Konig wheels

Postby LouisC559 » Thu Jan 31, 2013 11:55 am

Brain,
I have a 2002 Miata Base with stock wheels. If I were to put on Konig Lighting wheels, would it impacts the unsprung weight and handling of my Miata? I am using 195 50R15 Toyo tires, what size of tires can I safely use if I want wider tries. Please advise and many thanks.

Stock 15 inch alloy wheels were 13 pounds. So, if you have stock aluminum 13 pounds wheels and you put on another 13 pound wheel like that Konig LightSpeed then you have not really changed ride. The wheel is wider than stock 15x6 and that means you would get more grip from the 205mm wide tire since you a spreading it on wider wheels.
