Talking Noob no more?

I live in the deep South of Louisiana and have been a Miata enthusiast since I purchased my white '93 back in Dec. of '06.

I am
here on the forum due to the fact that I have purchased some parts, namely wheels, that I wished I had more information on before I did. I hope to be replacing them soon with Enkei RPF1 15x7 -41 offset with Toyo T1R 215/45/15's.

When I do this I will lose 3.5+lbs of unsprung weight per corner or should I use 195/50/15's instead to lose another pound or so?

I plan to add a turbo, plus other needed upgrades, as soon as it is financially possible. In the mean time I plan to do a lot of reading on this forum and only a little bit of posting so that I do not ask too many dumb questions.

Well later y'all.

Holy fuggin tiny text batman.

Sorry, I'm like 128 years old and just can't see that ****. Or I've had to many dogfish heads.

Welcome to the forum. There is a LOT of wheel info on, and most of it should be ignored. You came to the right place. I run the light 14" BBS SE rims, so have never been motivated to research, but I know most people put junk wheels with crazy offsets before they realize the ill effects it will have on handling.

What are your plans in the way of a turbo build?

I'm 20 and have horrible vision. Dual monitors FTW.

Also, ctrl+ makes all text bigger on firefox, apple+ on mac with safari. Internet Explorer is gay.

Edit: Welcome to the Forum, from one noob to another!
