Default any idea what wheels these are?

I may be changing my stock 14" wheels for the following type.

Anyone have any idea what make/model they are?

They are an unusual style as well.

so if you know any info/etc would be appreciated.

Sparco NS2. They generally come in 15x6.5 +40 or +32. So the width is a bit narrow and the offset is so-so. BUT if you come across a 15X7 +25, which is rare but it does exist- that's the one you want to get.

There's a company called Primax that makes a knockoff of the Sparco wheels. Think its called a 104 or something. The knockoff has been around for a while. My buddy got a set w/ his old S14 several years ago. Think his were 16x7 and weighed like...22lbs or something stupid.

thanks all.

Been after some 15" wheels for a while as my 14" ones are a bit 'tatty' and want the bigger wheel.

been offered the above for not much money and the centre has been sprayed black so it looks quite nice. also they are rubberless which means i can choose the tyre exactly what i want.

I think they are the 6.5 +40 as they were on an MX-5 previously.

will ask the seller to weigh them as well after reading raen's comment!

looks like they need to have the centers re-powder coated and the lips polished....but they would look nice after they are restored. I too am not a fan of that particular size or offset. I think they would look decent on the Miata.

I think they would look nice restored. If its that good of a deal, do it for the tires! T1-S is a sticky one. They also probably wouldn't look bad at all with a set of 20mm spacers to drop the offset to around 15-20.
