just wait a month or two. personally, im at 6th stage of my build and my current miata has been n/a, then turbo, then bigger turbo, then turbo with built motor, then stock daily driver, and now its finally a 2.0L 11:1 track/dd car. all that within a year and a half and without even seeing it for months. has been on jack stands since about 2 weeks after i got it

you could keep the wheels and stretch 195/50/15's on 'em and get flamed by everyone on here. (but they would probably clear with a little fender roll and pull)

or the better route: sell'em, buy new wheels and proper sized tires. with the right wheels/offset you can do 225/45/15's all around. or if you wanna sacrifice good handling for hot rod looks, you can do 205/50/15 frt. and 225/45/15 rear which keeps the o.d. pretty close. just get a good quality max perf. summer tire if your worried about traction. the new hankook rs3's would be a good choice and are available in those sizes.

lastly, if you have real flares (like tuckin'99) put those on, chop those f'kin fenders (who's car is it anyway?) and buy 225/45/15's all around and who cares what anybody says. if it makes you happy, that's all that matters in the end.
good luck

I think it's funny that you built this car to go fast and are looking for et's when you dynomated the "whole car". By doing this you just killed a good part of the performance that you built in to htis car.

I gues I will never understand some people. Then again I never understood drag racing.

Have a great day,
Jared
