Wanting to get a new smaller diam wheel for the miata.

But I want a wheel with some dish to it, but don't want it to stick out much farther than stock.
What would be the shortest Hub and QR combo that has no play? Low price is a plus.

I want the QR for the added safety ( who steals a car with no wheel )
And in case I get a kirkey like I have in my 240. ( It's nice for everything but getting in and out. )

If I can't find a short combo I will probably just go without the QR and buy another grant setup.

Pic of my 240 setup.
Cheap grant wheel and grant short hub ( no QR ) $64 shipped total, but rock solid.
And Kirkey intermediate oval.

NRG Short hub + Slim QR?
Those two are incompatible. You would have to go with a standard QR if you use the short hub. The slim QR won't fit over the spline and the nut on the steering column. I have a 300mm Momo wheel with the short hub, and 2.0 QR and it sits at stock pretty much. I love that setup

Oh ok, thanks for the info. I was just going off of what I knew to be the shortest of each.


Also,

Someone who has the exact same mass-produced NRG quick release.

Works Bell also offers the "Short Boss for Rapfix" and "Rapfix QRS"





Not sure about thickness or compatibility tho

any of the 'twist' type q/r are your best bet for thickness. but can't beat the quality, and lack of play from the more legit companies.

I have the Rapfix QRS. I is indeed small, like 25mm. (That's just under an inch for you Imperial folks.) It works fine with my very-not-slim Daikei hub.

I used to run a 10mm spacer with my hub to get the wheel close enough to me. My Lotus seat makes me sit farther back. The 25mm thickness of the QRS is perfect for me.

I am using this on my miata I don't know who makes it. It came with the car when I bought it but it's pretty slim and it's a release.

I like the look of the works bell the best.

Might see what length the normal works bell QR + a slim hub would be, think it might work out just right once I get a seat mounted.

Thanks for the opinions.

now comes a question....are this brand trusted?
Don't ever touch that, i got one from that brand. Broke and i got my steering unattached from hub in a tight curve. Trust the good and proven products like Sparco, WorkBell and NRG...

My Mooneyes wheel bolts directly to the steering column. Can't get shorter than that.
