Mazda 6 Wheels vs Mazda 6 Wheels
So this may sound like a "newbish" question, but I am uncertain of whether or not this has specifically been addressed in the wheel/tire section. I have combed through it briefly and it's extensive. I could spend weeks looking.
Instead I'll just ask this: Has anyone here tried to swap out Mazda 6 oem wheels from a 2nd-gen, to oem wheels from a 3rd gen? Specifically lets say going from 18's on a 2nd gen to 19's from a 3rd gen. (maybe 2014) I understand the bolt pattern and offset are the same from what I have read. My concern is if there would be any issues going from an 18x8 wheel to a 19x17.5. The concern possibly being in both the tire and wheel performance and/or rubbing with the inner fender wells. (Though I understand a bigger wheel means a thinner tire, and perhaps then the overall diameter may not change). But I am no wheel expert whatsoever.
Anyone have some experience with this?
