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?

If you went with a 235/40R19 you'd likely be safe. That being said, it's gonna be an expensive and somewhat elusive tire size to find. Otherwise, you'd either be looking at a 205/45R19 (smaller tread, so you might sacrifice handling) or a 265/35R19 (which might cause rubbing issues).

The Dunlop tires that come originally with the 3rd gen 19's.....what size are those? I think I found a set with original tires too. That said.....would it work?

The OE tires are 225/45R19. They'd sit too high.

So this is a stupid question .. but can you pull wider tires on the 3rd gen 19" wheels?

I like my stock wheels but I like to a have a wider track.

Although it will look wider, technically the track width remains the same, unless you buy new wheels with less offset, even with less tire width than oem.

First since you are in the 1st gen forum, you likey wasted what little time you spent "combing" though posts.

=> get in the 2nd gen wheel forum, and search for "3rd gen" 19" wheels

I found this link in less than a minute ... PRACTICE SEARCHING!

You are very right! Stupid me I was looking in the wrong gen section. After your response I browsed without the link you provided in the PROPER section and found the same topic. Thanks for the update. It looks like these wheels will be a great match for the 2nd gens. Everything I've read on it sounds perfect. When I get them; I'll look to see if I have to lower anything.

By the way; out of curiosity, will this wheel/tire combo from the 3rd gen on my 2nd gen cause any speedometer variances? Or would it fall within a proper tolerance?
