Default Much gayness: Tein S.Tech and 15x8 +0 Wheels running 195's

I am looking to find out what tein s.techs will look like with my wide, super low offset wheels. I bought the Sportmax 002's because I kinda dig the old school look they bring. Nobody around here has a miata, let alone a miata rocking these rims. I was told on clubroadster that the tein s.techs will look like crap with these wheels, I was wondering if anyone would be so kind as to post up a pic of a miata running 15x8 +0's with tein s.techs.

Thanks

not a fan of club roadster. the people on there all run identical setups... they all seem like clones to me! haha. thanks for responding though, if i had any respect for the opinions of people on CR i'd totally do that.

Thanks though, i know a lot of people on there are running +0's!

Some people on here will give you **** right off the bat for not being like them, but that's slowly starting to go away. Its best to just ignore the comments rather than ask why. With time, you'll learn why....

Listen man, I have sportmax 002's in the 16x8 on my car and I really do love how they look. But they preform like ****! Anytime the car gets into to boost and the rear dips down forget about it. The tires rub and smoke like a ************ and ruin the drive.

Alot of people with the wide/low offset wheels either cut/roll their fenders, and/or have to run crazy camber to get them to work. Maybe the 15's will fit a little better, but not by much.

I am getting rid of mine and going with a nice regular offset wheel so I can enjoy the car under boost again. 1 year without driving the car like I should because of these wheels....is not worth it.

your first response was the best advice you'll get. I'm certain .02% of the members here may have Tein S springs and 0 offset wheels. I'm sure <2% of us even 0 offset wheelzzzzzzz. And if they are running 15x8s they certainly aren't running no thin dicked 195s.

You want to run 195s on 8" wheels, and you're worried that the springs are crap? :gay:

CR is pretty much the authority on the sportmax wheels. Didn't you notice how 80% of the members have them? If they say it will look like crap then it will.

Thanks.

If I roll the fenders I guess I can put much larger tires on. I already bought the 195's because I was told by the people I purchased the rims from that thats the size that will fit the rim and still go on the miata with no rubbing. I guess I have to find a way to exchange these tires for bigger. Should 205/50's do the job and eliminate the lip of the rim hanging out? I like the stretched look, I realize that the 195's look like **** because of the lip hanging out.

205s will still be stretched on an 8" rim.
(note, these are fairly wide 205s too...)
