they were lighter. How much lighter? probably not much. But i do remember changing them back for the oem paint matched fenders and noticing that the carbon ones were lighter.

mine were the dg motorsports and they fit pretty well. they had some rough edges but were not bad overall if you take in that they are aftermarket and were composite.

here is some more info and pictures from my old trade thread.

I have the hyperblack, only have some shots but you can't really see the wheels and they're dirty. I'll try to get better photos in the spring.





edit: found a crappy pic on my phone

Looks pretty good! Do let us know when you get more pics. It's fairly hard to find these wheels on an NA miata for some reason (other than the one white one).

I still like these wheels. I'd really be done for a 15x8 versions unless we get some better options for street tires..

Crap - I guess like 'Miata' is always the answer to 'what car?', '6UL' is always the answer to 'what wheel?'
