Thanks for the link
I think they look pretty damn good.

This is basically what my car would look like

The wheels you have on the car look ok, would look better if the spokes were a darker color.

The NB wheels look correct. I'd be more concerned with the luggage rack I went through great pains to have mine removed!

Man that is a long antennae. Those wheels don't look that bad. Though the NB ones look great.

Those luggage racks come in handy. My roommate and I went to road atlanta for petit le mans my freshman year and took his car. The 4 room tent we took got strapped on the trunk via the luggage rack.

something with the curves on the '99 rims flow with the car so much better.

I like the pipes in your second pic... with the slight angle to them... reminds me of early 5.0 Mustangs, very nice!

Thanks. The muffler was actualy from a Camaro and I had a section of tailpipe removed then rewelded back together to narrow it down to fit the miata's ***.

It sounds really good. I get a lot of compliments.

Hahaha yeah man i remember you. You're the only other turbo miata owner i've ever met in person. That's hilarious because I was thinking to myself I wonder what happened to that guy after he moved to FL. I actually commented on your thread when you got your new wheels. Funny that never clicked. PM sent
:End thread jack.
