Off the top of my head I can't think of anyone running 17x9 up front. Puma rand 16x9 et25 all around, so it's basically that but with slightly larger wheels.

ok well after searching on this site and another for some basic info I've come up empty and this thread looks like the best place to ask.... I'm looking for the stock offset of the 15" Clubman wheels. I'm going to get my wife a set of 16" RS reps this spring and need to figure out the offset to order (I'd pull her wheel off and check myself but I'm at work now and have been busy refinishing my own wheels and trying to recover 12,000 lost photos on my laptop when I'm at home ). I can figure out the tire size using the size calculator (is that still at that miata-net site?) but if anyone wanted to save me time and let me know the popular size for a 16x7 on a stock sport suspension that would be much appreciated as well

Thank you both. I'm not a fan of reps myself but for her car they're fine, besides, the Remembers have been around for so long they're ok in my book

Hi, can anyone tell me if its gona fit an R50?
16x9 ET33 up front (original wheel is currently 16x10 ET21)
16x9 ET21 at the back

Im worried that the front ones won't fit or will look silly, so if anyone could post some pics of others running something similar it would be greatly apreciated
Thanks!

You might need spacers up front? Rear's should be fine.

Just an update: I never got the reps, they would have cost too much after tpms, new tires and new bolts so I just kept looking and looking and finally found a nice set of R90's to put on my wife's car at a fair price. Thanks again for the help now I just need to find replacement bolts so I can paint the faces of the R90's.

Any reason you're going wide on winter tires? People generally move to skinnier tires for winter. Unless you have a set sitting around, I would aim for 205/45/17s if they offer them.

I put 2,000 miles on these blizzaks last winter on my E28 M5. The M5 will be sitting in a hanger this winter keeping dry, so it's either buy el'cheapo wheels to fit these tires, or buy winter tires for the stock 16" bridgespokes. Either option costs roughly the same, and I can sell the bridgespokes to offset the cost a little bit. 215 is a little wider than I was hopping for, but I'm hopping it will work!

Right now I'm running 17x7.5 et35 with 215/40/17's & 5mm spacers and it rubs a bit in the back. My wife says that I can buy new wheels for the current tires as long as they don't rub! haha!

Edit: messed around with 101tires calculator. compared to my current BBS wheels, these 17x7 et 38 wheels will sink in 13mm and the 215/45's are only .4 inches taller than what is currently on the car. I think this should work pretty good for winter use.
