Any chance the Storms will come in bright silver someday?

So far they have resisted my begging for other colors, but I keep trying.

Can you get away with the Advanti Storm in 15x8 with 205/50 tires on a stock NB (2003) without rolling the fenders? The good-win site says you can with slight negative camber; what if you don't have any camber?

If not, second question: Is it worth it to get the 8s instead of 7s and roll the fenders?

If you have no camber that 25mm combo will rub! You want camber, the Miata is not worth a darn in the turns without proper camber.

As for 8s versus 7s....depends on YOUR priorities. If daily ride comfort is your top priority then stay with 7s. If performance is your top priority, then certainly any 205/50/15 tire is FASTER when you fully stabilize the tire sidewalls on an 8 inch wide wheel.

I value handling performance the most at this point, which probably means I need to go with the 8" wheels. How much does the fender need to be rolled? All the way flat? Is there a way to tell if it's rolled enough without actually going full speed into a turn? Is there like a standard minimum clearance between the tire and the fender that I can measure?

Thanks!

With car on jackstands, remove shock and spring and disconnect swaybar endlink. Install wheel in question. Place jack under lower control arm and raise through its range of motion while checking fender clearance. But you could have figured this out for yourself.

Adding to the response above, the more negative camber you have, the less fender rolling you need to do. My suggestion is try 1.5 negative camber all around, that will mean a mild fender roll is all you need and the Miata really likes that much camber for corner fun.

Thanks, yeah I guess that's pretty simple.

I guess I'm a little hesitant to change the camber right now; I'm not ready to autocross yet, and right now it's my daily driver and only car. I enjoy tooling around winding country roads in it when I get the chance, but I also spend a lot of time on the interstate, and I wouldn't want to tear up my tires prematurely. The reason I wanted the 8" wheels is because I do enjoy hard cornering and the responsiveness that comes from better tire support, and because someday I might like to autocross, so I figured I might as well get good wheels since I'm getting new ones anyway.

Will the 15x8 Advantis with 205/50s absolutely require camber? Or can I just roll the fender lip and be ok for now? I have rented the Eastwood tool, so I can roll the fender as much as I need to; I just want to make sure that I shouldn't have to adjust camber too, before I order the wheels.

Thanks!

The Miata is a LIGHT car, most folks can do 1.2 to 1.5 camber without adverse wear even if more than 50% of their mileage is interstate. If you have zero camber now, add at least negative 1.2 camber and you will find the car is quite a bit more fun to drive...and it will make fitment easier. Otherwise, just plan to do more work with that Eastwood tool.

I'll second that. It not only clears . . . it clears by a LOT.

They're great wheels. I've been track-POUNDING on them since May.
