Default rpf1's and 2005 msm mica red

i have a 2005 msm mica red with megan coilovers.

i have xxr 513 right now i like the look of the rim but not the size of the 15's
i was thinking 17x 7 gold rpf1's and should i run 205/40/17 with it

does anyone have a pic of something close to what i want to do?

You!

Get back over to m.net...now.



There is a guy on CR/M-S with 17" RPF1s..on a Titanium...and the wheels aren't gold...but you can get an idea of the style. I think what you have in mind will be fine...just dont get 205/40 or 205/45 tires....215/40 or 225/35 tires will be better.

That isn't perfect...

Exhaust looks restrictive
Rear view mirror cover looks like goose turd.

Those wheels though...they're....perfect!

You're not running the Sport Brakes are you? AFAIK, they won't fit under 15" RPF-1's. I have those wheels on my SE-R and will be running the Sport Brakes on my Miata.

No, I've just got the stock '99 brakes. The wheels don't seem close to the brakes at all though.

It looks like the diameter of the '99 front brakes are 10" and the sport brakes are 10.6" (.3" larger radius). I took a pic, easily over 1/2 an inch to spare on the front wheel. I guess it depends on the caliper but it certainly seems possible that they would fit.

One of these days when I get off my *** and install my sport brakes, I'll see if my RPF-1's fit, though I've seen multiple posts saying they don't.

Looks like it might be a width issue with the calipers rather than a diameter issue. Just a guess based on the picture.

I thought the 10AE have the Sport Brakes? At least, that's what pads I ordered last time I changed the brakes and rotors.

Also, I know ILoveOffRamps has a set of 15" RPF1s that he uses for DD duty on his '04 MSM.

I've driven that car several times, and I've helped him change the tires more than a time or two.

I knew he had the spacers, but thought he ran them to get the wheel to sit more flush with the fenders.

I know when we tried my RPF1s from my CRX they hit the caliper both on the front and rear, but my RPF1s were also +41mm.

I thought his were +35mm's and didn't need the spacers to clear.

I guess I could call him.
