K1s are on sale at TireRack right now @ $105 each so that is going to be your best option there.

Yeah, I saw that pretty good deal however I'm unsure if I want to run 15's or 16's on the NB.

It's a pretty hard decision. With 15s, you get a myriad of pretty awesome tires. With 16s, you get shittier AND more expensive tires.

It's rough. May as well flip a coin to decide, right?

You're right I should just run 20's and be done with it.

Which is the problem for me on this 15's are much cheaper but 16's look so much better on nb being that helps fill out the car a little more. I mean let's be honest i'll probably end up with 15's can't seem to find any 16 wheels in sizing that I like.

Does it matter if you find 16s you like if you can't get tires worth a ****?

I thought I was posting on a performance oriented forum. I must have logged into ClubRoadster by mistake. My apologies. Didn't mean to try to steer you in the right direction.

Miata is my daily not going all racecar status didn't know I needed to run hoosiers on my way to work. Again didn't know my car was so important to you thanks for your input and yes you make good points on tire sizing but that's not really my main concern atm.

What IS your main concern, then? It's not clear in this thread. Help us help you.
