i've seen them advertised at 14.5 lbs but i've had some guys tell me that their sportmaxes weighed less than their previous axis wheels.

i need to check prices on rota

They are a bit cheaper but heaver than 6UL's, save your money and buy a lighter wheel.

i made the mistake on my first miata of buying heavy mesh wheels for my car basically cuz i busted one of my rims up and just wanted to replace the whole set.

worst mistake ever. i gave them to my mother 2 months later so she could put them on her honda and put the daisies back on.

i do love the deep dish rim look, but i will definitely research weights closely before spending money on wheels again

yeah, you see i bet heavy wheels will make already slow NA miata feel REALLY slow. But if you got an extra 100+ hp on it i bet it does not feel too much slower ;-)

Will 205x55x15 fit on a 15x8 rim on a NA miata? I can roll the fenders a little bit?

do you have 0 offset? looks like you didnt need to roll the fenders any, at least until you decide to lower it more. those wheels look pretty huge for some reason........maybe its the tires.

anyways, i envy you right now.........let me know if the lip bends any after you run over some bumps and potholes.

The cool thing about these wheels is that they are 25 offset. So 205x50 fit very well. I think rolling of the rear fenders is a good idea. I rolled one of the fenders so far just a little bit. I still need new tires so after i get them i will see if i need to roll the other fender.
