    Enkei makes the 16x8 in a +35 I think but a 4x100

    I'm thinking getting them and drilling out to 4x108 so I can still use my stock wheels on the street. I'm not down for the hub conversion

    Yeah there are a lot more options with the 4x100. I already have my winter set in a 4x108 as well as the OEMs so I'd rather not do the hub conversion. Having those wheels is certainly a sunk cost, but still it seems like a hassle.

    Same here.

    If you are at OEM height, a 205/45 17 fits without rubbing. I had some Indy 500s at that size and that extra meat helped convince me to eventually get 15s. Now I'm running 195/55 but, assuming I don't lower my car again, once I replace these tires I'll likely go with 195/60 next...although I haven't completely ruled out a 185/60 or a 175/65.

    You are not going to put a 185/60, or 175/65 () on a 15x8, are you?!?!?

    That was my thought.... In other news... Winter mode.

    205/50R15 direzzas to 195/55r15 ipikes.

    I was planning to get a set of 15x7s to mount my winters on this year, but it just didn't pan out.

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    No, my wheels are 15x6.5. The 195s I have now bulge a bit (but it's understandable because they are a bit wide for 195).

    I'd love to get a 15x8 though and maybe I will sometime in the future, but I got a good deal on these so I jumped on it. Besides I do a lot of touring on the highways so a narrower wheel is probably more practical for me...

    No. Literally hundreds if thousands of people run 205/50/15 on 8 inch wheels in the Miata + Honda world. You'll be fine.

    Mountune springs will be going on soon, likely this weekend.
    My winter set up is also a 195. A 195/60-r15 on some 15x6.5 steelies. Very meaty. I'm a little worried if they'll rub when I lower. They're fine on stock height. If they rub, then expect a set of steelies / all-seasons for sale!
