Will they fit: 16x7.5 ET25 with 215/50/16s?
I just left a deposit on my first miata ('91 silverstone with GReddy+IC). Taking delivery in 3 weeks.

I'm looking for a set of 16 inch wheels and found some nice 4x100 Kosei K1s off an E30 bmw. However, they're ET25, which I know will put them a little far out.

The car is pretty low on Eibach springs. I'm more than willing to roll my fenders, but will these things fit? For reference, I think these will be roughly equivalent to an 8 inch wheel at ET31/32. From what I can find through search, ET36 is minimum for 16x8s? Do those 4 mm really matter if I'm willing to roll?

I think you should be willing to pull out also to make them fit (the fenders).

Well. Partly answered my own question in this thread on miata.net:


Those are 15x8 ET25. I can't tell though: Are those fenders pulled?

The issue is that you want a 215/40-16, not a 215/50-16. Ditch the tires and do a 205/40-16, and you should be able to make a 16x7.5 +25 fit with standard camber and rolled fenders.

Thanks Savington. I'd heard of people running 225/45s, so I was hoping I could get away with the 50 series.

But if I can get away with a roll only, I'll go for 205s instead.

it will def. fit. maby slightest roll. not even a pull. I'm rocking the same setup as the green na above. 15x8 15offset, no crazy problems and crazy slammed

Savington 03-02-2008 10:57 PM

225/45-16 is already an inch taller than stock. Hell, my 225/45-15s are a little taller than stock (like .3")

With a 225/45/15 tire what is the offset range that fits without rolling? Or at that width do you have to roll?

225/50s are for monster trucks...
