      Why does NA matter?

      "NA" is the chassis desgination for early Miatas with the pop-up headlights.

      These wheels (and the similarly-popular RP F1s) look good only if they have a center cap. No cap = horrid appearance IMO. I know the track addicts will bitch and moan about shaving weight, but come on--a cap will only add like 10 grams or something per wheel. Deal with it.
      I chose Falken Hanabi 15x7s for my NA. I like that they are acceptably light (11lb) and aren't chrome. I know this is a lousy picture--I sux0r at the photography:

      I made this P-chop some while ago (incl. the carbon roof and the bonnet ) I got the wheels from a red corrado. Some say they are PLS wheels, some say they are HTN but all I know is that they're damn secksey

      I also always liked the wheels that came on the Mega-Monster Miata.

      Kosei K1s, Panasport or Panasport knockoffs, the Team Dynamics wheels SM guys use, and whatever Rotas these are. I can't remember even though they were on my car.

      I think design is the least of it. I would say in general, 15 or 16 inch diameter and 8 or more inches in width with a low offset.
      Anything and you may as well just leave the stockies on it.

      I like the ones in the first picture, although the name of them is escaping me right now.

      The problem with the RP-F1 is that there ISN'T a centercap available for the 15" wheel. They just don't make one.

      I want to see a set of Work Equip 03's on an NA. I have a hunch that would be pretty hot.
