Im looking for a new set of wheels and I dont really want to spend more than 100 bucks per wheel (not including tire). I want to get something in 15x7 but I might go 16x7 if its a light wheel and cheap. Anyone have any suggestions of what to get and where to get them?

Im looking at the Kosei K1's, but they are like $119, Im also looking at the Kazera wheels some of the Spec Miata guys run, and also looking at the Konig Feather even though its a 15x6.5.

Rota have a good rep but might be slightly more than $100 each. Downside is that all of their offsets will be about 40mm w/ the exception of the RB. Check http://www.machiii.net .

Of course there is the venerable SportMax 002 and 501 wheels that come in under $400 for a set. Hard to beat a lip like that for the price.

Drag has some decent looking knock-off wheels for really cheap. A shop that is local to me sells 15's for $300 and 16's for $340. I don't know much about their durabiltiy though. Here are a few that they make

DR16 15x7 Gold 4x100 - 4 sets[/SIZE]
DR16 15x7 Black 4x100 - 1 set[/SIZE]
DR16 15x7 Red 4x100 - 2 sets[/SIZE]
DR17 15x7 Black 4x100/114.3 - 2 sets[/SIZE]
DR20 15x7 Gold 4x100 - 1 set[/SIZE]
DR21 15x7 Black 4x100 - 1 set[/SIZE]
DR23 15x6.5 Flat Black 4x100 - 2 sets[/SIZE]
DR23 15x6.5 Flat Bronze 4x100 - 1 set[/SIZE]
DR23 15x6.5 Black w/polished lip 4x100 - 1 set[/SIZE]
DR24 15x6.5 Black 4x100 - 2 sets[/SIZE]
DR24 15x6.5 Gunmetal 4x100 - 1 set[/SIZE]
DR24 15x6.5 Gold 4x100 - 1 set[/SIZE]
DR24 16x7 Black 4x100 - 1 set[/SIZE]
DR24 16x7 Silver 4x100 - 1 set[/SIZE]

Check craigslist. I just picked up a set of Kosei K1's for my car 16x7 (13.5lbs) with brand new tires for 250 and refinished them silver. You can see my write up here:

Nice find with tires!!! Definitely advise you to check your local Craigslist.

I actually just picked up a set of 15x7 Kosei K1s in et17 from the CL for around the same price. No tires though!

The BBS that are on my car I picked up for $350 w/ tires from a local Honda forum. If you don't mind used, those are usually the best for <$100 per wheel!

Its not guaranteed that something will be on there daily, but when it does pop up, have your cash ready and get it that day. Every day I search "Miata" and "Torsen" and random other things.. once in awhile I get a hit ;)
Aka.. a torsen setup w/ axles for 300
Kosei K1's with new tires for 250..etc.
