Default Getting Trmotorsport C1M. Thanks Tire Rack.

As stated. I also got a set of 205/50/15 Kumohs for my 96 N/A.

I did alot of searching before I ordered them just to make sure that the +30 offset would not affect anything. I am at stock height. Right now I am running heavy-*** 16x7 with 205/45/16 +40's on them. They were on it when I bought it.

So. Lee from Tire Rack; I guess, had some concerns. So HE... decided to Put a hold on my order. I was not happy,but I understand that he was just looking out for me. I appreciate that T/R.

He said that it was possible that I would have to roll the fenders. Now this goes against everything I read. Did I miss something?

Well they are on their way and should be here by Friday.

I would just like to double check with you guys that they will fit without issues.
Please help me out.
Thanks. Jay.

My experience with that place was great btw. Would highly recommend to everyone. The guy called me, I gave the go-ahead, and had my wheels the very next afternoon. Everything went silk smooth.

I'm not saying that I had an unpleasant buying experience. I am quite happy with them. I'm just saying that Lee gave me a scare that the wheels would rub.

I was just asking you guys if I would be allright without doing any fender rolling. I am commited to these wheels either way. I love them. they are cheap and light for the money. So if I have to roll,then so beit.

So I should be good then???

My c3ms don't rub and they are 15x9 +36.
Only time they "rub" is at full lock when they touch the rail on the fronts.

So ya. You should be good.

They should have called Emilio/949 and asked him if their wheels would fit; you can probably look on his website and figure it out yourself.

This is a great demonstration of the free market. Sure, TireRack can wait for someone else to do all the research but when it comes down to selling borrowed knowledge, abject failure takes over and the consumer. Hail to the free market and the small business who triumphs again.

Maybe...maybe NOT

Having significant experience with tons of different wheel/tire setups on na's and nb's(I have rolled fenders on more than 25 miatas and I have 5 miatas in my stable), @ +30 you are likely to have a bit of fender rub on those tires. I have never ran that setup, nor have I seen it on another car, but 205/50's are pretty tall, so ride height and camber might come into play.

Any wider than 205 and yes, NO doubt you will rub bigtime. My +30 ATS wheels w/225/45/15 tires BARELY cleared my rolled and mildly pulled front fenders. 205's on the same offset wheel will be *very* close to the lip, especially if you are running low and have minimal negative camber.

don't be-a-scared, if you tear up your tires you can blame TR

That's what you get when you deal with the Wal-Mart of the tire & suspension world.
