If you like the 17x9s just see if you can find a set to try out. The offset & tire size would play a big part along with how low you are. People on the S2 has tried 18x10s +22mm with fender rolling/cutting neg camber & stretched tires. It'll work, & to some people it'll look great while others really don't care for it. I would personally stick to 16s being the largest in diameter.

How would you like to be poked in the side?

More importantly, why is this thread back?

BoostedAP1, watch your dead thread revivals. They will not be tolerated. I'm already worried you're here because you got kicked off all the forums pertaining to cars you actually own.

I have 2 Miatas sitting outside is that not good enough? One Turbo other N/A. Have 2 sets of XXRs. One is +15mm @ 15x8 & the other was 0 offset @ 15x8 also. Unless I'm not seeing something people don't post in here much. If old threads are not up for discussion just lock them or remove them instead of banning people who are still interested in the topic. Thought I could share a little knowledge coming from doing a lot of fender rolling & getting wheels people say are impossible to fit, work. Other forum(Meaning my other 3 cars) you can still reference old threads & people are helpful & still chime in.

Didn't ban you, just said watch it. And if I deemed your post worthless I would have warned you, which I did not.

If your whole life delayed by 3 ******* months?? I can see it now, you're at home and your woman walks in and trys to turn you on..but to no avail. Three months go by and you're hanging out with the 'dudes in San Fran and it kicks in full force..like you opened an umbrella in your pants...finally. But now you're thought to be gay and it's too late.

From what i can see, the bolts are still on the hubs so its not the bolts. From what i can find he was using lightweight nuts. I'm guessing ebay special Billet aluminum aircraft quality space shuttle toughness thingamagiga wheel nuts from the future telephoned by the terminator him self.. Thats why all 4 rims came off as soon as he put pressure on them.
