Default Anyone running TRMotorsport C1M 15x8 +20's?

I've read that I'll still have clearance on a 15x7.5 +30 but I'm really after an 8 inch wide wheel and love the look and value of the TRMotorsport C1M's. Anyone on here running them and how do they fit? I'm on an NB with stock suspension at the moment. Hopefully will be on coils in a month or two.

I'm running a 15x7.5 and it's a good fit. The bigger wheel shouldn't be a problem on your NB.

A few NB guys have tried those wheels and with a little heat gun to the fender liner + some camber they work out fine. Even with ride heights low as 12".

I'm really after running 225's. I'll search around a bit more. These may be the ticket.

I think tirerack has the C1M in 15x8 but the offset is +20 or something pretty aggressive(I don't think this is a miata offset but was instead for a BMW)
I think there is a recent thread on m.net

Why not get a 6UL?

Currently because of price and a lot of people don't know the full story. However last I heard cheap, slightly heavier version of the 6UL is planned for release sometime soon (hopefully) to compete with the TR wheel. Still lighter than the TR wheel though, I think.

I wanted to wait to see what the XTR's looked like but my tires were shot. 15x8 20 offset, 205/50 RE-11, oem suspension. With the tire rebate the whole package was only ~$760.

Tires are huge compared to the worn out 195/50 RS2's

Mudding Miatas?

Those wheels look pretty... ghetto, to be honest.

Yep - definitely needs some lowering but these tire have all kinds of traction.

The straighter spokes and that color make them look like plastic matchbook car wheels.
