rim bore sizes

Hi guys,

Im a new mazda owner coming from a Honda. Most honda wheels have the exact bolt pattern and offset liek mazda rims. Mazda 3 in particular. The only differance is the bore size. Mazda 3 is 67mm and Honda Prelude is 64.1mm.

My question is this. Would it be worth making the bore bigger so I can use my old honda rims for winter? or is there some sort of adapter? I know I can use a spacer to put mazda rims on a prelude, bt I want to go the other way around.


thanks everyone!

Re: rim bore sizes

You can bring it to a shop to have it trim out a few mm around the hub, it shouldn't damage anything if done properly...

Re: rim bore sizes

cant put 4 lug wheels on a 5 lug...just to make sure that's not what you're trying to do. I called around to bore my IS300 wheels out and they told me 100 per wheel...maybe i called the wrong places...

Re: rim bore sizes

Unless you can find a wheel place that is setup to do boring you won't get it any cheaper. At the same time you can probably get steelies for less than you will get them bored any where.

Re: rim bore sizes

Bring it to a machine shop - a regular one, not an automotive one. I doubt it would cost much more than $100 for all four.

When you do it, bring a Mazda wheel with you so they can take an exact measurement. This way they will be able to give you exacty the right center bore.

Re: rim bore sizes
