Default new wheels/tires

Just pulled the trigger on some sp10's and a set of bf g-force rivals. I should see them by next Tuesday and I'll post some pics.

I went with 15x7 wheels with a 42mm offset and 205/50/15's. Once they're on and I see what clearance I'll have, suspension work will shortly follow.



2nd pic is the rubber but not the wheels. Wheels weigh in at 14.5lbs, not sure on the tires?

Needs more lower.

There is a 4lb increase in total weight per wheel/tire.

what made you choose these over the popular 949's, konigs, or even Rotas?

I hadn't seen these on a silver miata yet, offset, weight, and price, were all contributing factors.

These tires are such an upgrade over the **** set I had on there. Even in 35f weather they steer really nice and take bumps smoothly.

I pulled the trigger as well...except I am a much better shot.
I'm ditching my mad tyte brotegi's in 16x7 with toyo proxes 4's in 205/45/16. I'm going konig flatout gold with machined lip in 15x8 with hankook ventus rs3's in 225/45/15.
Suck on that, bitches.
