    15x8s on a mirage

    Jealous of cani-lupi cool pictures, and autocross season right around the corner, i dug these out of my attic. They are 15x8 25ET (not sure what 25et equates to for offset or backspace)

    No way this will happen lol. Here's some pictures for fun, massive wheel poke. Didn't even bother lifting the front up once i seen the poke.

    Guess I'll stick these on the miata and keep the mirage on the ensaves... I scored some real cool hubcaps earlier this year from a fellow forum member anyways!

    I picked up a set of (real) used 15x6.5" CE28N wheels a few months ago. They'll be going on my Mirage as soon as winter is over. I think they only weigh about 8.7 lbs each!

    Those have a nice deep offset. I run the same size wheels as you do.
    15x8 et25 But I mounted Stock 185/55/15 tires which gives it that stretched look.
    All you need is to roll your rear fenders and pull it a little for them to clear.
    I rolled and pulled mine after getting the tool from China.

    Only the rears rubs. The front is fine.

    I should've tested the front. I don't think I could've driven or believe me, I would've!

    Got any pics? It was a good 1-1/2 sticking out I can't imagine it ever clears!
    I believe I have 225/45/15s mounted on them, though, so big difference, but you still must have done serious pulling to tuck them lips!

    Wow..225s are wider than the rim.
    With 185s only the rim pokes out a little.
    With 195s was about flush with the rim.
    I get a good stance and still have stock fuel
    Economy. With those lightweight rims of yours if you go 185s it would be perfect.

    I don't have really good pictures that I took.will take some and post it here.
