Default 13" Magnesium Panas

Not sure if there will be any interest for these here or not but here goes:

Ultra light magnesium panasports...these are light, VERY light at < 8 lbs a piece. They're 13 X 6 with 205/60/13 sumitomo HTR's with excellent tread. only letting them go b/c they won't fit over 1.8 brakes. Let me know what you've got to trade, looking for any miata related stuff really (roll bar/hrnesses mainly) but I'm also looking for any 15" or smaller wheels (no club roadster special 0 offsets) any suspension/performance parts.





Seen sets of these wheels go for 12-1300 in the past with no problem but I can't seem to get rid of them for anything so make an offer.

Thts what I've been getting for 6+ months now... "I love these f-in wheels, but i can't pull the look off" or "I love these wheels but my brakes are too big" oh and then there is the honda crowd "wanna trade me for some Si's or blades?" I'm starting to get discouraged.

The black on the inside of the lip is no longer there. It was just brake dust and i spent almost an hour cleaning them up today.

for someone who talks a lot about the rules, you should follow them and post a price.

What do they look like on a miata?

What does a smaller rim benefit? Improved handling, improved straight line?

He kind of sort of did. He's asking for a trade.

I put what they are worth...that's close enough for most people, I mean i could hve just spent the extra .2 seconds and put 1200 OBO but considering I'm looking more to trade them I'd rather not.

I'll see if I can't find a picture of my old 1.6 when they were on it and send it to you. I saw an increase in handling performance but I also had 185's on before and these are 205's so that's probably got the bulk to do with it. I liked them more for the light-weight aspect than anythign else, at ~8 pounds they fit the light-weight bill pretty well.
