Hanabis look good to me.  Makes the second hand SSRs I'm selling look over priced: http://www.baautox.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=9104&rid=4#msg_9104  949 Racing seems to offer good value too.

As for 16" wheels, I know Andy Hollis' tests have been favorable for STS2: http://grassrootsmotorsports.com/news/category/project-cars/other-cool-cars-hanging-around-the-grm-office/1992-miata-sts2-project/page/2/

Happy hunting!

I suggest a 15x8 with the 205/50/15 falken azenis (8" tread width), or 225/45/15 hankook rs2 (8.4" tread width).  I can't tell if you have done any mods to your car yet, but once you start adding hp, you will want more tire than a 205.   Cool

Currently, I have around 190 rwhp and i am using 225/45/16 hankook rs2s.  When they were new, they handled the hp much better than my previous 205/40/16 falken azenis ever did.

You might ask Brian Goodwin, I sold my 35mm offset ENKEI RP-F1 15x7 before I had a chance to test fit them on the MSM:

http://www.good-win-racing.com/Mazda-Performance-Part/21-1050.html

They worked well on our Street Touring NA w/ 205/50 x 15 RA-1s.

Good Luck,

Barry

From Good-win-racing.com...

The ENKEI RP-F1 15x7 does not fit factory big brakes that were standard in 03-05 and optional from 01 on.
