Guy expects to get every single penny he spent on the car back including labor and gasoline...

I don't know **** about these wheels. Decent deal?
Miata TRM 15x9 TRM Wheels and Hankook RS3's 225/45ZR/15
Miata TRM 15x9 TRM Wheels and Hankook RS3's 225/45ZR/15

Listing a set of FOUR 15x9 4x100 spacing TR Motorsport wheels finished in Black with a set of 225/45ZR/15 Hankook R-S3's. These were used exclusively used for autocrossing as they are a fast set-up. The car was trailered to events so no street miles. If you are looking for Stance then this combination will really fill up those wheel openings. The 9" wheel will mean that you will have to roll fenders in the front if you are not running at least 3 degrees of front camber. We dialed in a lot of camber so there was no issue. Even with our lowered car we did not have to modify the rear quarter at all but again we ran some aggressive camber in the rear as well.
Lots of life left in these tires. They are now shaved from use to the sticky rubber. I do have 3 of the center caps (don't know where the 4th is) and they are in the wrappers since we never used them. We have switched to slicks so not really using these at the moment. But with as many Miatas as we have we could probably find one needing some bigger shoes. The picture shows how much wider the 225's shown on the right are over 205's shown on the left. Just checked Tire Rack this set-up costs $1050 new plus another $60 in mounting and balancing. Passing along a nice savings for very little use.

The pictures are from when the set was NEW. Note that they have been used.

$800 and they are yours. Call or Text at the contact links provided show contact info

Price out what this set-up costs new before you try lowballing. I don't have time for unrealistic expectations and I don't subsidize buyers with little cash and big dreams. No trades. Will not separate tires from rims.

Depends how much life is left in the tires. But yes, seems like a good deal on the surface.

I emailed the guy for more information ... he's not a car guy. He's a kid working in a detail shop. Making further fun of him brings me no joy. It's like seal clubbing. I'm going to help him fix his post.

To be fair. 4800 for a turbo rotary Miata is a steal.

Indeed. But I'm pretty sure there is zero chance this car has a rotary.

Hell, if he's built a turbo rotary that gets 40 MPG, I'm pretty sure that Mazda will hire him.

2 things:
I get a kick out of how people claim fuel mileage like that with anything. I've heard people tell me how their 2004 Volkswagen Jetta Turbo diesel gets like 70 miles per gallon. I think Volkswagen or any other car company that makes these cars that people claim get such fantastic mileage should sell them with calculators and instructions on how to calculate your fuel mileage.
Lastly. You would not believe the amount of people that asked me if my car was a rotary because they actually thought that Miatas were rotary.

I came here to say this.

I'd put money on it that this thing does not have a rotary.

Oh I asked him for all kinds of pics. He mentioned "there's a $1200 ecu, with a switch to run the stock ecu." He is completely ignorant of the functional details of the car. He's not a car guy. If it has a rotary I will buy every MT.net member in the greater Portland area a beer. And a Grape Nehi for Ed.

am i high or are they really this much now

BBS 15" Merlot M Edition Wheels - MX-5 Miata Forum
BBS 15" Merlot M Edition Wheels
For sale are FOUR 15" BBS Miata Merlot M Edition aluminum wheels in excellent condition. They fit fine on Miata from 1990 - 2002

Included are 4 center BBS caps and cap removal tool and Miata logo valve stem caps.

The Manufacture's list price is $1,119 each, new... But they are no longer new.

They are light: 12 pounds
They are round (just removed 4 of them from my 2000 SE Miata) they drove PERFECT!
They are classy
They are in great shape
They are ready for you.

Why are they for sale? I sold my 2000SE Miata to someone who wanted the original wheels reinstalled. (I had been selling them separate.)

Special offer for those who read this far. I actually have 5 of these wheels and lug covers. I will throw in the 5th wheel and lug cover for $200 more. So my offer is $1500 for 5 M Edition wheels or $1300 for 4. Your choice. Shipping is available.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Miata and tires are not included.
