    SSR/ RS Watanabe RS-8 14x6 et 25 4x100

    4 SSR / RS Watanabe RS-8 Wheels in a near-perfect Miata fitment. 4x100 ET25. I purchased these for my '91 BRG, which I'm prepping to sell (bought a '94R in white). I figure they're worth more alone than including them with a car that I already expect to lose money on. But just how much more?

    The centers were removed and powdercoated by a "local" (2 hours away) shop, Performance Paint Products, Inc. I then sourced all new stainless hardware. The lips could be polished more, as they have some mild oxidation. No bends or rash, spare a few small spots. The inside of the barrels still have some pitting and such, I cleaned them up some but didn't strip them all the way down. Aluminum valve stems, which I assume are SSR (but not labeled in any way, much like Enkei's aluminum stems) are present with matching caps on all 4.

    60 views, 0 replies. I guess I'll list them at $1200 and go from there?

    Did speedypenguin ever sell his 15" RS8's? I don't recall seeing them listed...

    No real direct comparisons, but I suppose 15's might me more desirable for tire selection nowadays anyway (except 14's just look RIGHT on these cars, at least in my opinion). Thank you for the input!

    The +25 offset make your RS8's a rare find and much more valuable over the +34 and up variations which are much more common . . . in my opinion.

    I really like them but am not in the market for wheels now. Good luck with sale.
