FS: 14lb 17x8 +45 Wheels

Postby chill_dog » Fri Apr 29, 2011 12:23 pm

I'm selling a set of Motegi Traklite 2.0's. They are forged wheels in a gunmetal color.

Size: 17" x 8"
Offset: +45mm
Hub bore: 72.6mm
Weight: 14 lbs

Wheels are in great shape; like new. I bought them (used) to put on my TL, refinished them to the current color, but never put them on the car. They'll come with hub centric rings, center caps, and some tuner lugs.

$1,000 shipped CONUS.

I'm a long-time member in good standing on Acurazine under this screen name (chill_dog), and was referred to this site by another member there who owns a Miata. Feel free to check me out there. I don't do much on eBay, but I can offer that for reference, as well (eBay account: jfunde01).

EDIT: corrected the hub bore information.

FYI to buyers these wheels are fully forged wheels. I *think* these are the lightest wheels one can buy in a 17x8 wheel. If memory serves me right the weight of the wheel is machine in between the spokes in kilograms. I understand they come out to be 14.6 lbs. Now that American Racing owns Motegi they are now being made & coated in black teflon.
Might help if seller posted photos of center caps (Mazda has rusty hub centers), size of hub rings and did you paint or powder coat the wheels?

If I didn't have a set coming my way this summer I would be interested.

Best of luck,

^Thanks. And you're right on all counts.

They are fully forged and the lightest 17x8's available...that's why I got them; they were lighter than RPF1's and I'd have lost ~10 lbs a corner while maintaining the OEM specs for my car.

The weight is engraved between the spokes...6.5kg...according to the online converted I just used that works out to 14.33 lbs.

Hub rings are 72.6 > 65.07, so I guess the hub bore is actually 72.6 as they are a perfect fit...that's what I get for trying to get info off the internet LOL. In fact, I just measured them and they are 72.6...and it took less time to measure than to research :roll: ...one of these days I'll learn LOL. I'm not sure what type of car these were on originally, but I know 65.07 wouldn't have worked with my car so I was going to have to get a set of hub rings. From what I could find, the Miata's hub bore is 54.1, so you'd have to pick up a set of hub rings, too. I'll still include the ones I have...they came with the wheels when I got them, so I'll pass them along.

I will try to get pictures of the center caps as soon as I can. If rusty hub centers are what I'm imagining, I have them in the front on my car, and there wasn't a fitment issue. Still, I will try to get a handful of pics of/with the center caps.

Wheels were painted.

Disregard the number of posts from this member. I know Jack from over at the Acura forums (Acurazine.com). I recommended him post a thread over here due to the perfect size/weight for us MX5'ers.

He's a trustworthy dude. Someone snatch these up before I do! :D

Here are the center cap pictures. They aren't the greatest because I don't really take pictures (use a camera maybe once every couple of years), but hopefully they show what you're looking for.

As with before, click on the thumbs for pics; click on the pic that comes up for HUGE pics...

Those would look so hot on Stormy Blue, Liquid Silver or even Copper Red.
