    Is this the answer to our fitment issues with 15x8 wheels needing fender rolling?

    My situation:
    I have some new Enkei J-Speeds that the rear tires rub on bumps.
    I would prefer not to roll the fenders as it might affect how the mild flares that I bought will fit.
    I have some no-name 15x8 wheels on the Miata now with the same size tire and they don't rub.
    So maybe a slight offset change would fix my problem?
    Maybe I should go for these?
    They are lighter than the Enkei J-Speed wheels too.



    My Enkei J-Speeds look similar.


    I will be adding these flares

    A little bit to unpack, but here are the considerations for rolling/not rolling:


    • Ride height
    • Alignment
    • Tire sizing
    • Model (NA vs NB)


    All of those things have an effect on whether or not you need to roll your fenders.

    Oohh what the heck, I ordered a set.
    I figure I can get some cash back from the J-Speeds and the tires/wheels that are on the Miata now to offset (pun intended) the financial pain.

    If the wheels work out I may pick-up my son in Holland to watch the Miata's lap at Gingerman raceway at the K-Miata meet.

    I still won't be ready for a track day but maybe next year if I retire and have time to work on the car.
