I've sold my first miata and have just purchased a replacement. It's being shipped from Japan sometime in the near future and I have a couple weeks to browse the auctions and try and find some pieces to bolt on before it comes over.

My relentless YJ browsing has found me these:

http://tinyurl.com/y79upx - translated
http://page10.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/m31669244 - untranslated

I'm liking the stagger but I don't know if the offset is going to work. The front should be fine but will I have issues with the back? Looking at about 700$ which doesn't seem too bad but I would love if someone could properly translate the page for me. Not sure if I should be worried about "One place [ho] it is with there is the bending of feeling amount".

They're a bit rashed up but if they're straight and will fit I'd love them on my car.

Let me know what you think OR show me some other JDM suggestions. The car is BRG and would look great with some E03's.

Maybe not for a NB body. But for an NA body- I would say there is a 99% chance you'll need fender rolling with 205/50/15 and +23.

As to the disk- I'm going by Work's own recommendation
http://www.work-wheels.co.jp/wheels/matching/eq-01-matsuda.htm

車種名 型式 HOLES FRONT SIZE REAR SIZE 注意 & WHEEL 可能 TIRE WHEEL 可能 TIRE P.C.D. Disk Disk
ロードスター NA 4H-100 15×6.5JJ+32(A) A 195/55 15×6.5JJ+32(A) O 195/55  
ロードスター NB 4H-100 15×7.0JJ+25(A) A 195/55 15×7.0JJ+25(A) O 195/55 1

They recommend A disk on the front... maybe they're being conservative. I don't know.

guys,

hope this helps.. Equip 03s with an O disK will clear front stock calipers of a 1.8. Jesse's right though that a 15x8 +23 with 205 tires will definitely rub. I have a 15x7 +23 O disk w/ 195 tires on the front and it's just about flush with the fenders. A 15x8 +23 O disk w/ 205 tires will be ok for rear though. Slight fender roll needed..

there is no way in hell a 15x7 +23 w/ 195 is flush with the fender, or even close

rob. are you saying the 15x7 will be inside the fender or out. I'm hoping that the 15x8 sits flush but I'm getting a little worried. Also hoping that the 45 series (vs. 50 series) makes a bit of difference too.

I guess rob's saying it's gonna stick out. But mine (NA) looks flush to me. :wink: Maybe it's subjective.. What looks flush with someone may look to be sticking out to someone else.

Dale, are you 15x8 +23 in the garage? If so, I'm a happy camper.

Got to say, I love the car. I'm going for a slightly different look but we think alike.

tuned,

My rears are 15x8 +23 with a 205/50 tire. Front wheels are 15x7 +23 with a 195/50 tire. 15x8 +23 for the fronts will most likely rub in my opinion. But some guys here run a 15x8 +0 so it's really up to you.
