Hmm, they look like they stick too far out in those pics. Are those with the wheels stock offset and no spacers? Maybe its deceiving, need more pics to tell.

That's my car. No spacers. 205/50/15 Dunlop StarSpecs. My fenders are rolled but not pulled, so far no rubbing at all on the street. I'll be at the track this weekend, but I probably won't run these wheels unless I cord my RA1's.

The wheels do stick out a bit due to the low +20 offset. But they're actually not much different than my other wheels, 15x9+36 TRMotorsports C3M's. I think the math says the Spooled's should stick out just 3mm more, and the C3M's are a pretty popular fitment for the Miata, so I think most people won't have an issue with the +20 offset unless they're unwilling to put a roll on their fenders, or if they're at a super low ride-height.







The rear angle picture makes the offset look the lowest, due to the shape of the rear bumper tapering in so much. But in person, it doesn't look awkward. Also, my ride height is relatively high (I run really soft coilovers because the track I go to most is very bumpy). I think with less wheel gap, the wheels would look even better, but I'd it rather handle over looks.

Hey! Thanks for replying with more pics. Looks much better now that I can get a better idea of what they actually look like. Nice car man.

I'm definitely going to grab some of these Konig wheels, just got to decide which ones I like the most now.

Got a full polish version in the works, but not a polished lip only.

That's too bad, as a polished lip and black center would look fantastic.

Get the full polish version that's coming and hit it with a rattle can or plastidip? Or spend a few bucks on getting the centers powdercoated?

Assuming the image in your sig is accurate, the red wheels would be a downgrade visually.

See, I think GT3-RS grey/red. Ditch the AE interior for black interior bits and do a couple of red accents like my mirrors (with vinyl). Pic in my sig reflects my old Enkei NT03 wheels...which I kick myself in the *** for selling, I currently have dark grey SSR C-RS wheels.
