Default New rims and tires

Alrighty i thought about it and im selling my 17's because ive heard all the talk there heavy ect...so now im getting the 16" ADR Concept Pro's, with the rt-615 falken azines tire. My buddys getting them for me at his cost so very cheap. Im wondering if anyone ever seen these on a miata before? Do they look good, or about the tire, weight im not a rim tire guy so i really dont know that much about them, any advice would help. Thanks

Stop wasting your money with ADR

As for the tires there ok, it depends on what you will be using them for.

Why not get some 6uls i think for the money they are great. If you want the lightest wheel for the $ get some RPF1's like me or buy my RPF1's so i can get some 6UL's

I'd say they are pretty damn good...they don't last long but they stick well until they get hot...then they still stick well...just get the 'greasy' feeling everyone whines about...and they do OK in the rain...

but its a miata = sports car = deserves a good, sticky tire

10k is not lasting long?

Ive done 3 track days on mine as well as 3k miles daily driving and there is plenty of meat left. I just wish i would have gone with something more aggressive. But then again my car is daily driven so i cant really get myself to buy a nice set of Nt01's or anything since they will die fast :(
