Keith - I am still in the market for some 15x8 6ULs for my '99 silver NB. I have decided on the new Beryllium finish, but am torn between the regular version and your machined lip version. By chance, do you have any pictures of the LE version on a silver car? I would love to see how it looks.

Meanwhile, everyone can agree that they look totally bad a** on a grey ND!

Yes, inquiring minds would like to know. Thinking about stepping up to 15" for my 99 base. For more tire options. Currently have 14" on it. Have original hollow alloys, a set of NA Daisies and currently running Kosei T1 w/sticky tires.

I can probably get a picture of the 15x8 on a silver NB next week. Bill took our one set home and parked it in his driveway while he was on vacation.

They do look excellent on a white ND as well.

Just because it's funny.

I will admit I love that look. It reminds of all the 80s/90s touring cars with huge wheels tucked way up in the fenders.

I always thought it looked so cool.

That is a great shot. Not only do the wheels look good, but the red calipers are sexy too!

15x8 6UL fits the ND, interesting. Wonder why they did not offer any 15" wheels as OEM

Those are the 17x9 fitment on the NDs. You CAN put 15x8s on the ND, but not with stock brakes. It's a little funny looking.

This is a 15x8 with NA size tires on an ND.

Ouch, that is just wrong, does it have NB brakes on it or something so the wheels will fit?

It has a Flyin' Miata Little Big Brake Kit. Stock rotor size, but compact Wilwood calipers.

That's at stock ride height, we hadn't had the chance to do suspension yet. I think that was the first day we were working on the car, the second day we managed to put a suspension together.
