Was asking about this on another forum but I figured I'd bring it here where the parts are.
The miata in question is a 94R. For the most part it is a weekend driver where I might site see or
perhaps find a nice curvy road to embrace. I'm not looking to destroy ride quality for the sake of
handling but a bit of improvement in response and perhaps a bit more grip then stock. I don't
know that I'll take it to the track but if I was I'd probably get another set for that.
I've narrowed down to either-
15x7 Advanti Storm S1 with the Nitto NT450
14x7 Enkei RPF1 with the Falken Azenis
The Enkei setup is about 250 more but it seems I'd have a better ride with improved over stock response.
Can anyone offer any thought on these setups? Thanks for any suggestions!

Ride quality for those combos will be so close you can't feel the difference. The reason is that you have a really stiff sidewall relatively heavy 14 inch tire with that Falken....and a very soft sidewall ultra light tire with that Nitto. That 14 inch combo has more grip with that Falken, by comparison that Nitto is a low grip all season tire that will live twice as long as the Falken...but never be as much fun to lean on as the high grip Falken.
