Picked these up from Ben a few weeks ago, the GTI needs longer/tuner lug bolts and I'm to cheap since its not completely fixed at the moment. So I figured what the hell and tossed them on the miata, I love they way they look.

Thats the only picture I have, I'll post another in a bit.

I think its just because my car is a bit lower. My roommate is out right now w/ it so I'll snap some more pictures later on with better lighting.

Thanks for the positive comments guys!

They look really good with your color combo, on a silver car they look kinda plain, like OE. (no offense Ben)

Those are 16s. And they aren't that heavy Paul, believe it or not.

Y8s, the c8s are in my room getting repainted as we speak...trying to figure out what tires to buy for them...205/40...or 215/45 Azenis...

Thats what I'm leaning towards...figure it can't hurt traction or gearing to.

+1 i really dislike when wheels have more and one lug pattern, bothers me for some reason. but they do look a lot better on the purple car than on silver
