lol thanks spike, ever since i found out they stopped making them, i decided to keep it, since i wont get much for it anyways.... down south they wont give me anything past 400$ for wheels+tires and these wheels are MINT..... one has a scuff cuz someone tried to steal it, but i'm sure centercaps are easily replacable

I love the look of these, but hate the weight and the ride.

Some 17x7 Enkei RS7's came with my car when I bought it. Not bad @ 17 lbs but not my thing. Swapped them for some 16x7 K1's later on.

I'm not serious, that was a joke. I traded the MSM for the MS6 cause having two miatas wasn't practical. Still know three or four people that have two and even three with no other vehicle to drive.. Making 2 trips to the grocery store in one day because you can't fit everything in your car sucks.

rofl.... MS6 is still a nice car besides the miata

as for the weight.... you should see how hard i try to brake sometimes spike... it's insane how much force i have to give that pedal and the wheels STILL dont lock because they're too big for the tiny brake discs.... now the 16x8's have a much better stopping force

I've still got my 1995 which pretty soon will be much faster than the MSM was.. It cost me $13,000 less than the MSM did too.

As for brakes.. Quality Drilled and slotted rotors with some PBR pads, I have NO problem braking at all. Was really worth the $$.

Or you can just go with NAPA blanks with a quality pad (hawk, axxis, etc) and have the same performance for a lot less $.

+1 on the Napa blanks or NOPIONLINE.com blanks and some good pads. Thats what I run on my turbo 94 and i have plenty of brake. Axxis ultimates and I even went to the smaller 1.6 brakes to save weight.

I guess it's a good thing they make so many wheels in so many sizes. I think 15's look like ***, wouldn't matter if they were 2 pounds....For some reason my MSM seems to handle pretty well on stock wheels and brakes quit well.
