Hey everyone,
I'm new to the cr board, and have recently been getting into wrenching on my daily school transportation (my '92 miata). I love the look of the sportmax 501 15x18 +15offsett rims.
I need some experienced advice on....

-what tire to use with these wheels

-what your ride height is, and how much fender rolling if any was needed to fit these wheels with your current tires

-what your shock/spring setup is no matter how crappy (i have ebay crap coilovers that bottom out when I run over an acorn, so don't be bashful)

-any suggestions on a similiar wider than stock, 15" dia., low offset wheel that is in the same price range as the 501 sportmax and your tire size with recommended wheel


Thanks in advance!
Anthony

15x18 wow. wide.

No fender rolling necessary, but RR rubs under some conditions.

Wow, 15x18 +15? That's intense!

-what tire to use with these wheels

Depends what you want. You can do 205/50/15, 195/50/15, 195/45/15... or anything up to 225/50/15 if you want to run fender flares.

-what your ride height is, and how much fender rolling if any was needed to fit these wheels with your current tires

Depends on what tire, and what look you want.

-what your shock/spring setup is no matter how crappy (i have ebay crap coilovers that bottom out when I run over an acorn, so don't be bashful)

You would need to roll your fenders no matter what tire size you use.
