Asked by Sep 07, 2013 at 05:36 PM about the 1999 Mazda 626 ES

Question type: Car Customization

going from 14" to 15"// the bolt size matches. A better looking ride and the car will sit up better. The 4 cylinder uses a 14" tire but the same car but with a 6 cylinder uses a 15" Tire. No big problem correct??

The wheels might fit, double check the wheel well clearance, also the speedometer will be no longer be accurate. Make sure the 6 cyl. version has the same size brakes as the 4 cyl. version.

Make sure you run 205/60R15's tires on the rims, as it's close to the 185/70R14's that came stock.
