Question Swap rims? 2004 17" to 2013 16" ? Issues?

Hello folks, newb here. I've had my 2004 3 hatchback since new in 2004. I have the sport package 17" alloys and just bought new tires. At 200,000 miles I decided to buy a newer version. I just got a 2013 3 hatchback touring Skyactiv. It has older tires and 16" rims. Can I swap my 17s straight across? Are the offsets the same? Will it affect the odometer, mileage, handling? Better, worse? Ideas?

Thanks in advance guys n gals.

You're fine swapping the stock 16" out for the 17". The offset is off by 2.5mm but that won't cause any issues.

Both Cars:
Bolt Pattern - 5x114.3 (5x4.5)
Hub Bore - 67mm
Lug-nut pitch - 12mm 1.5 (M12x1.5)

2004-2006 OEM Mazda3 17-inch
Width - 6.5 inches
Offset - 52.5mm
Wheel - 22lbs
Tire size - 205/50-17

2010+ OEM Mazda3 16-inch
(iTouring)
Width - 6.5 inches
Offset - 50mm
Weight - 16lbs
Tire size - 205/55-16
