I thought I found a heack of a deal on a set of snow tires mounted on steel wheels. Luckily before handing over the cash, the seller allowed me to test fit one of them onto my Mazda3. Long story short...they didn't fit. The center bore was too small, so the wheel would not seat against the hub. Silly me, I thought if the bolt pattern (5 x 114.3mm, also know as 5 x 4.5"), and back spacing were correct, that they would fit just fine. In short, I learned something today....that I also need to pay attention to the wheel's center bore size. So, does anybody know what our center bore size is?...for a 2008 Mazda3 GT?

Thanks in advance,
TJ

Nope....they were originally purchased to fit a Camry...which has a center bore of 60.1.
I was pretty frustrated to say the least...considering it was almost 100 miles one way to go get them.
I've already made a suggestion to the Wheel FAQ thread owner to put this in the FAQ's. At this time, there's no mention of the size of center bore we need for our M3's...which as was already pointed out, is 67.1mm

Cheers,
TJ
