Track car.

HPDE or wheel to wheel racing. If wheel to wheel it is likely regulated by whatever rule book you are using. Staggered fitments are rare in Miata's. I don't know of anyone here running staggered.

Oh yeah I forgot to add...

"Search" is your friend.

Best with no concern for price? Emilio's wheels in 15x8 are hard to beat. If price is no concern, then perhaps Volks or Work wheels, but they are going to run you 4 times the price.

Get 13x9-10's'' and run 275's all the way around. Or do the 15x9-10's from 949 racing and run the 275's

Best is going to be the widest, so 15x9 or 15x10, but those require some cutting to get them to not rub, if you don't want them to rub, then you're looking at 15x8.

Look for 949 Racing in our vendor's section.


What is a "wat?" Are you too ******* lazy to hit the "h" key? You did it twice.

Can't beat the 15X9 6ul for the money.

If I didn't have a budget:
Kodiak 15x10 with 275 hoosiers.
