You should be, Mike... be very careful with the offset of the wheels you consider.

Who's Mike? ;)

Thanks fer the advice. That Miata-site tire size tool is very cool. My priority is summer-only tires, not a large diameter. I don't believe in mount and dismount, mount and dismount, so I need a set of rims. I've been all over Tire Rack and Discount Tire, ands so many rims just don't thrill me; that's why I was looking at the Konig Glide in black, 16" unfortunately.

Since I live in road-salt/pothole land, I don't want to go lower profile then 50-series; I've bent rims here before. Plus, I do not want to be associated with the Low rifer/Civic Si/Folgers can exhaust/subwoofer crowd.

I just gotta find 15x7 wheels that I like. I'm so damn fussy.
