Default Wheel Fitment

I was looking at some Panasport 14x7 wheels, 38mm offset, but I have a sneaky suspicion that they will not fit on with my 2004 Sport Brake setup I have. My car is a 1996, but I don't think that matters much anyways. What are the guidelines for figuring this out? Or anyone know already if they will fit or not?

Of note also... I had a hell of a time keeping the stick on wheel weights on my 14x7 panasports. I kept melting them off... SOOO annoying.

Thanks a million guys, guess I am going to have to look for some good sized 15" wheels, is there a particular offset that usually will fit with the sport brakes, or it's just a hit or miss based on the wheel?

On a related note what wheel/size would fit over corrado swapped rotors? That's my plan for the distant future but wheels will likely come before that. Any 15"?

there is only one wheel as far as miatas are concerned. Why do people fight it?

Throw a piece of metal tape over them.
