Tried these on my car tonight. Tell me what you think. I'm also contemplating the Axis Oldskool 15x8 0 Et or OG-san 15x7. Also the sportmax 002 16x8 0 et.

my opinion is the body kit and paint scheme are not my taste

but its your thing and thats cool with me ! rims look great. with that body kit and paint scheme i dont think the old school would really match the car

I would say what I think about the car but I will get banned. the wheels look ok, just need to lower the car way more.

FYI the Axis og are +20offset

Whats wrong with the car that makes you feel so negative toward it? Enough to get you banned? The wheels look ok? These are the same wheels on you NB. Time to go back to miata.net...more you speed buddy.

As "out there" as the Veilside kit is (No offense, it's simply not the style for me), seems like the wheels fit.

HOWEVER!

Add a bit more camber and a fender roll & pull, and you may be a tad better off. Looks like it may solve a potential rubbing issue in the front, at least.

I'd also look at possibly changing the center color of the wheels, to use one of the other colors in the car's palette to reduce that "busy" look that seems to turn a lot of people off toward a car.

So would you think they would look good with white centers or just get the silver? I plan on rolling the fenders and adding negative camber but I'm sure pulling won't be nessesary. My Other miata owns these rims and rubbing is not an issue(rolled and neg only).

Thanks for the input.

...and I know this kit is not for everyone....

I'd try to 'shop it to have white centers for you, but it would look like crap compared to what it is... But try to imagine it!

And yeah, sorry to emphasize the talk of your body kit... Heh :p

What kind of suspension are you rolling on? If you can, I'd get rid of the fender gap in the rear, to help even out the look a bit more.

ST springs with bilstein shocks. Was thinking of cutting a coil or two all around. I'd buy coilovers but my budget is not ready yet.

RusMan has one of the best looking NB's around and the 002's look flawless with his car.
The wheels could look great on your car too, if you sold the VS kit and spent the money on rolling the fenders and maybe sorting the suspension.

Hmm...sounds like every other NA with 0 offset wheels.....how exciting.

Flyineunos I think those wheels look better in terms of fit than those red ones you have. Im not just sayin that because 0 offset is what all the cool kids have, the low and wide look really compliments the bodykit. The silver or gunmetal center (I cant really tell what it is) looks good.

16x8 +0 would be pretty wild!

I dunno about the gunmetal and blue, maybe black centers would do it more justice? :-k

Hmmmm....then it will look like my other miata........Kit staying on cause I like it. Rusman NB is very nice and looks real good...I agree but nothing out of the ordinary. Just a stock NB w/ Sportmax.

FYI, if he's your buddy, great but you don't have to defend him. No attack on this side. Its all good.

Yes Rusmans NB is really clean,and its not just a stock nb with sportmax,not all nb's come with his front bumper,side skirts,hood,mud flaps,sparco seat,rollbars and so on. I know we all have are own taste and style and thats what makes fixing up a car fun, makes us stand out, however some choose to stand out more than others, thats just are choice.
come on guys.... wheres the love? :wink:
I think if you did do the center of the sportmax white it would flow with your car more, even the same blue would go better but of course, thats just me, if you love it, thats all that matters man. :)

dont get red sportmax then your car will be like a 4th of july float. i agree with someone who posted above, with your car maybe go 16's bet that would look nicer. as for the center color for the rims i vote white :p
