For one 35 side wall is just stupid.

And I'm trying to get some help on the back space. Some helped a little but not a straight answer.

Seriously can I just get a answer that's all I've been asking.

Who cares that I'm stock

I'm going to get 15x10 dimons rims with 225 45 15 r888. That's what I'm doing and I done care about your opinion.

Can I please get a answer.

I'm sorry but is the miata community is useless and immature? Any other forum ive ever gone to has helped and they chewed out anybody who just throws in their useless opinion constantly.

Sorry but can I just get some help. Forget I ever brought up stretching tires. Just pretend I just said I'm getting 15x10 what back space should I get.

i honestly dont see how hard it is to give some help. unless all of you really dont know what your doing or anything about cars.

the only guy so far that i have some respect for is falcon because he didn't really express his opinion he mostly tried to help. thanks.

No one runs those on here... Especially with 185's. That is why you've not received an answer. Go to CR.net. They will be able to answer your Q with many pictures and details to boot. Plus once you get them on, they will all hump your leg when you post the pictures.

All I'm asking is the back space fir a 10" rim. That's it. I'm not asking how a tire will fit or if it will be better than a wider tire or narrower rim. All I'm asking is the back space. What do you guys not use back space either? That's not cool to you? Do you just get whatever and hope it fits.

Only Diamond and other manufacturers like them use "backspacing". All others use offset. That's another reason why you haven't gotten an answer yet.

My 13x8 Diamonds used a 5" backspace, as a starting point. If you understand how backspacing works you can derive your answer from that info.

I'll also say that 10"-wide wheels and 275s are way overkill for a stock 1.6, even if you were autocrossing seriously (which you obviously aren't) you wouldn't need or want that much rubber/unsprung weight with your power.

Thank you!
I thought it was about a 5". But even if I was just given offset I could easily just find a conversion chart and work with that.
But how do the wheels fit? Like how far in or out are they from the fender?
Yeah 275 would rob so much from a stock .6 miata.
I figured a 225 would be a good size. I just wanted to have a stretch as well.
The only thing that would rob performance is the rim being a little heavier than it it fit the tire right. It would actually stiffen the side wall for slight performance benefit.

There's a chance if I get the suspension I want that I will take it out to the local auto x

But main question now is how does the 5" sit with the fender?

Also a 8" rim with a 5" back space would be 22 offset.
A 10" rim with a 5" backspace would have a -12 offset.

So anyone with a 10" with around a -12?

No. Not possible without flares. The 6UL 15x9 are +36, and even with the 275's on there they are a very tight fit.

It's not possible without flares unless you want to run buttsex camber. Which he does. Cause he's a homo.


Tom, backspacing and flushness are all interrelated to tire size, wheel size, resulting stretch, fender mods, alignment. There is no magic voodoo backspacing that will get a guy to give you head. I suggest going to CR and finding somebody with a gay enough setup for you, and replicating his work.

I do know, however... that 15x9 +0 w/ 225 R888's fit perfectly under version 1 flares.

This is where I decided to join in.

Why do you think a 35 side wall is stupid? For your information, side wall numbers actually mean a percentage of the tire's actual width...To give you proper education, I will provide an example, which can help you understand. The following is an example to help to decode a tire size like 225/45R15. The 225 is the tire width in millimeters, measured from the bottom of the bead to the bottom of the bead, the 45 is the sidewall aspect ratio, the ratio of sidewall height to tire width at the tread (indicating that the sidewall height is 45% of the tread width), and the 15 is the wheel rim diameter in inches.

Meaning...using proper math...a 275/35 tire's sidewall height is 96.25mm while a 225/45 tire's sidewall height is 101.25mm...

So you're saying a 35 sidewall is stupid, without knowing that the actual calculation for said tire's width, is a dumb statement.

(Now a 35 sidewall on a 205...you may have a proper statement there buddy)

Wtf? Oh no I ment a 455 35 10 was stupid.

Really? You just came, wrote a novel just to explain something you thought I didn't know. That came out of no where.

I do admit I was thinking of the size I was looking at and didn't read the earlier post correctly But I would still prefer a 45 or 40 with a 305 around that. With a tire that wide I would like to have a bit more side. But that's just me.

...And this is why you don't get helped here.

Why don't you just take everyone's advice and go on Clubroadster.net and ask there?

I see several folks that need to be banned from this site -- you really think making Gay jokes is cool? Yes the orginal post about putting WAY too narrow tires on WAY too wide wheels was a bit nieve but please!!!! If you pulled that on me I'd be all over the WebMaster to him delete your accounts. If you can't provice helpful comments then please be mature enough NOT to reply.
