Mar 26, 2015 update to the Mazda Miata - Sunburst Yellow project car

New Wheels for the Miata

Why so gold? That's a secret for a future update–but let's just say we have a new theme idea in the works.

Guess what just rolled off the UPS truck: Eight new wheels for our low-dollar endurance racer. We were tired of running with mismatched hand-me-down wheels from past projects, so we finally ordered our Miata a couple sets of its own.

What did we choose? 15x7” König Dial-In wheels. They’re strong, light, and reasonably priced at about $120 each. Why so gold? That’s a secret for a future update–but let’s just say we have a new theme idea in the works.

I was >< this close to buying a set of those in 15x8 bronze for the Manic Miata this spring, but I had to buy a minivan instead.

I have huge hopes for where this gold theme is going!

There's a cruel irony in there somewhere...

Gold wheels? Personally, I'm hoping to see those on a black car with a crazy screamin' gold chicken decal on the hood. Yee ha !!!

Wasn't Margie trying to buy an ambulance? Which Cannonball Run car had gold wheels? I've got an idea......
