Default WTB: NB Miata upgrades for street/track


Just picked up a 1999 Miata. Looking to get some upgrades for it. Some things I had in mind were a 15 inch wheel and tire setup. I'm open to different stuff but at least a 205 or wider and the stickier the better. Probably don't want r compounds though since they will be driven on the street.

I figure I will need a roll bar as well for track events. Plus I figure its a good idea since I'm planning to run at the track at least occasionally. Needs to work with the stock soft/hard top.

Plus anything else that might be a good deal(brakes, suspension, turbo kit, etc.) I checked here because I don't know of any good classified miata sites especially locally. Thanks in advance.

I have some koing heliums in 15".
Here is my old FS thread.

I'd take $275 shipped.

Also, I have a Flyin' Miata light weight flywheel (the 13.45 pound)
that's been opened but never installed.
I want $250 shipped for that.

I have shocks and springs from a 1999 sport with 90k on them, still work fine. This would be a good, inexpensive upgrade if you have the base suspension package. The shocks are a good deal better than base, and the springs are a little stiffer (168 vs 162 Front and 130 vs 118 rear). I could sell yo uthis stuff for cheap.
