Default hard-top pictaurs, and wheel color suggestions

just whoring through






I'm thinking about this color (i'd kill a man for these wheels btw):

on 01 wheels.
or anthracite

or something brighter:

I'm leaning toward the first wheel, rattle can spray paint of course.

The site is down right now though. I need the single color outline pic of a miata, so they can do the "I heart my [miata pic]"

bronze or gold. yellow will compliment your green very well. anthracite will look too washed out because the green is so dark.

I'm a bit bias, but these are pretty darn hard to beat in terms of price $79 at Edge Racing, weight 12 lbs, and color....

yes, it looks good on the racecar because of the size of the wheel. it also has very low profile tires and a shallow offset. imagine the wheels smaller with higher profile tires and they will look a bit odd. the gold/bronze will accentuate the wheels under the green and will punch up the wheelbase more, making it look lower and longer. it's a visual/optical illusion.

good luck either way.

Yeah it looks just like a 95-98 Eclipse, but the color is right. I Think the car would look good blacked out. I dont like the Yellow.
