Are you really trying to view the purchase of aftermarket car parts as a financially prudent decision? The parts won't add any value to the car, so it doesn't matter what the car cost.

A $2500 Miata is nothing but a big box to store all of your aftermarket goodies in/on. Once you're comfortable with that idea, you can really start to enjoy the car you're building.

And you can enjoy the car you are building with or without the 6UL's

I think the C1m's are a discusting knock off and look like something you would buy from sears, but I do like the look and functionality of my C3M's. . . bad morals or not.

P.S. Sav, I just picked up my 11.75 BBK from fedex. Now I get to see if they fit under the C3M's this weekend

I have a friend in C3M's with no problem to date with 15+ track days.

Now for my own personal opinion, they are ugly as ****. If you can't justify the cost and are on a budget no one is going to make fun of your wheels and the C3M might fit the bill. I ordered a set of 6Ul's in 8's because I don't approve of TR taking that fitment info off Emilio's site with out their own testing, they look good, I want Emilio to have my money so he can make more balla parts, they are light, they are sexual(6UL). I run China GT500 knockoff's on my Boss 302, so I'm not being a hater. Waiting for the C3MR 15x10 so I can lol. I hope Emilio makes those FTR's. I paid $97 a piece for 18x10's so I know Emilio can do the FTR if he has the time.

If you think about the wheels that most Miata owners purchase, they are typically knockoffs of a more expensive wheel. Who wants to spend $2500 on wheels and tires for a car that isnt worth $2500??

Wrong forum. No one spends 2k on 15x7 wheels.

Unhappy

Thanks to the couple of you who actually helped answer my question.. Another typical forum of people who love to flame! I guess I'll stick to trial and error in the future.
