Found some 13 inch wheels on craigslist two nights ago for $30. Figured "hey.... $30 bucks for wheels with our 4x100 bolt pattern, can't really lose."
The owner purchased them in the early 90s, but couldn't remember anything about them. Had removed them years ago and left them in his barn. Dude had like 6 old VWs chillen.
They seem light with some 205/60s mounted on them, but I can't wait to dismount the tires and check with my scale. Backspacing was measured at +24. I tried to measure the width, but it is hard to know for sure until the tires are off. I believe they are 6.5 or 7 inches wide, as they are a bit more than 7 inches wide from inner to outer lip (on the outside).
Anyways, not too many posts on the forum about 13inch wheels. Is it common or practical for an NA owner to use wheels like these? They look like drag or slot style wheels. Should I keep them as a miata part for use, trade, or sell.... or would it not really work for the application?
Took some pics... Thoughts?
Laid them against my stock NB... not mounted.
