So i picked up a set of FD's today but im not sure if i want them or not they were an impulse buy :( so im not sure if i should keep these or get a set of 18's of the new mazda 6. I think the 6 wheels will look heaps better but im not sure. What do you guys think?

My FD's

Mazda 6 wheels


Edit: Just for an idea of the FD's

I find FD wheels to be quite boring on these cars. If they were painted differently, it would work with your car a bit better. THOSE FD rims, I'd pass on. While the Mazda 6 wheels dont offer the same lip/offset that would work great with your car, I'd say go that route. Its different, and FD rims on a '6 are all too common.

X2. FD's are light and they look good but everyone has them. There are other OEM wheels that fit too.

Yeah I dont like the options really. I would say if you have a slightly modified exterior thats lowered go with the FD's. It you have a body kit or something, neither save up and get some shinkas. But on a side note I LOVE the new 6. Too bad that body style did'nt have a mazdaspeed version

I think the FDs look way better than those Mazda6 rims, probably fit better too, I'm not sure about the newer 6's but Neal's stock rims are like a +60 offset.

True that, well said.

Can you get more pics of some Euro MAzda6's? They're so much nicer than the brutes we have here :mad:

Shinkas? A set of those mazda 6 rims sold on ebay the other week for $305 and they are +55 offset but are only 7 inchs wide so i need the same spacers as the FD's anyway

Paint 'em a dark bronze?:shrug: It would go well with your paint color, and bring out the wheel too! The dark grey kinda' hides them.

I think you should pick what you like by looks not by how many people have them. It is nice to be different but lets face it your not going to see another mx6 with fd's unless its a mx6 meet or pics on here. I think it all depends on what kind of look your going for. I think fd's give it a nice not to flashy look. If you are looking at factory mazda wheels you should look into miata wheels. Check out amd's m-edition he had them. I believe his user name was amdisthebest

Is this the car you are talking about? I have pics of most members cars. I do really like the idea of using oem mazda wheels.

Having a hard time finding some tyres the correct size for the FD's. So far i found a set of toyo Proxes R888's on ebay but since the closest track is hundreds of km's away and i drive the six lots i don't think they would be the best tyre. It is 225/45R16 tyres i need isnt it?
