Default Wheel snobs... TE37SL vs ZE40?

My brother-in-law showed me Rays new ZE40 design, and I think I'm digging it. I can also get it in the bronze color, which could look REALLY good with the "Copper Red" color of the Miata of phaggetry...



ZE40 in bronze looks like this: https://www.miataturbo.net/attachmen...ine=1445621396

The TE37's would be the "Pressed Graphite" color, like this: https://www.miataturbo.net/attachmen...ine=1445621396

Both would be 17x8.5" in size, the ZE40's would be +48 offset, the TE's would be +40. Rubber will be 235/40R17 of some sort.

SHeeeeeeeeeEEEeeit. I know the images work on another forum where I asked the same question (not Miata.net) but obviously I turbo-suck at this particular forum's image linkage methods.

I'll see what I can do to get it fixed, stand by.

There wasn't a direct link, and this forum can't parse a non-jpg URL as image even when in [img] tags. Another car forum of which I'm a long-time member had no problems with it.

When I get home tonight, I'll re-host the photos and then get back to the proper IMG tags.

ZE40's in bronze

ZE40's imo.

ZE40s. No question.

Then again, I really like the Weds TC105n.

But I also suck at life and have RPF1s on my BRZ.

Onyx,

Thanks for the excellent examples! They were even better than the crap I tried to link I really do like the look of the ZE40's, but ye olde TE37's get a LOT of love pretty much everywhere.

The problem for me is, they're pretty much everywhere. ZE40's in a 17" size don't even exist yet. Kinda like turbo NC's on this forum Would be nice to have something different that's still forged, lightweight, made by a reputable establishment and actually looks good with the NC.
