Default Best Diamond Steelies Color?

I have a black 99 miata with the leather package so tan leather interior and tan top. Im going to lower it and put on wheels, so I wanted an opinion on which diamond steelies would you guys like most. I will be getting the SC Series steelies, so should i get black, white, or silver? Im kind of liking the white but idk how it would look with the tan top. Thanks everyone!

Im gonna redirect you to Clubroadster.com

Here is some advice, this forum can be pretty hostile, this is a function before fashion community.

Only you can decide what color wheels to buy, its your car and your taste.

Steel wheels are garbage buy one of the nice flow formed options available.

Your gonna get hung out to dry with this as your 1st post.

Steel wheels?!? My 1966 Plymouth has those. I've got a utility trailer that has them too. Oh . . . and my tractors.

Kubota orange looks really good on steel wheels. John Deere yellow too.

Hot hot pink is the only way to go.
Make sure to get the 15x10 -35 set up.
That will let the 185's stretch just right.

I was convinced that was the most epic thread title troll on the planet... and no, seems to be serious.

Go to Mazda Parts from Good-Win Racing - Mazda Performance Specialists and buy some sweet JDM knockoff Konigs. They come in perfect miata offsets, weigh half as much, look great, and cost about the same as those crappy steelies.

If you even come back to read this- steel wheels may be in style right now but with an underpowered car you will seriously be losing performance by running a heavy wheel. As mentioned above "flow formed" wheels are one of the lighter weight yet still inexpensive wheels you can buy. There are a few different companies that offer flow formed wheels. Check out Good-Win Racing, as they have some to choose from and state their individual weights as well.

Let your friends run the steelies, and leave them wondering how your car got so fast (without steelies)
