    with 15x8's you may as well go with a tire size that's a little more... usable...

    Please take no offense to this statement... But I didn't realize that you were going to do what everyone else does.

    no offense taken, but if i was going to be like everyone else id have a 45 series tire a gv lip and be scraping my frame rails everywhere i went. id probably also have racelands lol. I'm not tracking this car at the most ill take some on ramps at a moderate speed. The miata is slow and its always going to be i have no plans to track it or make it any faster then it currently is. All i really want to do to it is lower it a bit more put a decent set of wheels on it and do up the interior. i'm not going to mod the miata the way i did my msp.

    Gotcha. Perhaps I'm just used to my MSM and it requiring the widest, stickiest tires I can fit so that it doesn't kill me.

    lol yea theres a difference between a crappy running big enchilada msm making 180whp and my super slow maybe 125whp miata lol. to give you an idea of how slow my miata is last week it was raining and i was like lets see if i can break loose the tires in 1st. i stomped 1st from a slow roll and nada the car lust accelerated......slowly lol. my msp on the other hand i stomped it in 2nd and the wheels broke loose and my car revved up so fast i thought i popped out of 2nd gear and was in neutral lol. Also i was in a msm a few weeks ago with just a fm intake and it was really quick had nice torque and pulled great. i can only imagine what yours will be like with a extra 50whp after your figure out your issue.

    Well... you're also comparing apples to oranges with FWD and RWD in the rain. Weight transfer in the FWD when accelerating makes it easier to break them loose. With my old tires, in 30 degree F weather, I could break them loose in 2nd when boost built up... Heh. That was mainly due to the tires being rock hard in the cold though.

    also i think ive changed direction as far as wheels go with the car. i think i'm going to pick up a set of enkei 92's in 15x8 +25 it will give me more of a usable offset vs the +0 on the grid v's.

    here they are in gold (i would get the silver version for my miata)
