    Not that I can speak well of their prices or service, but their site has a lot of info if you're willing to dig...I wish they had the weights for wheels...

    Miatas. I wanna say my stock STO 97 tires are 13-15. Not listed in that other thread though. M edition had em too. Otherwise I wanna say most Miata factory tires would be a good bet. Good luck getting the owners to give em up tho... Hehe

    The problem with Miata rims is their center bore is too small. Otherwise they have some great looking rims.

    I never did this, but in the Nissan pickup community I remember reading about people having the centers of wheels intended for Chevy full-sized pickups bored to the bigger Nissan size. I can't report on how difficult or expensive it was, just that it was done.

    The 92 honda del sol rims would look good, someone on here this online forum years ago had like 92 civic coupe rims on their Mirage uploaded a photo , though also I never rode in the car myself however so don't know if the ride was any good actually looking to get alluminum rims soon

    for my Mirage nice that Fit rims fits old ones, and also bunch of Minis all kinds of cars the Del Sol rims with that weird shade of whatever far out 4 bolt tires, if there were custom tires that were not so narrow my Mirage could in theory look way way sportier

    It's an RS Watanabe New RS8. It comes in a 15" x 5" format with a 45 offset. However, it will cost 43,000 yen ($520.50 CDN) per wheel.

    Nice. They totally look like old school hatchback rims, these are the ones available at my local retailer: https://www.fastwheels.ca/categories.aspx

    I have the rims post on my profile page but I think the page expired woops anyway look great either way, I would go with wire rims if I could pick anything for my dark grey mirage hatch 2014

    Oh, and look towards Rust Belt areas, where alloy wheels often outlast the car. Keep an eye on Craigslist in say Chicago or Milwaukee for inspiration. I'm sure you can find a set you like, at a great price as the owner is being nagged to clean out the garage. Have you seen the Craigslist thread here?
