If you're interested in 195-205 rubber, then it's Heliums or Enkei's.
If you're interested in 215+ rubber, it's 6UL's... end of wheel homework.

I just sold some Heliums for $250 a couple weeks ago. Even the cheapest decent 195's are gonna be in the $450 range installed.

6UL's used don't typically sell for much less than they are new, and bigger rubber is more expensive. Plan on $1k for 6UL's and 225's.

Plan on another $450-$500 every 15k-25k miles for new tires unless you're an idiot and buy some all-season rocks.

Stick with Toyo/Hankook/Falken and be happy.

I love 15 inch rims on a miata not to big and not to small. Just keep a eye on the weight of the rims I have been told to try to stay under 30 pounds per wheel and tire or it will handle like ****.
