I ran them full time 14x7+0 for months, no problems at all. I was running gc/agx.

just decide what offset (backspace) you like and give them a call, they are easy to deal with.

Miazda318, awesome, what year is your miata? i've heard of some issues with brake clearance. Of course with 15x8's there should be no problem. But i have a 96 miata and i wonder if a 14x8, 5inch backspace is good enough...

san diego roads are pretty wrecked most of the year, well the places I drive... loads of potholes and gaps from cracking.

0 damage to the wheel bearings, I really wish whoever is spreading this would eat their own ass.
I have 194k on my wheel bearings and put 25k on low offset wheels solid daily duty and have had no problem with my wheel bearings...

I have the normal bowl shaped rim. I think someone on here had a 94 and had 13in diamonds on it. So i gues 14 will fit, but do as much research as possible.
