I currently have 16x7 but if was going to do it again, I'd go 16x7 and 16x8 staggered. You can also go 16x8 with thinner tires up front in that size wheel.

I personally like 205s up front and 225s in the rear.

Do us a favor and kill yourself. Seriously, don't post here anymore or I'm going to beat your ***. There are other forums for your stretched rubber / staggered tire ------ry.

Dude what did I tell you about making threads on here? People here dont like stretched tires, dr1fting, and most of the other ricer bullshit. They LOVE making miata's fast. Get some 16x8's or 15x8's with some sticky tires and call it a day. Just my opinion
