Investing in a new set of wheels can not only totally transform the aesthetics of your Mazdaspeed 3, but it is also an excellent way to improve performance.

The ten-spoke design also complements the Mazdaspeed 3 extremely well and is considered a good fit whether you’re viewing them as a performance wheel. It is also a very suitable wheel for stance builds as the XXR 527 is available in a very wide format.

Avid1 AV6

Mazdaspeed 3 Avid1 AV6

This Avid1 AV6 wheel has become a common JDM wheel for hatchbacks and wagons, including the Mazdaspeed 3, and rightfully so. The Avid1 AV6 offers a stunning 6-spoke design that screams JDM, and at a fraction of the price of some of its competitors, such as the TE37s.  

Design and Weight

The AV6 design is elegant and timeless, the 6-spoke design screams JDM and provides a more prominent stance than some of the other multi-spoke designs out there.

The AV6 is utilizing a one-piece design and is cast with aluminum. In spite of being a fully cast wheel, the AV6 is still considered relatively light

Colors

The color options for the AV6 vary between:

  • Blue
  • White
  • Gloss Black
  • Bronze
  • Hyperblack
  • Black

Sizes

The AV6 is limited to a 17”x8 and 18”x8 design with offsets ranging from +18mm to +42mm which makes it an exemplary choice for the Mazdaspeed 3.

Price

The great thing with the AV6 is the availability. You can order these wheels and have them in a couple of weeks, in comparison to some TE37s that can take a long time to arrive.

But perhaps the greatest thing of all is the price. The AV6 can be had for around $200 a wheel which makes them great value for money, not everyone wants to spend $3,000-$5,000 on a set of TE37s.

WEDS Kränze Cerberus II

Mazdaspeed 3 Weds Cerberus II

The Weds Cerberus is perhaps the wheel that stands out the most on this list, and you might be able to tell just from the looks alone.

Design and Weight

The design is what matters with the WEDS Cerberus II which is part of WEDS ‘Kränze’ series and is more suited to ‘luxurious’ or ‘VIP’ cars with its deep-dish design. But somehow, they ended up becoming a surprisingly good fit for the Mazdaspeed 3. If you’re considering a stance build or installing air suspension the WEDS Cerberus is certainly a wheel to take into consideration.

Since the Weds Cerberus are no longer in production there are no real good reliable sources on its weight. But it is safe to say they are on the heavier side.

Colors

The Weds Cerberus II is very limited in terms of colors. But common colors which you can find used are:

  • Chrome
  • White
  • Gold
  • Black
  • Grey

Sizes

As the Cerberus II are mostly used for stance cars and larger saloon cars, they start at 18” and go up all the way to 22”.

Price

The price varies quite significantly and depends mostly on condition. On the low end, a rough set will set you back around $1,200 while in pristine condition may cost you up to $3,000 a set.

ESR SR09

Mazdaspeed 3 ESR SR09 Wheels

One of our favorites, the ESR SR09 completely transforms the look of the Mazdaspeed 3. This is the wheel for the person looking for a unique and fresh look, and that is exactly what the SR09 offers.

Design and Weight

Just like the Weds Cerberus II the ESR SR09 is all about the design. The SR09 is made through a one-piece design and is created using a high-quality, low-pressure casting process which makes them very strong and durable.

The design itself is one of the most unique on the market with its 10-spoke design and metal rivets. And if you think they look good in a picture, we assure you, they look even better in real life.

The ESR SR09 weighs in at around 29 lbs, so they are not particularly light. But they a very strong and rigid and makes for an excellent daily-drivers wheel.

Colors

The color choices are quite limited and since they have become discontinued the supply will not get any larger. These are the colors which you can find used:

  • Hypersilver
  • White
  • Black Chrome
  • Black
  • Gold Chrome

Sizes

The ESR SR09 can be found in either 18” or 19” with the width starting at 8.5” and going all the way up to 10.5”. Wheel offset varies from 22mm, 30mm, and 35mm.
