They don't go that low either, mine are as low as possible on the front (no thread left!) and as low as is bearable on the rear and the arches only just cover the tops of the tyres...
Also, if you've got the same as me then save yourself the time of taking them off again and chop the bumpstops before you fit them. I've got about 40mm of rubber for a bumpstop to give you an idea - before I did this, the spring wasn't even seated properly - so the whole of the rear of the car was just resting on the bumpstop meaning no travel! Scary in the wet... LOL.
Just get Meisters, will last longer than HSD' too.
wheels arrived on firday all the way from the states, only took 5 days for them to be delivered very quick service.
just a quick iphone picture for you guys will upload better ones soon
Watch out for lacquer peel, between the split bolts.
cheers for the heads up, ill make sure to keep an eye on that
lovely stuff, keep it up!
Looking at getting a mx5 myself will keep a close eye on this thread.
Will look lovely once finished.
I say it cos its quite common, happened to everyones i know, including mine.
Meister aren't in the same league as HSD lol. D2 and the likes, Yes. HSD, no.
HSDs have superior damping.
test fitted the wheels and.... its going to be nice and flush also got a super jdm spec gear stick and a few other little bits, payday needs to hurry up for some real progress..... what would be the best steel or metal for a skid pan? thickness and grade?
some good arching rolling needed there. Mine are +13 and rub all the time. Should look good once it is lower and sitting on those wheels.
Loving that fitment! I was always dying to buy wide/positive offset wheels and fit the wide arches.
Regarding suspension I heard great things about the coilovers that Performance5 make.. PureDrive I think they're called. I drove a S/C 1.6 with them fitted and they were very nice indeed.
I put Tein Flex on mine, capable suspension (they were the friggin competition spec ones so you'd hope so!!). Able to go uber-low whilst still providing damping (although I put it back to a sensible height after crushing the chassis rails in the first week) but I can't help feel they were a waste of money compared to other popular units. Build quality was pretty average aswell!!
