No you're not..i don't relly like them all that much either. I mean i could live with em seeing as how they're 9.5" and wearing 245's but i think they would've looked 10X better in silver rather than that magnesium look.

Go floss your teeth with my *** hair, ok? Nobody said he had to put ******* nine and a half inch wheels on a Miata. If they don't make tires that wide, get smaller wheels.

I swear, shiny paint + expensive wheels + a nice camera = recipe to get people to ride your nuts on the Internet.

So you are saying that if you have a badass car, and take good pictures of it, people will like it?


I agree.

No fighting ladies! Heres the reason for the 9.5's; I wanted the wheels to sit flush with the fenders and run the 245's. If I would have built an 8.5 or 9" wide wheel the tire would sit square on the wheel and not be contoured to the shape of the fenders thus causing big rubbing issues. There is no way to correct this through fender pulling or flares as you going to run into the same exact issue again with the contour. 245's will easily fit under the stock body work with a less agressive setup being 9.5's, 9's, 8.5's, or 8's but with the wheels being flush with the fenders there's no other choice.

The closeup shot of the fender you notice quite a bit of the rim shell poking out but it's just our (CCW) wheel shells. If you look for pics on the web of 245's mounted on 9.5's (alot of G35 and 350z owners run that setup on the front in 19's) there not really that strectch and still bead up to the face of the wheel.

Thanks for all the compliments!

I'll trade you a set of those wheels for a intercooler that fits the look of that car. Really, change that thing. Immediately.

Other than the IC...dddaaammmmnnnn. I want those wheels. I like the ARP hardware too

I think the wheels themselves are badass. However there's just something about the way they look on the Miata that dosent sit right. Of course thats just my opinion.

Im surprised nobody has asked this. How much do they weigh?

I'm not one for polished lips, but those wheels look pretty sick. You definitely have good taste.
