You drive a Mazda3.

You will rub.

You will not like rubbing.

The police will not like rubbing.

Better put 215/40/18x8 rims with at least 40mm offset. 33mm offset is too low and the wheels will stick out of the fender.

How low is the car?

Youre looking at 6mm less inner clearance and 44 mm more outwards poke.

If you're at stock ride height, you won't rub.

Plus Mazda3 wheels are that sunk in anyways, you'll sit pretty close to flush or poke a little. If you're ballsy and you slam the car too you could end up with the nicest mazda3 fitment in vancouver!
