Bigger question is, how many can I break per accidental driftday?

6ULs and Xidas should be here in 2 weeks, for reals.

Josh, I will just need them for the fronts, so 8 studs. If they're sold individually then maybe get an extra in case I screw one up somehow. Thanks Josh.

Note that the fronts and rears are different part #s on the 94+.

The rear seems to be able to do its job just fine because no spacers. No?

IMHO the car looks a bit odd with long studs on the front and short ones on the rear, but that's just cosmetic.

I find that having the long round-nose studs are nice to have when I'm changing between race tires and street tires all the time, but that's a convenience thing, not a functional one.

I hope you bought fancy 949 lugs because you are going to need open ended lugs with those studs.

I made sure to mention this after you ordered the studs

I sure hope the Xidas are here soon. Had signed up for an event on the 19th but that's looking extremely unlikely with no coilovers.

Not a whole lot to update except.....





And I gotta say, I don't know if you guys fully understand the meaning of this. I joined this forum in Sep 2010, just after buying my first Miata. That one never made it turbo, but I always drooled over these meats on the turbo miatas here. When Cjernigan's car came up for sale I thought it was perfect, and ever since then I have wanted 15x9 6ULs in nickel.

Yep, I've been waiting for this for almost 4.5 years. I don't know that I've ever been as excited about the cosmetic side of something. And they're every bit as beautiful in person. Some flaws in paint but still beautiful. And holy crap, wide and light.

I has a happy. Now to go get a sad by attempting to swap the diff bushings and rear subframe on the 10AE.

I swear every time 15x9s come back into stock it's like Christmas for the Miata community.

Tungsten is hott.

Edit: reading comprehension fail. Nickel is hott tooooo.

Didn't touch the subframe, just worked more on zerks and bushings. Got one control arm done this better be worth it, cuz it's a TON of work.

Also, another photo...
