Icon9 Can't find

Hey i tried finding the information i am about to ask but couldn't find anything for what i am thinking (might of over looked it, but doubt it)..but anyways...might seem weird but i curious. what is the max size rima nd tire you can put on base 5th gen lude...and can it increase ride height without sacrificing much? just curious because I was always throwing tires and rims around between friends on our trucks.

You can increase the tyre's rolling circumference by running a higher profile, and that will give you a small rise in ride height, but then you run the risk of scrubbage, and if the midwest is as in love with speed detection devices as the Aussie governments are then speedometer accuracy also becomes an issue with the altered profile.

There's a link I put in the top post to work this out - http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html and it's quite fun to play with...if only for a short time.

Ah but you can sacrifice wheel size in order to get your desired tire profile size (ex. 35,40,45,50,70) The more profile you have the smoother the ride, so if you want a crazy 4X4 height tire then you could revert back to a size 14" or 15" rim size, to try and stay in that same circumference so your speedo will be on target.

If you are looking to go as big as you can on rim size, then you are probably looking at 18" as big as you can get without doing some suspension work (i.e. caber kit)

IMO the 17" wheel is the prefect size so you still have the room to lower the car around 2" to have the smooth look equal space between fender well and the outer diameter on the wheel and tires. Again IMO, I did borrow my brother's Tenzo 18" wheels off of his RSX, for a show once and I did not like that big of a wheel on the car it robbed so much power from the car, I am still at stock ride height so it felt like driving a four wheel drive or SUV. If you can see my sig from the wheels those are the 18's but I think once I get my wheels I'm going 17's with a 40 or 45 size profile maybe even a 50 if I can still clear the fenders with a 2" drop.
