I pulled photos from many places and often without permission. If anyone has objections to the pictures I used please let me know.

Stock 2G Mx6 wheels have a 5x114 bolt pattern with an offset of 42 and a hub diameter of 67.1mm.

Note: MANY OF THESE WHEELS WILL REQUIRE SPACERS TO FIT PERFECTLY
Eventually, I will gather the information about spacer sizes and add it to this sticky. If anyone knows anything I don't please PM me.

Here is my favorite wheel and tire calculator to help you figure things out.

I have opened this to allow for comments and such. Also so people can add their own info to this thread.

Keep side comments out of this thread. I will be cleaning it occasionally and I will delete unnecessary posts.

I planned to put some Ansen Sprint Wheels on my mx-6.

As they write on the American Racing website, usually front wheel drive cars have rims with a 35mm offset.

I see that 7" wide rims will fit perfectly but what about the offset of the rims you showed?

Any wheels off a Grand Am 99 thru 05 and Grand Prix 90 thru 07 will also work.

Provide pictures of them installed on an mx6 and they will be.

5x114.3 is very close to 5x115 and wouldn't cause any problems. Hell VW guys do 5x112 on 5x114.3 with wobble bolts. They have different studs than us though.

Anybody running the 06 mazda3 rims without spacers on stock height? I don't have the money for spacers atm. Do they rub?

Here's some pictures of my bbs rims, I need to find a place that can bore out my center hub as the hub is too small from the rx7 size to the 2nd gen mx6s. If anyone knows how I can fit them without boring out the center hubs I would greatly appreciate the info. Sorry the pictures might be a bit blurry because my camera phone sucked back than but it will give you an idea. I hope the pictures work.

Clearance issues with 17X7's

I just picked up a set of 17X7's and they're hitting the lower spring cup of my struts. The struts are shot, and need to be replaced, but does anyone know if there's a strut with a 1" difference in lower spring cup height? I'm tall, and a 1" lift would give me the clearance and make getting in and out easier. If not, will the stock struts clear these wheels with 215/50/17's?

I had the stock 15's in there, but I cracked a rim on a curb (thank you to the teen driver who caused the accident and promptly left the scene). I picked up the rims and skins on Craixx list.
My rims are the 7th picture down. I tried to put in the link, but it put a hold on the post. I called tech support at KYB to see it they had a recommendation. Of course, they did not.
I was also considering going with an air ride system, but it's not something I've done before, and I can't find anyone who is using it to RAISE, not lower their car.

215/50/17 is too big a tire for the mx-6 if you're comparing to the stock size of 205/55/15. It's almost an inch bigger in radius, so that would put it almost an inch closer to the lower spring perch and cause the rubbing issues you have. A size of 215/40/17 is almost an exact match to the radius of the stock tire, and if the offset of the stock vs new rim is the same, then it shouldn't have any issue at all. I used to run that size on my rims, but 215/45/17 gave me a more comfortable ride because of the taller sidewall and made the wheel look a bit bigger as well and filled the wheel well more while still not rubbing anywhere. My rims have an offset of +40mm or so, if yours are +40 or less, then the 215/45/17 size should be fine. You can usually see the offset stamped into the rim somewhere.
