the widebody is so deceiving, it looks like you are running 15x7s under stock fenders.

not sure if I 100% like how it looks with 20mm spacer. I want a widebody and I want 9" wheels that fit over my brakes.

Nice job Slava.

When, not if, you go left rudder and think of parting out. Pm me first, I may want to buy it complete.

I'm actually thinking of keeping this car for good. It will just become my track car after I save up for Cayman S

Why did you sell your Miata??

Yeah, sadly so. It turned into a summer only daily driver. It was way to overbuilt for such a pedestrian life. Even though I'm rolling a very sweet WRB Forester XT, I miss the Miata terribly.

Whats the date on those R80s? Been having a lot of road racer friends getting blow outs with the Hoosier radial slicks this year for some strange reason. Way more than normal.

No idea, haven't looked. I doubt I'll be able to put enough load on them to worry about that
