I love that concave look. I have 18x8.5 in the front. And 18x9.5 in the rear with both front and rear having a +38 offset. The rear has the more concave look than the front. I don't know if you can see it in this pic....

Thanks. I went with narrower wheels in the front because I do SCCA from time to time. I think having too wide a wheels in the front might affect steering input.

Solo II? probably the most popular setup for autox with our car is the Enkei RPF1, 18x9.5 +45 all around. i like the setup a lot, and others seem to like it too

Yeah. Solo II. What about rubbing issues when your steering wheel is turned all the way to one side? And what about the extra weight of a much wider wheel in the front? What size tire are you running?

tires are 275/35/18. i dont get any rubbing at full turn. these wheels are 17.2lbs each, a lot lighter than stock, so its still less weight up front. not sure how much your wheels weigh tho.

sorry not trying to thread jack, just showing that the size fits fine. ill remove the pics.

Oh ****! You don't even wanna know how much they weigh compared to yours! These wheels are just for looks. LOL! Probably the stock ones might be lighter than mine.

Welcome the newest (and possibly smallest) member!





some day I'll build a "real" model "mini me", one that involves glue and instructions and such, but this will do for now

So I've noticed something disturbing about my beautiful new wheels, I guess when they got mounted they chipped some of the paint along the inside of the centers on some of them (pretty much all 4). I haven't begun to start complaining to anyone yet as I'm totally wiped out from all the battles I'ev already had to fight lately. My question is, does Work or anyone make a center cap for my Meisters? My 2 options are to either touch them up somehow with black paint, or find some centers that fit them and protect the inside centers etc. Anyone haev a suggestion or idea? The paint on them appears a little flimsy, makes me wish they would have pwder coated them instead of painting them but oh well.

Probably cause I shrunk the original picture ... but the Works are 18x8.5 +38 offset all around. Yeah I had a 2000 Miata a few years back and use to be a member of the Miataphiles.

Cheers,
