I already rolled them but I think my FM/AGX combo doesn't help any. With the 16x8's in the rear and the 15x7's in the front I can drive around like a regular car. If I get just barely on the boost and the *** end squats down....forget about it. I have chunks missing out of the tires from getting so chewed up on the rear fenders. If I ignore that fact and **** around, the tires start to smoke like crazy. The 16x8's in the front wont work at all.

It really sucks and its been something that's bothered me since I put them on. Now that I have the money I want to get a nice set of wheels, good all around tires, and swap my suspension for a Tein setup. I am pretty sure I will get the nickel 6UL's. Unless Emilio makes a matte black 6UL, then I don't know for certain.

I tried to photoshop a white miata with a black hardtop on 949's website and make it mariner blue with a black hardtop, but that was a no go. The whole picture turned blue every time I tried so I gave up. I'll attach the picture if anyone could hook it up and make it mariner, just to give me an better idea.

Is this helpful? I used the picture in your sig as a base for the blue, but when I added the shadowing back in it got a little washed out.

Thanks man, I watched a tutorial on youtube and finally did one and got a similar result. I think because the miata I am using is white it doesn't show many shadows, gloss, etc. I could be wrong.....I don't know much about PS.

I'm gonna wait until spring and get a set of 6ULR's.....in nickle of course.
