Man 15x9s would be sick in the rear, be a bummer not being able to rotate tires though.

Who is Emilio? And 9 or 10" wheel in the back of a Miata? ****. I wanna know.

I've seen some sick pics of the RPF1's on the NC's, these kinda look like those. Is one a knock-off of another?

Emilio has alluded to making a 15x9 that could fit FRONT AND BACK, or a 15x10 that would fit the back only.

I changed my mind. I'm going to get another set of stockers, and buy sway bars, engine and diff mounts, "sport" brakes for the front, and dyno time.

I don't think I'm ready for r-compound rubber yet, so I'm going to also buy a TV instead.

There's really no point. Its easy to snap a lug off when only one holds the wheel.

Dude if you are serious about racing, buy the right equipment and get R's. Running street tires on the track is false economy. An RA-1 will last and last and be able to take the heat and abuse.

I'm more worried about it masking bad habits and poor technique. I think I'm going to run one more set of azenis before I switch to ra-1's. Do you think 250whp on a 205 r-compound is going to be challenging? Will the 225 give me that much more grip in terms of tire spinnage?

I run 215/13 V710 and I seriously need more tire. This is autocross where there are serious demands put on traction.

RA-1 isn't going to mask bad habits. By that logic you should ditch the Azenis and run a Kumho Supra 711. Besides once you put that turbo in the car you are going to have to relearn how to drive, and it'll be harder.

Then I'll consider 205 ra-1's for the 15" stockers.

225/45 would be the better choice.

Well, that's like a $700 difference. I'm tired of spending money.
