    SSR RS Watanabe 14x6 4x100 ET25 Wheels - Like Panasport. Minilite, CLASSIC.

    4 Speed Star Racing / RS Watanabe "RS8" RS Eight 4x100 14x6 lightweight aluminum wheels. For those of you unfamiliar with these, there was a brief period in Japanese wheel manufacturing while SSR owned RS Watanabe, making these a fairly limited collaboration. Epic Miata builds including The Blue Potato and Rooster both had RS8's. They are LIGHT (have read 11.2lbs each, not acually weighed, but very very light), and two-piece. The centers have been removed, blasted, and powdercoated in a lightly metallic silver, and the polished lips and barrels have been cleaned up, but not completely redone. There is all new stainless hardware on all 4, front and back. Included are 4 aluminum valve stems and 16 stainless acorn lug nuts.

    Why am I selling? I'm trying to sell my '91BRG, which I had these on. I still have the OE 'Daisy' Enkei's that will go back on that car, and I bought some RPF1's for my 1994. I'd be tempted to just stow these in a corner on display, but the funds would helpful to buy some parts for the 1994.

    Asking $1200 plus actual shipping. Will come in 4 RPF1 boxes just like new Enkei's.

    matthew.f.lambert@gmail.com for fastest response. Please bear with me, I'll be away beginning June 21st for approximately two months. My lovely wife will be handling shipping and such, should they sell while I'm away.

    Thanks, -Matt

    My goodness, If I had the space I would have bought the whole car with the wheels.

    Thank you both! It definitely doesn't look as good with the OE wheels back on...

    Bump... These are still available! Even though I'm deployed, they're all boxed up and ready to go. My wife would gladly ship them!

    I love these wheels, too. If I were going to wheel-horde, these would stay. I went with RPF1's on my 94R, and would like to recoup some of the money spent there...

    They'll go on eBay in a month, but I'd love to see them stay with the Miata crowd!
