Aftermarket wheels for the miata. alloys with polished lip and rivets

The wheels themeselves are very economical and make a huge difference IMO. Each wheel ran me about 130 which was much less than I was expecting to spend. Shop around the price on these fluctuates from site to site. Make sure you get the lugs and other accessories as well the site I went with actually didnt include it since i didnt request it and so I had to wait another week for them to come in.

I went with these wheels because I was sick of looking at the yellowing centercaps of my miata alloys and i was due for some new tires. Basically I wanted something that wasnt too aftermarket looking. The appearance of these wheels have hints of the bbs wheels found in earlier SE models yet these were larger, wider,and MUCH less expensive. Also one gripe I've always had about the bbs wheels in earlier miatas was that they looked so damn small for BBS's. After recovering much of my expense from the sale of my oem wheels, I found this to be a great econimical upgrade.
