the specs are:
17 x 7.5
5x114.3
offset: 50

But it does not give a bore size. It says on the listing that it fits the Mazda 3/speed3, speed6 and mx-5

im pretty set on these rims, so as long as they fit. My 6 is an 07 V6

Thanks!

Thanks.
What size tires should I go with for the 7.5" width?
225 45 17? I want them to fit the tire nice, but not to look too bulgy

Also, I wanted to go with 18" rims, but wouldnt it make the speedometer off by a little bit?

If you get 18" rims you just have to run a 40 series tire and the speedo will be very close to stock. You can look up a calculator online and figure out the difference from the stock 50 or 55 series on a 17 versus 40 or 45 series on a 18 and you'll see there is only a few degrees if that of difference depending on your tire height choice.

That is a good tire size for those rims.

Size: 7.5x17"
Offset: 40
Bolt Pattern: 5x114.3"

is what I have and they rub if people sit in the back
You need more offset. The stock wheel is 17x7, +60. You added width AND pushed the wheel out with the lower offset - not a good combo. You moved the outside edge of the wheel out 27mm (over an inch), but only increased the wheel width by 1/2inch. If you roll the fenders you should be ok.

Good luck,
