Default 13x9 on NA?

im looking at diamond racing 13x9 wheels with r888's 185 60 13



i would love to run a 13x10 with a 205 60 13 but i don't think thats going to happen.
i will also be lowering my car with coilovers.
oh yeah and this is on a 1.6

i have a couple questions.
1. should the back space be 5"? thats what i read somewhere.
2. i plan to roll the fenders but will i need a pull as well?

i have been searching for about 3 days, and cant seem to find what i'm looking for. I don't plan to get into any autox or anything like that. just want to take these huge *** 17" that it came with the car off and get a bit lower. i am looking for better handling but its not like i'm going to be racing or anything like that, just a fun street car.

I have 185/60/13s on my 13x6.5 enkie apaches and they sit perfect no stretch, no bulge. Stretching a tire that size onto a 9" wheel is going to defeat the performance gains. If your ok with that please visit clubrodster.net, you will fit in perfectly.

I have 225/45/13's on my Panasport 13x9.5 right now and they have a tiny bit of stretch. Not really much to be honest and the look is perfect. 185 = *****

For refrence, 225/45/12 Hankook's on my Panasports.

Old pics from my n/a / CSP days.

225-45-13 on 13x8 Diamond racing wheels.




You want the wheels an inch wider and the tires 40mm narrower? Are you high?

Well I'm going for more looks. That performance but still want the little performance gain.

I think I'm leaning more to 15x9 with 225 45 if I want to go crazy I'll make it a 15x10
I was going to do 13s for weight and price but I think I like how the 15s look better

I was really just asking about the back space and about the pull not so much about opinions. If this was my 240 I would try to get a 315 on the 9" and make it fit. Also do you really need more than 225 or heck thats probably robs performance from a stock miata. It's not like there's anything bad about a stretch. Just looks better to me for a street or show car.

Can I ride a cow? Yes sure, but...

First, R888 dont stretch, it is performace tyre that has hard sidewall.
Second, R888 are 100 treadwear, you'll wear them in that kind of street use in no time.

You know that Toyo makes 135/15 for cv2 CitroŽns ? wouldnt that rock?

so can anyone tell me the back space?

i read 5" but idk how that fits. so can anyone tell me the back space needed to fit the 15x10 front and rear? to fit similar to these? maybe a little closer to the body. 4.7" 4.5"?

and stretching the r888 has been done. so ill give it a shot.



no need of opinions. just want info i know what im doing so your opinion isnt needed.

thank you.

Sorry, no ******* stretch looking homo wheels allowed.

My wheels are 13x9.5 w/ 5.5'' backspace. 5'' would be better.

I recommend Club Roadster. They like big black wiener over there, as well.

ok how about this.
hey im getting a 15x10 rim. im putting a 275 on them. im going for the poke look to have a little sticking out to get a wider stance for slight better handling. what should i expect for back space to get a little poking out of the body just a slight poke like maybe around 1/4"?

Did you seriously just 180 your position because we made fun of you? That's even gayer than buying fanboi superhomo wheels with buttsexy stretched tires...


Further, the only things you can get in 275/35-15 are actual race tires. Which will last you a week of commuting.
