Finally got my wheels on.  And this is how they look.  I like the scrappy, understated aesthetic, but I wish I'd gone a little taller because there's a slightly larger gap than stock.

i'm going to have to get a set of 16"s in gunmetal or bronze.  I def like that look...they look like the spoon sports wheels on their S2000.

I agree, a side shot would be nice.

I won't post the picture itself because it's so huge, but:

The more I look at that gap in the back, the more I wish I'd gone with 16" wheels and slightly taller tires.  Instead, I made weight my first priority.
I'm considering moving the Rotas to my '97 and buying something else for the MSM.

Good side view.

But you ARE right, that gap in back looks too big.
It doesn't seem quite right, hopefully it's just the picture,
maybe you were parked somewhat unevenly?

What was the offset on those? It looks like it might be more than the stock 40mm.

Nope, that's 40mm.
