I finally decided to get rid of my Firestone HR Champions after having them about a year. Just not grippy enough. I went with Falken 912s, inexpensive, quiet, and grippy in the 195/60R14. Then, after I did my engine swap I was looking for a place to do a quick oil change because my homeowners association forbid such activities. I found a Goodyear tire store in Campbell CA. The mechanics were very interested in my Miata. I came back to do another oil change (still breaking in the engine, a rebuilt 1999 1.8L) and one of the mechanics bought a Miata! He had a set of used Rota RB15s 15x8 for real cheap. I bought them and put on a set of Dunlop Direzza DZ101, 195/50/15 82V. Looks nice but I had to roll the fenders because the offset is low and the wheel sticks out a little bit (plus I'm lowered 1" all the way around on Koni STR shocks). Still rub a little on the wheel well lining when hard cornering but the car is more stable now, highway lines have no effect but I lose about 1 mile per gallon (about 29/30 isn't bad though). I don't like the camber setting on the rear wheels, -2 but I am not about to fork out a couple of hundred of bucks for a Megan Racing rear camber kit.
