I don't think they're too big, I'm just not a fan of the style. There are some Konig Heliums in the classifieds with some Falkens for $500 I think.

Look fine to me. The 350 on the otherhand....

I dont think I would ever go any bigger then 15's on a miata. Maybe, just maybe if I got an awesome deal on some Works or Gram Lights, I'd go 16's but it would have to be a pretty sweet deal.

yeah the 949s! If i wasnt so cheap I'd rock them. My '99s will have to suffice, if I ever end up getting them from Tom.

I'm probably going to just dump the exhaust under the center of the car, before the rear end...pointed down.

I went straight out the back with a 3" exhaust. There's enough room for a 13"L muff between the subframe and chassis rear. Flanged just past the diff for tail pipe swapping. Have straight pipe on in photo- turbo style muff on it now. Figured I'd try it since the bumper was damaged (scraped) from being rear ended. The heat plate was a mock-up, but will get some 18ga. stainless cut.

I know, just saying they're available. I'm close enough to pick them up with $25 in gas so that's $125 saved in my case. Though i'll not be buying them. I like my wheels.
