WHY? You want the best MX5 wheel for your money!
HOW? Flow forming...because it gives us a STRONGER product than other casting methods with a strength level that otherwise requires forging...but at much lower cost than forging.
WHAT? The best combo of WEIGHT, STRENGTH and PRICE you will find in a MX5 wheel. You get a 15x9 that is only 12.8 pounds....yet has a load rating of 500 KG.....and you get it for less cost than anybody else can give you those three things!
* 15x9 4x100
* +35 offset
* 12.8 lbs (6 Kilos)
* Flow Formed construction
* 73mm center bore
* Clear coated finish
* Cap included
* Valves not included
* Fits 225/45, 225/50, 245/40, 245/50, 275/35 tires.
Always check clearance during install and after car is lowered to the ground, failure to do so can result in damage, death, tires cut on fender lips, and other bad stuff!
Will NOT clear stock suspension, need coil overs with 2.5 inch diameter springs or narrower and expect may still rub at full lock (which is not a real issue since full lock is only possible at parking lot speeds), 3mm spacers can be added if you are running so much camber that you rub inside control arms, etc.
Takes optional 73/54mm hubcentric rings also available on this website.
Tire Size breakdown:
-195/50 and 205/50: not recommended
-225/45: Tires fit NB fenders with no mods needed if camber 1.5 negative or better, fits NA with slightly rolled fenders and that negative camber
- 225/50: require rolling and pulling fenders, removing liners on NA, NB only requires slight roll.
-235/50 Toyo R888: requires rolling and pulling on NA, roll only on NB, will rub top of tire at full compression.
-275/35 require rolling and pulling, removing liners on NA, flat roll on NB. 20-30mm spacer recommended to fill aftermarket flares.
