Default Please help identify these wheels...

Please help, Roadster gurus!

I found a set of wheels for sale locally that I'm interested in. The problem is, the seller doesn't know anything about them other than that they're 4x100, and 15x7. The wheel has BBS stamped on it, but it has "MODA" centercaps. I've found a couple different wheels referred to as a BBS Moda Sport, but some are really heavy five-spokes, and some are a traditional "basket-weave" or mesh style.

I like the way they look, my only concern is their weight and offset. I'd post a pic here, but I'm not very computer savvy. Here's a link to a car on cardomain that has the exact same wheels: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/521535

I PM'd the guy with the cardomain site and searched miata.net, but haven't come up with any definitive info. Got any ideas? Your help is greatly appreciated...

Moda is a house brand of Tire Rack. BBS had made some wheels for them, I don't know who currently is. But its a place to start. They may have some information on the wheel if you email a picture.

Hey - thanks for posting up that pick.

Those are the wheels I'm referring to. Here's what I know:

Made by BBS, possibly sold under the brand Moda, not sure of model
15x7
35-38mm offset (not exactly sure, but it's in that range)
4x100 bolt pattern

All that's in question is the weight... I picked one up when I test-mounted it on my car, (the wheels have Yoko AVS ES-100's on them - they weigh 18 lbs.) and it felt much lighter than my '97M 6-spokers with 215/45r15 tires - but it may have been my imagination.
