i got some more to add

rota slipstreams in 15x8, 16x8, 17x8.5. i dont think +48 offset for the 17x8.5 will fit with out a spacer.

http://18racing.com/wheels.html

on this website, they will make custom offsets for rotas if you get 4 sets made.

What kind of price shipped would we be looking at here? I assume the offset would be appropriate for the MX-3 and that the extra width would be pushed out the outside edge of the wheel. It would look pretty slick on the MX-3 but how would the added stress affect the hub assembly and suspension? I've been looking for 16X8s without much success and don't think 16X7s would have enough width for the stance I'm looking for. Hmm. I might be interested if price is reasonable. What tire size are you planning to run?

Ive got 15 X 7 Rota Slipstreams... I love em.. but with a 205 50 profile tire and stock ride hight they look really stupid (small)... new suspension this spring will make em look good.

im gonna be using 18x9 +24 all around. it is pretty flush in the rears but the front pokes out about 10-15 mm. 18x9 +35 will clear in the rears but on the rears 19x9 +24 is about as close as id go to the struts.

Hmm, those Spec Miata wheels look like they might be worth checking out. I've been thinking about getting some specifically for DOT competition rubber to take to the track with me. These are heavier than RPF1s, but not by much... And the sizes offered are quite diverse.

Thanks for the link.

BTW, there are also tons of new and used JDM wheels available at

http://www.rbwheels.com

http://yhst-1408381693991.stores.yahoo. ... mrims.html

http://www.memoryfab.com/wheels/

etc.

Just google 'jdm wheels'.

They cost quite a bit, but if you're in the market for some nostalgic and rare/out of production wheels, then it's probably worth it. Most are forged and very lightweight. Not to mention beautiful.

I've bought my SSRs from ICB.

Sadly most of them are 6.5 or 7 wide. Probably won't find anything in the 15" size that's wider than 7. However they have a lot of lip.
