Because it is a lot better then 4 sets of 2 tires...

Is that a tire tail he is using? Anyone used and liked those? My trailer I used in the US is illigal in Sweden. (Nansy-state)

Everytime I see a Miata with one of those I laugh cause it really makes the car lift in the front real bad...not sure how safe that is either.

I wish 13's would clear the 1.8 brakes.

Tiretails kick ***. I gotta pick one up this year.

13's DO clear 1.8 brakes, just not all 13's.

The car pictured is in our local club, makes 270+ whp.

They do, providing you buy the correct wheels. I've got Rota RB, and they clear the normal 1.8 brakes with ease.

Thanks for clearing that up, I have always been told they won't without shaving down my Calipers, which was a no-no for me.
Again, thanks, this just opens a few more options for me again.
Jay, can you PM me more info on your wheels? Specs, links?

They aren't light, heavier than a Helium. So I'd say about 14lbs, maybe 15lbs.
