  2. Jeff- follow these links to ROJA 17" rims. One is 14lbs ea. The other is 15lbs ea. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/17-FORGED...1QQcmdZViewItem http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/17-ROJA-R...1QQcmdZViewItem
  3. Were in. Tim & Donna Cowan http://web.tampabay.rr.com/cowancom/Tims_TCs.htm
  4. Check out 18 x 7 ROJA 5 Star with 225/40/18's on a T/C http://web.tampabay.rr.com/cowancom/Tims_TCs.htm
  5. Like these two at http://web.tampabay.rr.com/cowancom/Tims_TCs.htm
  6. Pictures of my 10/1/1995 crash are still up at http://web.tampabay.rr.com/cowancom/Tims_TCs.htm Van was doing 80+ when he hit the passenger side front rim.
  7. Not forged, cast. But only $145.00 each at Discount Tire. The set you see were made for SEMA. They are the only 17" in the UNKNOWN rim till August they tell me. They have lots of 18,19 and 20".
  8. Hey TwinCam- How about coilovers for the T/C ?
  9. Jeffn-You have to scroll to see all the pictures. The rims are the latest and last pictures.
  10. If you would like to see pictures of the 17" rims you can see them at http://web.tampabay.rr.com/cowancom/Tims_TCs.htm You can also see pictures of what happens to a T/C when someone runs a red light at 80 mph and hits you in the passenger side front tire. It lanched his van 4 ft in the air. I got the door open and walked out !!!
  11. The ride is fine. 45's still give you enough side wall to not ride like a buck board. The handling is night and day difference. You can corner with some actual confidence instead of the "on tip toes" feel of the OEM setup. The rear springs on the T/C were the ones used on the Dodge Dynasty. When mine get a little softer Im going to air bag the suspension.
  12. Sorry I got the size wrong. The new tires are actually 215/45/17. There is a great tire size comparison macro at www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html. Here are the numbers for original T/C tires vs. 17" upgrade. Size Sidewall Radius Diameter Circumference Rev/Mile Difference 205/60/15 4.8" 12.3" 24.7" 77.6" 817 0 215/45/17 3.8" 12.3" 24.6" 77.3" 819 -0.3% I had the speedo reset for the new tires but with -.3% difference it really was not a must do. The new combo is 11 lbs a corner heavier. Stopping distance is also a little longer. More rolling mass to slow down.
  13. I Just put 17 x 8 Konig Unknown Rims with 225/50/17 BFG tires on my son's 1990 T/C. No problems. But gas mileage that has been 26 mpg for the last 2 years so far has droped to 23 with the new setup. Discount tire still lists the T/C on both there local and online direct web sites. Tire rack only lists 15 & 16 inch rims for the T/C. Discount lists up to 20 inch for thw T/C! If I had to do it all again I may go 18 inch. 20's would look like a covered wagon wheel with the short wheel base. Ill try to get pictures up soon.
  14. Yes the Magnacor wires are OE red. And they are gorgeous. For spark plug wires that is.
  15. Kirby--Why OE? I've replaced all mine with Magnacor 8.5mm wires #6514. Yea about $85.00 less will be in your wallet, but no other wires I've ever used are close. Whille your at it you might try Denso Iridium plugs at the same time. Same story very costly but worth every penny. Plug #IW16--$11.99 each at Sparkplugs.com .
  16. Steve--Where are you in Florida? I have a set of speakers I took out of my T/C you can have. I live 3 miles from Rickey Rat World. Let me know.-Tim #2847
