Shouldn't you be testing it on the ground rather then the wheel jacked up? That's a fuck ton of camber that i doubt you would run naturally when lowered on the ground.... might not have needed such an aggressive flair.

Don't get me wrong wheels look hot! but think it would look super dope with the fender flush with the tyre over the crazy flair lol.

So I have a large dilemma with what I'm going to do with my car in the near future. I am still on stock wheels and the tires are 185/55 and the fender to hub is 11 inches all around with my coils maxed out. I really want to keep the car at current height or lower so heres the question. If I get a 15x8 195/45 then my height won't change but I am unsure if there will be wheel gap. Another option would be get some 14x8 and run a 195/45 which would lower the car about half an inch but again I don't want any wheel gap. What do you guys think is my best option????

195/50/15 or even 205/50/15 if your offset isn't too low and you'll be good. Your car will be only marginally higher.

That was actually my first plan. Using the willtheyfit site, it says the 195/50 would raise is about a quarter of an inch and the 205s would be about half an inch. So it really isn't that much. I guess I really shouldn't try to go any lower with my current coil setup.

Your order of business should be first getting tires that are snug and close most fender gap. THEN lower the car. Don't try to lower it by slamming on tiny tires like a mk1 rabbit and be left with a fistful of room from tire to fender

That is my order of business but I just wanted second opinions on what would look best with my setup. I like abusing my car on and off the street so the slammed life isn't for me at the moment.

there is no suspension in the car at the moment, but when there is i will adjust the suspension to where i want it with the fender which is where that picture shows it

Yeah, as long as the alignment isn't changed then it doesn't matter if the car is on the ground or not. That amount of camber is necessary to fit the offset without getting flares. I don't understand how you think less camber would need a less aggressive flare.

Dude I run 15x9.5 et-6 and dont need to run that much camber. Same tire size. Maybe be smart and do some more fender work, or get flares

So I've got a quick question for you guys. My car is roughly as low as ParkerV's red miata above (post #3575). I'm going to put 15x8 +0 Grid V's on my car, and my question to you guys, is how much camber roughly should I run in the front and rear? I'm going to get it aligned before I get the wheels, to make life a little easier. Or should I wait for wheels then align?

Dude. Do you realize how many people are rocking 15x8 +0 just on this forum alone?


And i did my coils, wheels, and tires. Then i went and got an allignment. I dont see why if you left the stockers there would be a problem, since all the allignment is in the suspension

Right, I get that a ton of people run that size. But what is the general consensus when it comes to how much camber to run to fit the tires?

Unless your car is fucked, the natural alignment of the car and right tire size always does the trick on its own with x8 +0

^ +1. Flat roll and the pull the roller gives as your rolling should be enough.

The tires are 195/50/15.
The last place I had it aligned at did the camber "within spec" so it's kind of all over the board. A friend mentioned he ran about -2.5 front and -3 In the back but that seems a bit much. Should the rear have a bit of toe in? Or should I just zero it out (I plan to do a bit of drifting at some point, and I know the little bit of toe in in the rear is supposed to keep the back end in check). If someone could post up alignment specs that'd be awesome. Sorry, kinda new to the whole miata thing.

I'm moderately slammed and I just ordered some 195/50/15's with some 25mm spacers for my Kosei K1's. That'll make them 15x7 +13 and I'm worried about fitting them under my front fenders. I just don't wanna fuck 'em up

You wont mess up your fenders if you roll them the correct way. I rolled the fronts on my NB with a rubber mallet and a heat gun. No paint cracking or anything.

I didn't want to start a new thread to ask & couldn't find my answer, but this is kind of " Fitment " related.

But, for those who are running 15x8 and higher widths with 195/45 or 195/50 and up. How much of the bumper tabs did you have to cut off for your tires to stop rubbing as you are turning.
I have dealt with this annoying rubbing issue for about 8 months and it is time to deal with the problem and have people stop looking at me when i turn a corner and rub since it is quite loud.

If anyone can show me some pictures of how much i should need to get rid of, that would be great.

Mine were just rolled flat. What rim size and offset do you have? Which if those is your tire size? How low are you? Depending on ALL of that, you may or should get your fender's rolled or pulled. Part of the rolling is the pressing up of the tabs. That's why the tabs are a barely touched subject in this thread.

Not sure if you have mis-understood what i was saying, but it's the tab that connects the bumper to the fender i think inside the wheel well. Infront of your wheels/tires.

To answer your questions though:

90' Miata; 15x8 0 Offset in 195/50/15 Kumbo AST all around. I am dropped just tucking tread and fender is sitting flush inbetween the tread and the sidewall. Fenders rolled flat and pulled slightly.

The tabs weren't rolled aswell in the rolling process since i did not know it would be causing such a problem in the future. Tabs were used as a guide line to where the rolling should begin to gradually roll not as flat.

Haha, yeah.. i understand that now it should of been rolled, but how much of it to cut off or roll so it won't rub?

I read some time back that you need to trim the tab a bit to avoid the rub. I think I read it on a 15x9 thread. Take a dremmel or some other grinder and go at it until you get close to the bolt. You might want to search for the 15x9 thread.

Just want to ask before making an offer to this guy. I found a set of Stance Mindset 15x8 25 offset. I am wondering if I will need to have my fender /rolledpulled? Nobody here really has these and I can pick a new set up for about 500 bucks. I know that some on here will disagree with me but I like them and think they will look good. I also read that others like the XXR better over the Stance but I can't find any XXR or Rota that I like in a 15x8 or 15x7. So I been looking and I found these about an hour away from me. I think I can beat him down in the price. What do you think?

I think only about 95% of this forum currently has, or has tried, that exact setup. It just wont work on Miatas.
