Default 5 spoke rims for the NA?

I have been in love with 5 spoke wheels since i was a kid. So now, i want to buy a set for my miata NA. Enkei VR5 are available in the particular size i want, 15x6.5, but i want the spokes on the wheels to be straight and with a little bit of a negative offset. Are there any wheels that match that description? And, how would VR5s look on a miata? Im thinking black.

You're new here, and you don't seem to be getting this forum, so here's some free advice:

1) No one cares.
2) Go ask the clubchoadster guys?

Seriously though. If you want advice about how to improve on your car's capabilities, hang out here. If you want advice about how to make your car look a certain way, go to clubroadster. If you want a horrible mishmash of good and bad information, go to miata.net. this kind of post here will just get you trolled.

Also, get wider wheels.

Nobody wants 6.5". Nobody wants to look at 6.5" or hear about 6.5". 8" is the minimum. If you have 9" all the better. Ballers have 10" or 11".

Rota Slipstream, if you must, come in that size. But they also come in 8in.

Every miata that can fit a 15x6.5 wheel can fit a 15x8 and just go faster with 205 width tires. 15x8 also aren't significantly more expensive than the smaller widths.

And as sixshooter pointed out, the most obvious offenders (rota slips) are available in the wider size and they give the same 5 spoke look you apparently want.

Gramlights 57f looks decent if you want to use 15x7 wheels
