thanks. they are watanabe 14x6.5 with a +18.

i have a friend who is a gunny in the usmc on his 3rd tour in iraq. he is having his miata serviced in ATL. he was concerned about driving the car to california in january when he comes home. our mutual friend is a lt. col in the usaf who was recently transferred to ramstein to command a wing. HE couldn't use them because he is going to have a BBK installed on HIS miata. i offered a trade for my SSRs with new-ish T1Rs.

please keep the gunny in your thoughts and prayers. he has a relatively short time left and i hope i get to see him soon. his wife and kids are anxious. i will also be assisting him install a turbo system when he makes it out to california.

i'm hoping that i can keep them then make them look like this:
