These allow you to run all the popular wide Miata wheels like the 949, Konig, etc...

A small flare or wide body kit is needed to cover the tires--- if covering the tires is your thing

You used the reverie flares?

EDIT: N/M found the answer!

Cost? Will these be listed on your site or we just call to order?

I run 15/16 on track with Yoko AO50 medium compound 205/50 r15 front and 215/50 r16 rear (actually measure 229 wide!). Awesome combination.

Love the 6UL and would consider a track-only 15/16, or a street set in 16/17 but never a 15/17.

regarding rim sizes, 15/15 FTW!

On the spacers, they're not cheap being 7075 and full of ARP hardware... They'll probably be in the $450 range for a pair.

I'll list them on the site when the run is completed.

Cheers,

Phil

Are these happening? I saw on the website that the new 17s were released, but only 5 lug.

I think the ND fitments might be promising -- 17x8 and 17x9 4x100. Offsets aren't being announced until they ship to hold off derivative products.

17x8 6UL 4 Lug

I for one will run this if the right spacer combo will allow it, so I hope the offset is just a little on the high side

I'm also definitely in for a set of these 15x8/17x9 if we can make them fit stock fenders with meaty enough tires to make it worth it (225/245 please).
Now drooling over a set in Charcoal, with their Al valve stems and lugs

Hasn't been announced yet as far as I know. Silver surfer apparently heard +45 as he said.

All of the other wheels I have found that are being advertised for the new Miata are +45, I thought I saw that these were too, but now I can't find where I thought I saw the +45 for these.

the 36 offset 7s and 8s are nice wheels with just a little help of a spacer. Here's what helps on the front: Spacers

We have a nice, really nice actually, spacer for the +25 10" wheels from 949. We've been running these wheels for a few years now and believe it or not, 15" wheels are faster. End of story :d

Here's how to make the rear 10" work : 1" adapters

@turbophil do you know of any street tires that will fit on a 15x10? I can only find 275s in hoosiers.

Alright, so I just asked 949Racing on Facebook (since they seem to have abandoned this thread) if they were going to release the offset or could tell us if the new 17x9 would fit our application easily. Here's their response:

"If someone brings a Lotus here, we'll take a look at it. We will not be publishing the offset of our 17" 4x100 wheels anytime soon however."

I live on the wrong coast. They're located south of LA. Anyone wanna volunteer for fitment trials?
It also seems odd to me that that was their response - seems to me they'd be more eager to open up an entire new market for their small-market product.

The market for Miata track wheels is many times larger than the market for Elise/Exige track wheels. The ND 17's are being released fairly soon, so I'm sure we'll eventually find out if they work.
