Mazda5 wheels on a 3

Does anyone have pics of Mazda5 wheels on their 3? If so please post or shoot me a link.

I want to make sure before I purchase a set of 5 wheels I saw on C/L that they actually fit the 3.

Thank you

Just looking at the specs, they definitely fit, almost the exact same size and offset as your existing OEM wheels. Can't find any pictures of them on a 3, though.

I recall there being 2 MZ3's on Mazda5 wheels. Finding pics though is like searching for a needle in a haystack.

I know, I searched the forums and can't find anything. I believe I read somewhere that the 5 and the 3 share the same platform.

They do.

They fit fine and look not too far off the 04-06 S trim wheels. I believe they are the same specs even.

Here you go, found a pic.
