    1995 Protege DX - New Miata Wheels

    Bought 2001 Miata wheel set (16x6.5 et40) off ebay for $250.

    Pretty decent shape to begin with, I gotta say... (photo 01)

    Aluminum had paint peeling areas, and some curb rash.

    THEN my powder coater smoothed, primed, colored, & cleared wheels.

    We selected a metallic silver, gotta see in the sun. Glossy & flaky

    (See photo 02 & 03)

    Monday, the wheels will be wrapped with Nexus SU1 195/45r16, balanced & mounted.

    Lord willing, I will take pictures of the before (13") and after (16").

    Thanks alot...

    I've seen a few Mazda's out there run these... can't wait to see mounted in person. I'm sure the road won't be the same.
