would 2008 mazda 3 hatchback rims fit a 1991 626 GD by any chance ?

or does anyone know where i can get some cheap wheels from, i need new tires but the rims i have dont seem worth it and $1400 for some rims and tires seems stupid.

regards
frogger

they fit but rub.

offset is not really enough.

SP23 rims are 52.5mm and will rub easily on the 42mm offset on a GD and stil lrub on GE 45mm offset. 3mm -5 for GE or 5- 8mm on GD needed - depending on tyre fitted.


all other mazda 3 rims will vary but most new mazda's have large offset numbers and so they don't apply well to early mazdas

I ran a set of Mazda 6 rims on my wagon. I did run camber bolts on the car also with about -ve 2 degrees. I ran 30mm bolt on spacers to get the look I was after. the rim was near enough to being level with the edge of the guard. Without the camber though, 25mm bolt on would be suitable.

The stock 16" rims off of R32's, R33's, and S14's - amongst others - will fit straight on providing the tires arent too wide (I was running 205/50/16 on my 626T). This can also give you an updated look for little coin.

Have spotted a few GD/GEs sporting 200sx/300zx/S14/S15 rims.

All seem to fit well.

Spotted a beaten up GD turbo at a client recently with recent model Suzuki Swift Sports 17" rims. Actually looks like Craig's old mx6 (GOTF2TinGD or whatever his name was here).
