What do you guys think of these wheels? I found a set for $200 with less than 1000 miles.

That's a classic wheel, and they look great on Miata's. I hate them in white, but that's just me. $200 is crack ***** pricing. What's size and offset are they?

They are 15x7. Bearing in mind that i know nothing about wheels/tires, i dont know the offset.

200 would be a steal for those wheels. Even though they are considered inexpensive, most places have the wheel for 100-125 dollars. I seriously am considering these as I want to save a little dough in the future replacing tires on a 15 inch wheel insead of my stock 17s.

In 15x7 4x100 they came/come in +38 (what you want) and +45.

The super rare 15x8 4x100 came in +32 which is what you want. There is also a +22 which is what you do not want unless you have flares.

if you pass on those wheels and don't hook someone from this forum up with the seller, you will get banned for life, not from this forum, life in general

$200 is a steal, i would delay my mortgage to get these at this kinda price...
good luck, i hope you get your $$ in place

They are cheap for what you get @ the Tirerack @ 105$ each + shipping.

Pretty much the best wheel around the 100$/wheel price point.

If the 6UL had never been produced, I'd probably be on 15x8 K1s.
