Default 1993 Limited Edition BBS wheels with centercaps.

Asking 400 dollars plus shipping, which is reasonable given the rarity of this wheel. The lightest wheel ever made for a factory miata, at 9.5-10.5 lbs these suckers are featherweight. 14x6 I do believe.

They aren't perfect, they do have some curb rash, but all center caps are intact and the removal tool is included.

You come across as a scam artist when you give out bad info.

The wheels are 14x6 and actually weigh around 9.5-10 lbs.

Are these different than the other set you have listed in your other for sale thread?

You have to realize that its been a while since I have owned a 1st generation miata, and nearly all NB's are something another by 7's.

Okay, I pulled the book out entitled "Mazda Miata; Performance Handbook, by Norman H, Garrett the 3r.
The 92-93 BBS wheels weight isn't listed, but the 15" 95 BBS apparantly weigh 9.5 lbs, but this must be a typo becaues i'm seeing 12.3 lbs elsewhere, I guess this makes the Author of this book a scam artist...

Sorry, but that "coming across as a scam artist" comment sorta pissed me off, because I have sold many many things on this forum before and I have always backed up what I sold, and to the best of my ability, tried to make things right if I was wrong...

According to Miata.net they weigh 9.5-10.3 lbs a piece, which makes it the lightest production wheel ever for a Miata.

Same ones, I may have mistaking the rim width in the other post as well. These are extremly light wheel and are 14x6, not 14x7

You should edit your original post with correct information. Will make things easier for potential buyers.

Fine. Be pissed off. Because I hate it when folks try to sell something as something else. Wider and lighter are something most folks want from a wheel. Saying those wheels are wider and lighter than they really are is wrong.

And you portray that I intentionally meant to make that mistake? I corrected it, okay. But use better tact or send me a message with a little bit cooler wording. Such as, "I believe your wrong, they actually weigh 9.5-10.3 lbs and are 14x6's, not 14x7's, or 14x6.5's." My feedback of 100% will speak for itself. (and if I actually left feedback and vice versa, I would probably have more like 50 happy sells) If someone were to purchase these wheels and they did indeed turn out not to be as described, I would issue a refund in full and pay for the shipping back to my facility.

Afterwords, leave your citations and a source so I can verify the information as correct and make the change, as I did yesterday. I'm not trying to scam people by selling them a product that wasn't as described, but at the same time, i'm certainly not a walking talking Miata library when it comes to these things. Even after ten years of ownership. (one 91 BRG, 93, 93 LE, 97, two 10th Anniversaries, and a 04 MSM) I get wheel weights and specs confused sometimes...

I'm closing this thread, opening a new one. Can a moderator please delete this thread?
