So yeah just bought these wheels.



Specs: 15x7.5 et-8 and 15x8 et-14 4x100 SSR Formula Mesh

Now I'm wondering how to make these fit, first attempt ever to fit a car with aftermarket wheels (yeah ghey I know).

So that's the car:




I still have the OEM Bilsteins. Now I need to buy some coilovers and drop that bitch. Anything else I need to make the wheels fit flush (roll the fenders most probably??).

Thanks!

Nice wheels! How much did they actually set you back?

I actually cried a little. Wheels were shipped today, and the Miata is stored until April, fucking shitty canadian winters...

Yep it's them. The sad part is that they really ARE my first aftermarket wheels I bought. My '98 Civic beater sits on OEM 14' wheels and the Miata on the OEM BBS! We do big things.

And just for shits and giggles, I will fit them on the Civic and post pics. Hilarity should ensue.

a roll for sure on all corners, a minor pull up front depending on tires and a pretty damn decent pull for the rear, depending on tires lol.

Height plays a big roll too, the higher you are, the more they'll poke which means more work.

This is my old setup. 15x8.5 -8 to -10 ish lol. I pulled my front as much as I could and did a big pull in the rear.
I also spaced out my front fenders just to give me clearance. Like dub said u will need to lower the car a fair bit. Should get like 185/45 all round. And slam
