What 16x9" wheels are you going to find for under $800, hell what ones are you going to find for under $1000? 17lbs isn't bad considering a 15x8 sportmax weighs 16lbs. Your right about the 205 on a 9 though, I don't think I'm going to do that, 215 might not even be enough.

JayL are you getting more and more upset everyday? Just the other day it was like, "I know he didn't mean to sell me a bad head", and I didn't. I got all these parts second hand off a car that I knew to be a good running car and had drove myself. Car made good dyno numbers and I had no reason to believe that the assembly was shotty. I wish I could help you out, but I'm broke, heck I'm putting this group buy together and in all reality I'm not going to have the money to get a set anyway. I hope one day to have something I can offer you to make this transaction better. I could've just pm'd this, but the fact is I did everything I could to make sure it was in good working mechanical condition.

While you're at it why don't you find me a headlight without broken insides to replace the one I'm stuck with? Thanx

[email protected] if you have any questions. Call me(1-888-SR20DET/352-241-8399) or email me.


I'm not trying to yank free advertisement, so if the mods have a problem with the thread feel free to yank it down. Just figured miata/240 guys would be interested in a small but wide and not so heavy rim. Thanks for your time.

Thanks,
BG

BG drove a turboII i traded him a 240sx for it, it had a bad apex seal. I parted the motor and gave the car to this guy that is going to do all my sweet metal fab and teach me the way of the tig.
Yeah That is right about when I started getting interested in drifting, and it took me another 2+ years to actual get a car to the standards I wanted it, before I attended my first event, I still have yet to slide a miata, besides really slow stuff.
If we ever run into each other you can try them out. Your car reminds me that a NB can pull off 17s.

So did you buy these yet? Or start a GB over at CR.net? Just curious where this went. Interesting size, but wow so heavy.

They ended up only having 3 sets when I ordered mine 2 weeks ago. They will be on back order until December and at that time we will try again. They weigh 17lbs which I don't think is bad considering a 15x8 sportmax weighs 16. The pics above are of my car with the new 245/35 t1rs here i tried to use 225/45 gforces first and found them too big.
