Have fun with your heavy wheels, **** tires, tiny contact patch and mangled fenders.

0 offset on an 8 inch wheel requires quite a bit of pulling/rolling. There's plenty of pictures of them on miatas

All depends on if he is the typical stretching idiot that asks about sportmax. But I tracked on 002s with 225 NT01s just fine. I prefer cheap/disposable wheels.

Expect to flare if you run a real tire... if you are a drifting/street slammed looser... just hammer it out and run stupid stretched stuff to fit.

yeah might have to go for some other wheels just really liked the look of them i could get them in 7 inch wide but thats much less dish. still dont think it would be worse than the 17s honestly. cheers for your thoughts though

Performance does not revolve around asthetics. Worrying about asthetics is not worring about performance. Worrying about how much "dish" a wheel has is like putting premium fuel in a stock NA Miata and thinking it'll make a diffence on Mt. Akina when the Red Suns challenge you.

boost93 you seem to understand where i am coming from. I'm not really interested in full out performance. I want to change what my car looks and handles like as it is because I'm not happy with it.

I have seen tons of miatas running these wheels and i realize there will be lots of work to make it work but its just a genuine question nothing more than that. I don't want my car to scrape and be impractical but i appreciate the look of a low car even if it wont be best for performance.

If you're willing to "make lots of work" to fitting wheels, why not get some 15x9 or 15x10 6ULs and get functional? Leave the 0-offset **** to the bandwagoneers...unless by doing work you really mean installing flares so you can run a 225 tire on those 0-offset wheels.

This is not the forum for you. We are going to ridicule you incessantly, I recommend you go back to Club Roadster because that's more your speed. Believe it or not, "Miatatuirbo.net" is not about stretching wheels or touching men, it's about turbocharging Miatas.
