Default sportmax wheels

Hey guys, I figured that I would put it on here, but I am looking for a pair of the sportmax 002's in the 15x8 size. If you guys know of anyone that is selling some, please let me know. Thanks, Steve

I want black wheels with the beautiful machined lip. The car is also black, so I think it will all look like real stealthy. I also plan to run 195/45/15, these tires are expensive when you run across them, but with this, I think that I can get away with minimal rolling on the fenders.

Those wheels are just so damn sexy. I think I will start looking toward ebay here soon, if nobody is selling.

I just saw it and they were having a discussion about it on cr.net, this was a while ago though, but they said that it gives a little more room to allow just a real slight roll. When I get the time and the patience, I am going to roll and pull the fenders the right way and fit some 225's on at least the rear.

You have to get a fender roller, and a special heat gun, and you just take it real slow, haven't done it before, so this is going to be interesting.

What offset and size are the ones on the white Miata pictured?

my 240 friends grab poles and put them against the fender and between the wheels and slowly drive. its funny cause thats how the hardcore guys in japan do their fenders as well...
