2004+ Ford Crown Victoria wheels.
17"x7"
Offset: 54mm
Pitch: 114.3
Center bore: 70.6mm. Had the lathe shop machine 70.7mm-67.0mm centering rings.

With the lack of "affordable," well-made wheels with an appropriate offset for the 6 in this town, I had to resort to some creative thinking. The Chinese junk I had on the cars before seemed to sustain damage all too easily in this pothole/bump/cracked-asphalt-dotted town, and with the world-famous Chinese indifferent approach to quality, they never seemed to balance perfectly, so I always got vibration at one speed or another. I found these in the storage room of a tire shop I happen to deal with. The numbers looked right, so it was worth a try.
So far, so good. They seem to be stronger than the OE Mazda wheels, because a few notorious potholes that bent my OE rims didn't do anything to these. That said, I bought them earlier this month and I already have at least one (slightly) bent rim on the ATX, which I replaced. The ones on the MTX are still fine. The guy had a stock of 16 rims, and I finally bought the last six today (yes, I'm gonna keep a stock )
And the best part: they're 100% genuine, American-made wheels
Just to be sure, I visited the Ford dealer's service department on Saturday, and what do I find? That the Crown Vics he sells have the same Chinese-made that can be found at the discount wheel market! So much for the world's biggest Ford dealer!
I'll take some better pictures asap.

Fenders are rolled and still rub slightly in the rear only. I'll pull the fenders a bit and that should do it. It probably only needs a few more mm. The front appears to have lots of clearance from the suspension components. In fact it'd be safe to assume that you could get away with the same tires and a 50mm offset.
