They do look lovely, I was looking at them the previous time they were listed, however with 0 offset and at 8" wide they'll more than fill your arches, they'll stick out.
So you will need arch extensions, as it is illegal in the UK to have your wheels sticking out :(

I personally don't like the look of these rims at all and they are quite expensive ... if you do fancy them though you will have to get a set of tuckin99 or similar small fender flares and cut back the existing arches on your car to allow the suspension travel/steering of the wider rims ( £300 + shipping + paint + trimming back metalwork + wheels = pretty expensive )

if you are looking for a set of nice ( wider wheels ) to fill your arches something like R S Watanabe 14 x 6.5 offset +9.5 need no alteration to your arches and give a nice subtle - but noticeable lip and are MUCH cheaper to buy tyres for !

like these :

I have a set in perfect condition that I am about to sell, if you are interested drop me a PM ...

djsqiigles, your car is hot!!!


what arch work did you do to fit them under? ever had any rubbing problems when steering? does it upset the handling at all?

this is a really tough decision :?

Don't work like that in the UK. With wheels stuck out like that, you're liable to be pulled all the time, at the least asked to do an inconvenient producer, at worst, get the car confiscated on the spot by VOSA.

i might buy both sets if the missus lets me blow all my money on wheels lol, ive got some other wheels i can sell and other bits 'n' bobs (anyone want some bose speakers :wink: )

the suspension i have is factory japanese bilsteins which have been rebuilt, i bought the wrong springs though so as of yet have not fitted them but i will be fitting them with eibachs or fm (any recomendations?) or maybe even tein s spec to get that jdm'ness.

can you adjust the camber on standard suspension set up? to get that pimp camber.

cheers, Dude

Adjusting camber, toe, caster, etc. is possible on the Miata no matter what shocks you have (beauty of shocks over struts). The degree of adjustability, especially in camber, often depends on your ride height. The lower you are, the more (negative) camber you can dial in. Keep in mind that measurements are related: for example, caster numbers will restrict your camber up front.

If my car rubbed I wouldn't drive it.

I had the fenders rolled in the rear and then did the fronts myself.

Rubbing is for people who don't know how to do things right.
