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.

Spend most of your money on Coilovers then save for nice wheels like something light. Unless you are going for the flush bullshit like all of the other sheep.

Depends on how low you want to go. Megans are about the best ride quality for price. I have been in multiple cars with them and they ride amazingly for the prices.

I think you'd have a heck of a time fitting 16" 0 offsets on an NA. In fact I don't think I've seen it done. Stick with 15's!

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.

Wheel diameter =/= overall diameter.

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.
