I can't decide whether to leave it as is and just paint the wheels or bung these on. The steering is pretty heavy as it is so these won't help!

If Mat reads this maybe he could photoshop them on??

I'd love to know how that sort of thing is done! Is it just a case of having the right software (i.e. Photoshop) or is that just the beginning? :?:

photoshop and a bit of practice, sticking wheels on things and lowering is pretty easy though.http://www.digimods....s/tutorials.htm

That works! Pretty damn well too..... assuming the proportions are ok and they're not way too big for the car. The style works though.My Audi 90 was 4x108 though...... :(

I think the Audi has a 4x108 PCD with a centre bore of 57mm whereas the Mazda is 4x100 with a centre bore of 54mm which means if they're hubcentric it will wobble and drive like a p!ssed sailor-I'd double check.So when will you be getting the wop-wop-wop kevin special exhaust and boom-box stereo to blast out the best of the Venga Boys? :lol:

Sold the Audi last October - wish now that I hadn't...As I said above, the alloys have dual pcd, 4 x 108 or 4 x 114 and some people seem to think the 323 is 114. If it's 4 X 100 then I'm stuffed!I still can't decide anyway, on the one hand I like it as it is....on the other, it looks pretty good on the alloys.

pretty sure the mazda will be 4x100I'd be supprised if those wheels were 4x108 + 4x114.The most common combination is 4x108 + 4x100So all may not be lost!

I guess I'm a bit concerned about what they will do the wheel bearings too as they are 7 inches wide.

Bearings probably won't be too troubled unless you're planning on more than a few thousand miles a year?

Wheel bearing are unlikely to be a problem unless the offset is totally wrong.
