What are the differences, if any, then the ones sold for the actual miata?

Since I DD the car and won't go back to PS, big wheels and big tires are out, hence the predicament. This looks seriously promising! Anyone here know a good source for 5 or 10 mm spacers and longer studs? Furthermore, I assume that spacers are perfectly strong enough for high performance driving?
I think all of the current big brake kits using the billet or forged dynalites (FM/Goodwin) fit the 15" NB wheels fine. Did you not see my pictures? no spacers.

Anything that works with Corrado rotors will NOT fit without spacers.

And for me that is a problem since anything further inboard of a Corrado will not clear my adjustable tie rod end setup. I need the adjustability to cancel out some wicked bumpsteer from the steering rack relocation (LS1 k-member).

I didn't know that, I kept seeing discussions about which wheels fit and It seemed that everyone was using 15x8 or bigger. I know that Emellio says that 6UL 15x7 and 15x7.5 don't fit, and a lot of the wheels from Goodwin are specifically listed as not fitting. If the NB wheels fit with or without spacers that would be fantastic!

With your pictures, you mentioned that the clearance was quite tight, would that be a problem or is it just an observation?

I drove it for a long time with those wheels / brakes. if your wheels and brakes are flexing enough to hit... it's time for new ones.

The 5mm spacer plates are installed, and I have right at about 5mm of clearance from the spoke to the closest point on the caliper. So they worked.
