I can't wait to get mine. Nickel is dead sexy on any color Miata. What specs on those? I think I want some 8'' for some 225 action.

Assuming it doesn't rain yet again, I should have pics up. I figure on 4-5 hours to install the new springs, install new camber bolts all around, and replace the front driver side lower control arm. Then off to the alignment shop and have the car detailed. And then I'll just sit and stare at it for awhile with the new wheels on scared to drive it around in fear of hurting them! I waited over 2 months for them, it will be hard to even see them get dirty.

6UL FTW! I just wish I could afford to replace my almost-slicks RS-2s so I could DD them again instead of the 14" wheels with 185s.

What tires are you putting on them?

I know my new Rotas aren't anything special, but I still like things not to die. I hit a pothole yesterday, jarred my face. i was going to cry if I bent my brand new wheels.

Congrats on rims! The s.tech's are awesome. I've had them in mine for about 4 years now and they're still strong.

Are you kidding? ....I love those Circuit 8s. I'm so gonna bite your style when I can afford it.


Congrats on the 6ULs, nickel is awesome on those. The Tein S-Techs are great springs, but definitely look into some 36mm bumpstops, NB mounts or both. Mine ride great with the AGXs, but run out of travel real fast. I find myself constantly bouncing off the bumps (54mm with NA mounts) on anything but great condition roads. Also, some folks have the rear sit a little too low for their tastes with those. My rake turned out fine, and I have some 1/2" spacers made just for that if yours doesn't suit you.

It's currently sitting on a 2002 Sport suspension, so it should be okay, we will see once the springs go on.

You can't be as thrilled over some lousy wheels as those sextastic t-bolt clamps I sent you!

Damn I didn't need to see those pics. Now I've really got to paint my wheels. I bought my nickel 6ul's 2nd hand with a whole bunch of brake dust corrosion on them. Gotta make em pretty like yours. Just haven't figured out how to get DIY paint to look like Emilio's nickel finish!

In some jurisdictions they are liable for any damage if the pothole was reported and they haven't fixed it.

the new center caps are garbage...but holy **** that wheel looks awesome. I love the new nickel. I need a set in 9" so I can run nickel on one side, bronze on the other.

G-force sport 205/50 front, 225/50 rear, hoping to wear the rears out fast so I can get some 225/45's.
