Hey I have a soft top on my 96 still, tires 14" stock all season. I get leaks from the Windows. Does anyone know where I can get new weather stripping for it? Also if anyone has cool winter setup s that would be great too

Rosenthal Miata for the weather stripping.

Since you didn't tell us where you live, I'll assume Miami, FL. Given that the average temps in the winter seem to hover around 80 degrees, I'd recommend making sure you have a good coolant mix and check your A/C pressures. Consider dumping the all-seasons for a nice set of performance rubber. I'm a fan of Hankook RS3's, but I'm not sure about in your rim size.

Did you know that this forum is a community of people?
People that like to communicate with each other and not just jump in and start blasting away stupid lazy questions all over the place?

I know right? Shocker

Jacob, you're not going to last long here if you make a habit of starting threads like this.

Winter setup s ?

Most store the car in a warm snuggly place away from the road salts to minimize rust.

Get megasquirt and turn the Revlimit down to 2378 rpm and then you have partial traction control for winter driving.
