi....will the ET35 fit on the CX3 ET50 ?. I've come across a set of 19"112 rims with a ET35 so wondering if they would fitWORK Emotion CR Ultimate Kiwami (19" x 8.5 +35 offset)
Pirelli P1's 245 x 35 x 19
Stock 18" wheels are 18 x 7 +50
Therefore I have 4mm, less inner clearance (no rubbing whatsoever) and 34mm poke from the stock position.
There is plenty of caliper clearance, maybe 2 to 3 fingers worth.
You will require hub rings to centrally locate these wheels.
The 19's are more than streetable and there is a more direct feel in the steering due to the shorter sidewall.
Yes the ride is slightly more firmer, though you will not be disappointed.
