Default so i'm rolling on my stock wheels

My es100s on my rotas are dead (bald in some areas due to autoX camber+ age+ i was dumb and only roated them back to front not side to side as well). I have also been to busy to get the 4 new ES100's mounted so I am rolling on my 2nd pair of race wheels and tires (stock 15's with Azenis). I actually like the way it feels and looks. Almost makes me want to go and mount my other set of factory 15's with the 710s and see how they do :gay:

(cliff notes 3 sets of wheels FTW)

Man i'm jealous. I'd like to have a set of stock wheels for my miata instead of these huge heavy *** konigs that the retard put on the car. Woulda been better off with the stockers. 21 pound wheels FTL

Got the tire patched (not plugged) I went to some "big name" placed and they were torque wrench WTF. So i was like put my car down I am leaving.

When to some little mexican place (yes I can say that the owners son went to HS with my sister and he is mexican). They pulled me in, did it exactly how I wanted them to, and charged me next to nothing. I hate big chains.

Although I think I will go to a chain (NTB or Discount) to get my tires mounted on my nice wheels. It will be easier to complain if they damage the polished lip.

Being in Philly i'm not sure I want to try
The current plan is to get some 6ULs in the fall when they run the next production line of them. Otherwise I'd jump right on it.
How long do you plan to have them?

When you've got 15x8 6ULs, there's no room for anything else in your Miata's life...


...unless it's 15x10 6ULs.

That's what I mean. I figure I'll wait it out as i'm leaving town for the next 4 months in about a week. Come back with enough money to do the car up how I've wanted to and then leave it be(yeah right).
