Minilite Style Wheels for ND Club

Post by GlenL531 »

Has anyone ever installed Minilite style wheels on their ND? I know that Rota's RB is available in a 17 x 8.5 4x100 45 which should be good for a 235 / 40 tire; however, I have never seen them on an ND? Are their any Minilite style wheels recommended for an ND Miata?

The issue with that vintage style is that it does not scale well, it gets REALLY heavy if you push the design out to 17 inches. Thus, I have not seen it, and I know that getting that look right in 17 inch would mean a wheel that is just too heavy for the Miata (ride quality would take a big hit).
