i have a 93 miata base that im wanting to put coilovers on and also add 16" zero offset wheels at some point as well.

my car is currently dropped 2" on cut springs

i need feedback on which of these i should do to my car first. i dont have the money right now to do both so i'm gonna pick between one or the other for now.

Coilovers x 1million

Zero offset wheels will just **** up your fenders without coilovers. Cut springs are too soft to keep the wheel out of the fender.

Start doing things right by fixing what is done wrong.

the reason i was thinking 16's is because i had 15" rims before the 17's i currently have and i could barely make it over speed bumps without scraping...

Megan EZ-streets all day. They ride great. Can be soft enough for pussies, and when it's cranked full stiff it's nice and firm. Best bang for the buck I have experienced on a height adjustable suspension.

Looks like 18's are in order.

Keep in mind a 205 on 16x8 is not the same as 205 on 15x8 as far as ride quality. I've thought of dailying on 13"s for this reason. I'm currently on 205-15"s with 12/8k and I'm satisfied with the RQ.
