I'm looking to by some 17's for my MX-6. I have some aftermarket 15's on now (were on when I got the car), but that just doesn't cut. I tried to do s search, but I came up with some many different numbers that I kinda got confusing. So I thought I would try to start a thread with organized information about what rims sizes fit spicificly on the MX-6. I dont know how broad the sizes are because I'm not too familiar with wheels. So if anyone could post some info about rims for me it would be great. I dont want to have to do any modifications to the car to get rims to fit. I just want to get a set of 17's or 18's and just be able to bolt them right on if possible. When it comes to rims, I dont know a thing, so any information would be helpful.
Thanks
Mike

Well, you can gt pretty much any wheel for our cars. I think 19's are a bit of a stretch though. I never see anything wider than 7.5 at the most. I think more or less 225 and under and you'll be fine. I have 17's with 215/45's, and there's plenty of room. If that's what you're looking for, it shouldn't be too hard to find nice wheels, it's a very common size. As long as they have the 5 lug pattern you're good

smart ass


I believe those wheels would fit as long as you get the 5 x 100 pattern. Somebody with a little more knowledge may want to concur, but that sounds right.

I lost the auction so it doesn't matter anyway now. But the rims had the 10 lug spaces that would have worked for both the 5x100 and 5x114.3. I just wanted to be sure if either of those sizes would fit. I'd still like to know, because I'm going to continue shopping around for something.

Lol, mav, remember, I drive an MX-3 with the more commonly used 4x100 lug pattern, I was being truthful when saying I didn't know that, lol.

I keep those other types of posts to the Lounge.

wait, I thought I just read that 6s have the 5 x 114.3 pattern. Is it this, or the 5 x 100?
