I'm looking for a set of 15" or 16" by 6.5" or 7" wheels to fit an NA Miata. OEM Miata wheels would be great, if the price is right. Wheels from something else would work, provided the offset is close enough. Basically, I need a 4x100mm bolt pattern (unilug is fine), with offset in the range of 35-45, and a hub bore of 54.1mm or larger. I already passed up a screaming deal on a set of Konig Rewinds that were 25 offset. The lighter the wheel, the better. Cosmetics aren't that important; I'm willing to strip/polish/refinish if necessary.

If they happen to have a set of decent UHP street tires on them that aren't used up, so much the better.

If anyone has something that they don't need or are looking to trade up, hit me up. I am in Columbia MO (65202) and willing to pay actual shipping. My budget is ~$300, but I could go higher for a set with tires. psteav AT gmail .

You should have no problem finding very nice '99 Miata 15" rims for $300. If you will accept ugly, they could even be cheaper.

Here are 4 rims plus 3 tires for $335 http://www.miata.net/cgi-bin/isc/classifieds.cgi?action=detail&AdNumber=74320&CategoryID=110&SubID=0&Position=29&TotalCount=61&Session=483c44214b052531&FirstPage=20&LastPage=40&prevaction=show No too far from you in Illinois.

EDIT: I should have read more closely. You state in the first sentance that you are looking for 15x6.5". The factory rims that I have listed for you are only 15x6. Good luck with your search.

If you can not find the Miata rims that you want, might I suggest Mazda MX-3 rims. The sizing is exact in all respects but they will weigh more than similar from a Miata.

Little clarification...I'm wanting to spend UP TO 300. FWIW, I did consider that very ad, but I didn't want to drive 5 plus hours, since he states he won't ship.

And I would consider the factory 15x6.

Thanks for the tip about the MX-3 wheels, though. I didn't know that, and they're fairly easy to find.

Here is a link to what MX-3 rims were available. http://www.mx-3.com/rims/

I used to have a set of the '94 GS rimson my '90 Miata. They looked nice (similar to the final years of the RX-7). I do not know what they weighed.

Also, www.mx-3.com has a classifed section on their board.

I've got this available. $300.00 Bronze powder coated 15" Koesi K1's +38 offset 13.2lbs each

$550.00 with two week old Dunlop Direzza Star Spec tires. The clearcoat is cracking on the powder coating and there is a space about a 1/2" wide where the powder coating was sanded off. [IMG]http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e102/grinch77/car/DSCF2389.jpg[/img]

grinch77, sounds like that may be a winner. Where are you located? And incidentally, what centerbore are the wheels? (Not an issue, really, I could get centering rings easy enough). Shoot me an email, if you would. It's the same as my username here at gmail.

jrw, thanks for the info. Learn something new everyday.
