it is 16x6'' my bad lol. and if it is smaller in the bore, and I have to bore them out, will that affect the structure of the rim in any way? I have seen people in the forum rocking some mazdaspeed protege rims and stock protege rims before so I know that they would fit. Just wanting to make sure I can install them in my car without running into huge problems.

I would look into other wheels. Idk how boring them out will effect the structure but I don't think it will be good. Also a 16x6" wheel is pretty small and would look a little funny on the 6. 18" look the best and 17" look alright. Anything bigger or smaller look out of place. When looking for width look for larger, preferably a around 8" wide.

I actually have stock 16'' steelies on my car, and in terms of size, it does not look too bad. granted the steelies are horrible.

so for instance a set of XXR 527's with the correct bolt pattern but a bore of 73.1mm would not fit on my 03 mazda 6 i?

You would need hub-centric adapter rings to take up the slop.
