As a new mx-5 owner (2008 Touring), I have a question that's probably been asked many times before but I 'd appreciate your feedback. What's the widest tires that I can install on my 17" rims without making any modifications to the wheel or fender flares?

For the factory 17x7 rim I would not go beyond 215/45/17. You could go wider but it will get progressively more and more sloppy feeling unless you also go wider with the rim.

The most popular upgrade for the NC generation Miata is a 17x8, 48 to 50mm offset, with a 235/40/17 such as....our RS+M 17x8 with 235/40/17 Toyo T1R
