That front facing photo looks more like a surprised vampire.

You've cleaned it up very nicely from the blue/green bro colors +1

I think my eyes are playing tricks on me, wtf color is the interior? (looks good too)

haha Thanks

It's a really weird light tan/gray. My corvette had the same interior, and I could never really figure out which it leaned more towards lol

I believe the actual name for the interior color is babybarf.

That's when it's called taupe. Haha

My wife and I have this discussion about our living room paint.

lol baby vomit taupe

Anyways, I ordered different wheels for the MSM. I LOVE the flat outs on my 01, but just wasn't feeling the color combo on the Ti, so I ordered matte black Advantis

I too thought about this combo on the Ti gray. But I settled on going for black PF01's later on.

Looking forward to what they look like on the msm!

I agree about the konigs probably not looking great on the TI. It seems like the MSM really needs black or "smoked" wheels of some sort. I'm not a huge fan of black wheels personally but it should look pretty sick.

Gotta ask though... What size? stick with the X8's or go with the 9's? I hope you did 9's... looks perfect. You did it on the 2000!

Dark wheels need the right car color to look good. Ti is one of those colors.

Personally I liked black wheels on my Emerald Mica, but Ms Mobius rather hated them. So buhbye.

Size? I was hoping no one would ask
You're gonna laugh.
Then you're gonna cry.
Then you're gonna rage.
Then you're gonna hate.






I got 15x7 this time.

I've had 15x9, and I now have 15x8, and neither then nor now have I tracked any of my cars, or even really put the tires to the limit. So I said screw it, I'm gonna try 7's. Because 10LB . Also because 205's actually look meaty on em. Also because they're more comfy for DD.

Can't say I wasn't tempted to go with some x9 Jonlongdong's, I just absolutely love the look of those wheels. And the price.
Oh well

So tempted to neg prop your post.






Freaking 7's?

All track stuff aside, the fat wheels just look sooo much better.

In for pics.

Miatas @ MRLS dates are on the calendar for Oct 3-4 2015. Plenty of time for you to get a helmet and actually stick around for a track day.

You're assuming he'll still have this Miata by then!

I just had to fulfill your prophecy. First I laughed. Then I cried. Then I raged. Then I hated.

Then I just wanted to see pictars.

I don't really see the point of doing 7's instead of 8's but they'll probably be great on the street.

I seriously considered picking up a set of 6ULs in 15x7 for DD rubber, then I came to my senses and bought 15x8 and ran 205s

Then I put 205 NT01s on my 8s and bought a set of 195s to go on the factory 6s. The 195s aren't really "bad" by any stretch of the imagination, but I really really wish I had kept the 205/8 DD rubber combo. I was heartily tempted by the 15x8 Jamalamadingdongs as well, but no one could confirm they would fit over Man Brakes™

What tire and what size will you be putting on the 7s?

Soviet is still running 8s and 205 Star Specs on the Red Rocket, correct?
