Definitely not any standard Miata wheel. Just because it came off a Miata doesn't mean it's a Miata wheel.

Those are STO wheels, I have no clue what year or anything, but STO sounds right

STO was only made in 97! STO meaning (Still The One)

Wernt they the last ones to come off the lines when they ended the NA chassis?

Looks like you figured it out bond, thank you

I understand why i have never seen these before with them only building 1500 ( yes wonton the las 1500 sold in the US). Makes me wonder why anyone would seperate them from the car.

Cause it's a specialty Miata, no one really cares. They're a cheap, RWD, fun, light car. We all appreciate a clean example of a Miata, but I don't think many of us on here are die hard Miata enthusiasts.

Oh, and as a noob, don't give a subscribing member with 2500 posts attitude, it won't end well for you. I didn't see your welcome thread, so welcome.

c-note...yes, those are Miata wheels...they look great on your car BTW. Always had a spot for Mk1's..would love to see one with a crazy 3SGTE swap
Don't mind GayTon....his fingers are faster than his brain and he is about as intimidating as a housefinch

And Sean...STO stands for Special Touring Option.

Those wheels were stock on the STO's and they also came on the M editions in '96 (which they made a lot more of).

No dum-dums; STO = "**** taken off"
Its more or less an M-Edition, except they ran out of parts; none of this **** is on the STO

Torsen
Rear Sway Bar
ABS
Cruise control
Power Antenna
Premium Sound

(And other random **** that specifically makes an "m" an "m"...such as the "m" badge)

Those are definitely the wheels I've seen on a '96 M-Edition. Really good looking wheels in my opinion.
