Default 6UL Identification

Bought a Miata yesterday because it was cheap and had a set of 6ULs on it. They're first gen silver. The rear appear to be wider than the front. Are there any obvious casting markings or other ways to identify size and offset? The first gen had some different offsets available.

I haven't measured the rim width yet. I just got it home late last night, and haven't had a chance to do any inspection yet.

Wait, wait. Are you trying to side step the fact that you bought another miata? This thread title is deceiving.

The specs are stamped into the hub area in the little recesses, this is on the inside so you'll have to take the wheel off to see it.

Yup. Funny I never noticed that before, but I guess I also never needed to look.
F-15x7 et25
R-15x8 et36

As far as this Miata goes, I'm planning to keep the wheels and maybe the stereo. The rest of the car is for sale. If anyone is looking for a cheap Miata....

Very high miles, but runs and drives and the air works. Body, interior, and top are decent. Has some sort of aftermarket suspension, or at least lowering springs (I didn't look too hard but the springs are blue). Needs paint, has a crack in the windshield, and typical minor cosmetic issues that you expect from an old, high miles car. It was only on the trailer because I went to pick it up by myself. The car drives ok. If you have a set of wheels to bring so I don't have to find a set of daisies, I'll sell it even cheaper.
