you need some suspension help....stat. I don't care if you cut your springs... anything looks better than stock.

IMO take off the spoiler, get it lowered, and it will look how you want a proper miata to look.

Eh, it looks ok. I think thats a bit too much meat for the 7'' wheels, but I guess its ok. I also couldnt stand not having matching tires. I loved my gForce Sports on my RX7, I think they were 225/50/16's. Pretty good handling tire, and was tough to break traction with them.

I think the rims are nice except for the red color. way too many ricers in blue civics around here running red rims that makes me hate that. otherwise not bad man.

The wheels look good...was thinking about those or XXR 501's. Like everyone else, not a huge fan of the red...but I do like something that stands out...

Seriously, they aren't joking...cut the springs or we will essay! lol

Work with what you have. Lower the rear and loose the spoiler. That alone makes it looked jacked up in the rear. Add some red fender stripes like the old vettes to tie in the color of the wheels and you are set.

KEEP that SPOILER! Or give it to me. I'll gladly use it. The mud flaps look nice too. I

LOWERING IT IS A MUST! (unless you want to keep factory ride)

The car transforms into tough, and the rims will look right then. The red will lokk mean.

I think that is a very nice looking car. And lowering it will finish the puzzle.

Springs are too cheap to start cutting them. I wouldn't do that. Just watch ebay and the miata forums.

My brother has a red S/C, and white Turbo miata with that same spoiler and they are lowered. I'll see if he can send me some pics. They look tough. And yuppies are always asking. What type of car is that?????? Oh that can't be a miata. GOOD JOB..
