Default Axis OG-San's

Sorry for the noob question, but I was wondering if 15x8 Axis OG-San's would fit on an NA with the racinglifestyle.com flares. I really want to get some wider rims before I put those flares on there, and I think I have seen the OG-San's on a miata before, but I don't know if they were 15x8. The offset is +25, which I know is super low, but the flares add another few inches to the body. Thanks a lot guys!

Doesn't positive offset set the wheel farther into the body, negative offset equals more sticking out which is when you would need flares? Somebody here knows the answer to your question but if you want more suspension/wheel/flare knowledge, check out www.clubroadster.net

Got any pics of your car? I'm thinking my black NA with black flares and the gold 15x8 San's would be sick.

I really don't see the point in paying way more just for the name. I run rota's (worse than axis) on my tracked WRX and they hold up fine. They sell the 15x8 san's in 0 offset, and I think that will be fine.

You blind? Racing Lifestyle is a scammer. Good luck getting your hands on the flares.

My 16x8's stick out a good amount. They are also a 0 offset. They are on the car for now.....but coming off soon. I would say you could get away with 15x7's without flares. It all really depends on what you like and what you think needs flares really.

I had a set of the Racing lifestyle flares a couple years ago when he was first making them. I ended up selling them and never put them on. I take it he has fucked a couple people? Last I knew he was a small time guy, like.....he was making them in his garage or some ****. They looked good when I got them, I just decided to not put them on.
