That sounds about right to me.From looking at all that, it seems like the MZ3 wheels do not fit the P5 due to the P5 hub being a little longer and which then bottoms out on the inside of the MZ5 wheel centre bore.
So I would say you need to remove approx. 3mm from the P5 front hub length so the MZ3 wheels go further in (still probably won't be able to fit centre caps), use 5mm spacers (so long as you can still get about 8-9 rotations minimum with the wheel lug when doing them up, or not use the MZ3 wheels at all and fit wheels made for the P5.
If you're referring to the outer diameter of the spacer itself, that is fine. No issues.
I'm not a fan of non hub centric spacers. Specially on the front.
The description says they're hub-centric. Are they not? I don't know... I'm just curious.
Sorry, to clarify my post, I was referring to hub centric spacers with the hub ring. See image below.The description says they're hub-centric. Are they not? I don't know... I'm just curious.
That's how I figured it would work, but it makes complete sense now. I've always been weary of the idea of spacers, and this is one of the reasons. From what you've said, it doesn't seem like I've got much else in terms of options. The hub of the car only sticks out far enough for the hub of the stock wheel to just barely hit it, but this causes it to not fit properly. If it were to fit properly, It would act as a reinforcement.Sorry, to clarify my post, I was referring to hub centric spacers with the hub ring. See image below.
In Benji's case, he is fitting rims with a centre bore of 67.1mm onto the 67.1mm Mazda hub. But by fitting a 5mm spacer, the wheel will most likely not be on the hub, and instead will be on with just the 5 studs. Not a fan of this method, as if you were to hit a big enough pothole with enough force, it is possible for the wheel to go off centre and be unbalanced, or worse, break a stud(s).
By fitting a 67.1mm centre bore wheel onto a 67.1mm hub, it is impossible to machine a hub centric spacer WITH a hub centric ring like in the photo I attached. If you were to fit... say a wheel with a centre bore of 73.1 (most aftermarket wheels) onto a 67.1 hub, then you can machine a hub centric ring onto the spacer.
Hope all that makes sense. ☺
I like the background in your pictures.
You live in a beautiful area.
