Brake Clearance Information
In the engineering phase of wheel development we 3D scan factory brakes and review 2D aftermarket brake templates in order to optimize our barrel profiles and spoke curvatures. As a result, our wheels offer massive brake clearance so you can run the smallest possible wheel diameter.
Centering Ring Information
Since our wheels use a center bore of 70.1mm hubcentric rings are needed to center the wheels properly on the Miata’s 67.1mm hub. Additionally, the NC Miata compatible wheels require aftermarket lug-nuts with a 60° tapered seat.
Wider fitments for enhanced performance
Whether you enjoy spirited street driving or you are a weekend track warrior chasing lap times, these wheel & tire configurations are ideal for enthusiasts looking for a more dramatic improvement in performance and they are typically paired with performance oriented Summer tires or track oriented R-compounds.
Track focused fitments that require significant modifications
These wheel and tire configurations are best suited for hardcore track junkies and club racers competing for a spot on the podium. Everything from Extreme Summer tires to full Racing Slicks are commonly used depending on your experience behind the wheel, class rules, etc.
This is our most aggressive wheel fitment for weekend track warriors and hard core racers seeking maximum tire sidewall support. These 10" wheel widths will require supportive modifications commonly found on track cars, and may still lightly scrub the plastic fender liners at full steering lock or under heavy suspension compression.
