Yeah, it actually will fit a 15x9. IIRC, someone out in CA are using that setup to race on (I think it's just a combination of what was on hand, rather than an optimal setup). So. It'd work.

Sure there'd be more if you searched harder.

My last miata had 205 RE-11's on 15x9's. A bit of poke but honestly not bad.

I've been putting 205/50s of various flavors on 9" wheels for almost 2 years now.

I'm sold on the kit but I definitely want fully functional A/C. Wife has to ride in the car. I already have another track car that she stays away from.

Any ideas on what the A/C install would entail? You've mentioned the stock K20 compressor won't quite fit. Are you planning to use a modified bracket of some sort?

A/C kit will likely include a custom mounting bracket, custom lines, and anything minor that may be needed.

The plan is to work on the A/C kit towards the end of 2014.

They rebuild racks for electric steer. I wonder if they will do a miata rack.
