****! I ordered the 6UL 15x8 matte black this morning. I didn't want to get the 9's because I already have some 205 RA1's and seeing as I run used race tires the 8's give me the option of the 205 or 225. I picked these for a couple reasons, even though if your on a super budget that TR is a good value.

1) I've wanted a set for years and it's my christmas present
2) 949racing supports the miata scene
3)their lighter by 10lbs a set
4)double purge
5)its boss
6)spoolin2bars is ordering the TR and I want at least one thing nicer than he has...

i've had 15x8 +15mm offset, so jacob already knows what the offset does to affect the steering feel and handling. it's nice that nigase wanted to warn him about the horrific dangers he could encounter but it really wasn't necessary or asked for in the first place. he's def. not a newb which wasn't said but was implied by the warnings of iminent danger of offset and DUN DUN DUN...... SCRUB RADIUS!!!! i was reading the posts and before he ever said it, i knew it was leading to this. it's not like he's talkin' about doing 15x10 -27mm offset for god sakes. sounds more like nigase is the newb trying to impress with his vast knowledge of the blk. art of susp. tuning.

Idiotic. I'll repeat what you obviously can't comprehend:

"I didn't say anything about clearances or launching you into a tire wall. I didn't even say not to do it."

"This just doesn't make sense... scrub radius tuning is a preference, not a good or bad thing. It's not "butt hurt" of me to say "it's your car, do which option you like better."

I've given up on the rest of this thread, but that post was far too stupid to ignore.

Niggase, signing out.
