225/30/20 would be the best option, very expensive and very thin though

It's the same height as the original equipment tire, but in extra load only carries an 85 load index! Remember, you need at least 91. So, let's see, pay over $1000 for a set of BFGs, wear them out in 10,000 miles or less, do it all over again! Note to self: send e-mail to Toyo - we need to make this size!

Only feasible way a 20 could be lighter then the 17's would be if it was made from magnesium, and signifcantly thinner then stock...even then all 4 of them would cost more then the retail price of a new Mazda 6.

Are they modifying your fenders to accommodate that width?

Im not so sure but i really dont want to go with 18's This is the wheel that im want to go with..

That rim at 20x8.5 will most likely have an offset of 38 or lower. It'll stick past your fenders, and you'll tear your fenders apart. I've been there and done that. Get rims that FIT!

More likely to blow them out than wear them out. Been selling Coopers four years now and those who go below the load rating, more often than not, the tread seperates, comes apart (With it still having between 4 to 7/32nds).

When we are talking about 20s and tires already so close to the fender, when you go big on this car, your going to pay big in repairs when the tire fails because you were too wrapped up in showing off to everyone.

To give you a recent example, one blew out on a minivan and did $2,500 worth of damage.

Old topic but im getting 20's for my ride and lowering it. Also there are 20's that are way lighter than the stock wheels. Just depending on the stlye. Only thing im trying to do is be different.

And 20x8.5 will NOT fit with the offset available in that wheel

they baggin that thing while it's in there? along with flaring all the sheetmetal? from what i've been told,seen, and working for a mazda dealer those wheels on a dropped 6 along with passing the fenders will also beat the inner structure to death. i dont even see it clearing the strut. please post pics and prove us wrong

can 20's fit on the 6 without any modifications? if yes what would the rim and tire size be? i have 18's on there now with 215/40/18 tires and they rub around turns and bumps, mostly when people are in the back

Well, people have asked this before, so a search would be a good place to start. 20" rims on a 6 is really pushing the limits. Its hard to say yes or no to 20's outright, because it all depends on what tyres you put on the wheels too. They'd have to be such low profile, I dread to think the road noise!

Regardless of fit, your handling will go way down the tubes, braking will take longer and you run the risk of overhetaing the pads or racking the rotors due to increased stress. The car will accelerate much slower. Unless the car will be a trailer queen, do yourself a favour and stick to the 18's.
