    Mazda 6 17" rims on a 2014 CX5 for winter?

    Hi all,

    First ever post here as a Mazda CX5 driver!

    Question: would 17 rims from a 2007 Mazda 6 fit on our cars and serve well as winter rims?

    The CX5 size is:

    225/65R17 7Jx17 ET50 5x114.3

    While the Mazda 6 size is:

    215/50R17 7Jx17 ET46 5x114.3

    Would the Mazda 6 rims still fit with the difference in offset? I'm looking to mount 235/65/17 winters on them.

    P.S. Just read this post:

    ...and wondered if I run into the same issue with spacers.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I think the 17" wheels from your Mazda 6 would be a very good choice for a winter setup. The 4mm difference in offset (0.2") won't cause any problems, the tire will just be slightly more flush with the fender. You can plug in your numbers on this website https://www.rimsntires.com/specspro.jsp for a better look at what it changes.

    My one question for you, is why 235/65/17 instead of 225/65/17? In the case of snow, most experts don't think wider is better. Unless you already have the 235's on hand or are getting a great deal on them, I'd consider 225's.

    More of a cost saving thing as I thought I could score the 235s for a better deal. Turns out, I was wrong. Thanks for the advice and for responding to my post.

    Glad to be back into another Mazda!

    Oh, and thanks to the link to site: https://www.rimsntires.com/specspro.jsp

    Appreciated.
