Mazdaspeed3 Wheels on Mazda6

This is probably a newb question, so please forgive...just want to make sure these will fit before buying.

I have a 2005 Mazda6s (17" stock rims) and looking to purchase the stock 18" rims off a 2008 Mazdaspeed3.

Will these fit? I am aware I will need new tires, just want to make sure I won't have to deal with rubbing, etc.

I have no modifications to my car.

Thanks for your input in advance everyone!

they fit. but sit way inwards of the fenders. so your gonna need some spacers to get it to look right.

MonoxideChild: do you have these rims on your 6? Can you recommend some spacers? Much appreciated!

yup. been running them over a year now. 20mm spacers would be your best bet to get the wheels sitting even with the fenders.
