Thought I'd add this setup to the mix...6ULs (17x8") with 245/40ZR17 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S on a 2017 Club. ZERO fitment issues with stock springs, Bilsteins and stock aligment (-0.2°F/-0.8°R camber, 7.5 caster, 1/32 toe in..no rubbing at full lock eirher way and "Miata Gap" means no bottoming on fenders!

Realigned to -0.8°F/-1.0°R, 8.1 caster, 1/32 toe in..very slight LF inner liner at full lock to left...most likely because of high caster needed to get to the -0.8°F camber point.

Will need to lower the car now either with the RS 300/200 springs...or more like with the Ohlins Street coilovers this winter.

Thanks!

Had to have them repainted to 42A Meteor Gray (per my wife's STRONG request!).

The turn-in is amazing with these tires, as is the straight line tracking, comfort, roll, minimal road noise, etc...even at 30psi at all corners!
