Alright guys, I need your views on if the setup for the rear will fit before I order them. What I need to know is if a 15x7 +4 with 225/45/15s will fit with just rolling the fenders and some camber? I need some solid yes or no type answers due to ordering this weekend or monday morning.

Thanks,
Jamie

if you really want a 225 i would get a 8 or 9

8 +20ish would be fine with 225

7+4 with a 225 will look funky imho

but if you insist im sure with a little BFH action you can get it to fit fine

define "a little camber" to me thats -2, if that what you mean?

so you guys think a 15x8 +30 would not have any problems?

As with any non-standard wheel fitment it all depends. It depends on what generation you drive (NA, NB, or NC), your ride height, alignment, tire choice, your willingness to roll or pull your fender lips or remove your fender liners completely.

oh I'm sorry I forgot to say they are going on an 92 NA. I'm going to roll the fenders and have the eibacj pro-kit springs on the car with AGXs

6UL wheel fitment

90-97 Miata 15x8+40 225/45/15 Hankook RS2 fits front and rear, no rubbing. 245/40/15 fits rear, requires rolled fenders, front requires rolling and rubs slightly at full steering lock. +20 requires 195/50 or smaller, rolled fenders and extreme camber front and rear. Clears Wilwood BBK with two piece front rotors. Fits 01+ sport brakes.

99-05 Miata 15x8+40 225/45/15 Hankook RS2 fits front and rear,no rubbing. 245/40/15 fits rear, requires rolled fenders, front requires rolling and rubs slightly at full steering lock. +20 requires 195/50 or smaller, rolled fenders and extreme camber front and rear. Clears Wilwood BBK with two piece front rotors. Fits 01+ sport brakes.

Now the situation may be different given a different brand of wheels. I don't see why you couldn't get a 15x8 +30 to fit but it all depends on the particulars of your setup. Remember that tire size is a nominal rating and not all 225/45R15 tires have the same physical dimensions. The actual section width may vary by 10mm or more between two different make/model tires of the same size.

Thanks, food for thought. The tires are the RS2s and the wheels are the rota RBs

after thinking about the above post since run a 15x8 +20 would require a 195 is it safe to say a 15x7 +4 with a 205/50/15 falken 615 would fit?

You can fit 225/45/15 on 15x8 +20, just a little roll/pull of the fenders is needed, nothing major. It will almost be the same fit as 195/50/15 on 15x8 +0, and that's been done many times.

would you guys get the 15x7 +4 205/50/15 set up or go with the 15x8 +30 225/45/15 setup?

Again, it depends. What are you trying to acheive with your new wheel/tire combo? How much money do you have to spend? What look are you going for? Wheel choice is highly subjective - that's why there's thousands of different styles to choose from.

I second the question on what you want from this upgrade?

Is it all style, or is it style and function as one?

Not all high offset wheels are fugly :).

Hehe..............shadow offset...........roflmao.

Eh, just look at the rims dead on their face, and they look pretty. Look at them from the front or rear of the car, and I'll admit, it's looks like big fat wussy!
