wheel/ tire question

Hey, i just purchased my 2006 mazda 6 v6 and i was wondering if these rims would work?

Wheel Details - Discount Tire Direct

What tire would i want to run for a good look?

What if i lower it?

Offset?

I never dealt with aftermarket rims so i have no clue where to start...

would need to know offset since it isn't listed.

probably need to roll the fenders and a 225/45/17 tire.

Re: wheel/ tire question

I'm currently in the process of buying rims
And a few places have confirmed for me that a 18x7.5 rim with 225/40/18 will fit without issues if the offset is 40 or higher
I'm not sure how accurate that is but thats what I was told at about 4-5 different places

80 bucks is usually about the going rate locally to do both sides. or you can rent a roller and do it yourself.

I usually prefer to do it myself with a mallet, but then again I'm very hands on.

Locally you can get it done for $40.00 for the car in my area. Looks like those wheels are +40. You'll need a fender roll but that's it.
