Default Best Rings to Use with OEM Mazda 83.5mm Pistons?

Hi,

As per the title, what the best rings to use with OEM Mazda 83.5mm pistons?

Road/Track car, but road miles are mostly to get to the track!

Cheers.

Your other options are Sealed Power or other brands through Autozone, Napa, etc. All have been proven fine, but yeah, your best bet is OEM.

AZ routinely has 20% off coupons if you're signed up for their emails, so Sealed Power rings come to $96/set.

I think Mazda OEM is still a better deal if you have a Mazdaspeed(comp?) account.

OEM Mazda ones cost about the same from Mazdacomp.

If I were putting rings on stock pistons, I'd use stock rings because AFAIK there's nothing wrong with stock rings and it's just easier.
