A guy is selling '06 M6 17" OEM alloys with good snow tires mounted. I do have the 04 6 wagon, but I actually want these wheels/tires for our '15 Mazda 5 Sport (16" alloys) for winter use. I understand that they'll fit ok and work because the 17"s take a lower profile tire. I just want to verify they'll work fine, and that I'll have to get the shop to install sensors if I don't want a light. Does this sound right? I can save a shitload of $$$ this way, but want to make sure it's smart/safe 馃檪

use this so you can compare the two tire sizes and ensure the rolling diameter will be the same between the two. If they are close enough, go for it. Just make sure you inspect the wheels and tires before buying.

The short answer is that any 5-lug Mazda wheel made in recent memory will fit any other 5-lug Mazda of the same era. The offsets are all within a couple of millimeters of each other and the bolt patterns are the same. As an example, I have a set of 2018 18-inch Mazda3 wheels for my 2004 Mazda6.

That's what I'm seeing. Funny thing, yesterday on Facebook a listing popped up with a guy selling his wife's previous 16" steelies from her first-gen Mazda3 with decent studded winter tires on them -- for $60. Needless to say I dropped everything and went to pick them up. Just another reason to love Mazdas. Although I still will have to pay to have TPMS sensors put in, I'll still be way ahead of the game since a brand new set of rims and snow tires start at what, $700-800?
