Mazda6 Wheels on 4G

I could trade my steelies + $$$ for a clean set of used 17" Mazda6 wheels for winter duty. Would just like to know if they'll fit alright before pulling the trigger. Tires that are on it now are 215/50s, pretty sure my winter Toyo Observes are 225. Bolt pattern is the same, distance between lugs are too. They do resemble the OEM 17" 4G wheels an awful lot too. Thoughts?



My summer set

So the Mazda wheels are 17x7+46, which are a half inch narrower than my GT wheels, but I should still be able to mount my winter rubber. Going to pick them up hopefully this weekend.

I say go for them, they do look fairly similar and would much better than a set of steelies!
Then you can have super good summer rubber and good winter as well!

I plan to go swap them for my steelies on Monday, provided they do indeed fit.

I would assume they would fit, i can't imagine that the offset would be that different

I could go that route too, but I don't wanna spend too much money on this car. The summer tires are pretty bad though, not gunna lie (Falken ziex ze912)
