WHY? You want the best MX5 wheel for your money!
HOW? Flow forming...because it gives us a STRONGER product than other casting methods with a strength level that otherwise requires forging...but at much lower cost than forging.
WHAT? The best combo of WEIGHT, STRENGTH and PRICE you will find in an MX5 wheel. You get a MX5 15x9 that is 6kg....yet has a load rating of 500 KG.....and you get it for less cost than anybody else can give you those three things!
- 15x9 4x100
- +35 offset
- Flow Formed construction
- 73mm center bore
- Clear coated finish
- Cap included
- Valves not included
- Clears our BIG BRAKE KITS!
- Fits 225/45, 225/50, 245/40, 245/50, 275/35 tyres. Always check clearance during install and after car is lowered to the ground, failure to do so can result in damage, death, tyres cut on guard lips, and other bad stuff!
Will NOT clear stock suspension, need coilovers with 2.5 inch diameter springs or narrower and expect may still rub at full lock (which is not a real issue since full lock is only possible at parking lot speeds), 3mm spacers can be added if you are running so much camber that you rub inside control arms, etc.
Tyre Size breakdown:
-195/50 and 205/50: not recommended
-225/45: Tyres fit NB guards with no mods needed if camber 1.5 negative or better, fits NA with slightly rolled guards and that negative camber
- 225/50: require rolling and pulling guards, removing liners on NA, NB only requires slight roll.
-235/50 Toyo R888: requires rolling and pulling on NA, roll only on NB, will rub top of tyre at full compression.
-275/35 require rolling and pulling, removing liners on NA, flat roll on NB. 20-30mm spacer recommended to fill aftermarket flares.
Intro to Flow Formed Production Technique in video below. Result is stronger and more dense final product with less weight than lesser casting methods.
Brian's Application Notes: WOW, what a bargain, never dreamed we would get flow formed strength in this price range. The benefit is wheels that are BOTH stronger AND lighter! You can buy lots of regular cast wheels for this same price and more that are not near as strong.
