Wheels- 15" -O.Z. Superleggera

Applicable to: '90 - '97 1.6 liter

15" O.Z. Superleggera Wheels w. silver finish (4/100) w. 36mm offset.

None-purchase based upon weight, quality, look and the rep. of the company.

I couldn't be happier. They are on the pricy side (for me) but at 10.4Lbs they seemed to be the only "light" wheel that looked right. The finish seemed deeper and smoother than others and consequently is very easy to clean. Aswell, the offset pushes the wheels out to the corners a little more giving the car a broader stance without the weight penalty of 205mm tires. I'm currently running 195/50/15' Toyo T1's, and the combination has proven to be more than adequate for my driving enjoyment.

White 16 inch OZ's, no longer available.

Great wheels, add a great appearance to the car.

I got these along with my Yoko A-520's. A bit heavy for a wheel, but the appearance allows me to overlook that. Smooth ride, and on PA roads, not even a bend from hitting the PennDOT potholes.

15 inch Superlaggera wheels

These are replacements for my bent M-edition wheels. They look awsome. I was concerned at first as the silver finish is a little lighter in color than in pictures on the web. They are one of the lightest ( 11 lbs) wheels in the market and have the proper offset. Hub centric adapter was also included. They are holding up fine to the many potholes in my area.

OZ Racing Volcano's 17"

17" Wheels. Oz Racing, model "Volcano".

Beautiful! These wheels look like they were made for the Miata! A serendipitus benifit is the color. The center section is silver which matches the paint on my silver 2000 Miata perfectly. I was afraid that the wheels would look too big and that the side wall of the tire too small but they look perfect. Another concern was weight. These wheels are a couple of pounds heavier than stock but haven't degraded performance noticably. Ride is a bit sharper and handling is in a word, "WOW". I have a set of Pirelli P7000 SuperSports 205 40 and the jury is still out on those. They do ride much quieter than the stock Michelin's. The lateral stability is as good or better. Just an opinion haven't been out to the skid pad. Bottom line, very cool addition.

Fantastic wheels!

OZ Racing Saturn Plus alloy wheels, 16 by 7.5 inch

[11/1/99] Reviewed by: Jeroen de Kruijff

Applicable to: '90 - '97 '99 + 1.6 liter 1.8 liter

Recently bought these wheels after tedious comparisons. They look absolutely superb (it's a very clean design and I think the six spoke design complements the Miata rather well) on my 1992 yellow Miata, though I would have preferred them in a 7 inch rather than 7.5 inch width. I did not check on the weight, though, which I regret, as they are (too) heavy. Offset is also a non-standard 37 mm. Not ideal, but acceptable if you are willing to put up with some steering corrections under braking over some undulations. Again, looks are absolutely superb (especially without the hubcaps, though if you want to permanently expose the lug nuts, you would have to machine away the supports for the hubcaps) and so is the quality of the wheels. I use 205/45R16 Yokohama A-520s on them which I can highly recommend. Because of the weight of the wheels (wheels with tires weigh in at close to 20 kilogram i.e. 44-45 lbs) I might be looking for different wheels soon.
