C8s and these 5 spokes are going up for sale. C8s no longer have 615s on them.

Anyone else think 16's look BIG on a miata?

K1's are pimp. I have a set of gray 15x7's.

Since when are 949 valve's baller? What does my 8x 949 valves on 15x9 6UL's make me then? A Mega-Baller™ ?

Do you actually use the extra 4 valve stems for there intended purpose? if so does it really make that big of a difference or is it just hype on the street?

Also miatamania, if you want to send me a PM with more info on the C8's I'd appreciate it.

super baller.

A friend of mine made the joke that since my car is a piece of ****, $4 valve stems qualify as baller status....

Kinda like making fun of $500 cars w/ $10,000 wheels.

I have 16x7's, I like the look, not too big if you have small height tires ie. 40's.

Oh yeah, the K1's are nice, I bet you got them for a steal knowing you....

I assume the C8s are the ones he bought from Ben???
If so, those wheel will reel in some serious bank one day, they got history here.

Looks great man! I've always been a big fan of K1s. I have a brand new set of 15x7 +33 K1s waiting to on my Miata. Hmm come to think of it I have a set of them for our S13 and the G20 also. I guess I'm a Kosei addict lol
