 My Rota Grids on Toyos T1-S 215/16/40.  I think they look great my  Titanium MSM. Here's a link to my cardomain site http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/715406/3  The new pics are on page 3. Let me know what you think.
 
P.S. Will take better pics this weekend if weather permits.

Nice ride, that steering wheel must feel awesome. I like the rims and the caliper paint job as well afro

 The ride is great, it handles awesome. I  never had Toyos before , but they handle better than the parada specII that were on there before. On the dash is a dash cover that was supposed to say Titanium M-speed(due copyright) but they messed it up and just put Mspeed(idiots) oh well got it at 50% off. The steering well actually matches the red interior better than it seems on the pics. I'm going to probally order the FM downpipe today.

Yes, It is. I had it custom painted to color match with the car.

Really - from the picture I thought it was stainless!  Paintin g it the body color wasn't something I had thought about.  Any problems with seat travel or tilt with that roolbar?

No problems with travel or tilt. I'm only 5'3" so I had space to modify the windbllocker to fit in front of the Rollbar. laugh

man, out of all the years I've been around miata's and the hundreds I've seen with rollbars I'd never seen anyone paint it to match the car...  I had it done last year in hopes of being unique, and now you're the 3rd person on this board alone I've seen do it.....

 To be honest it wasn't even my idea. The guy who installed it forme came up with the idea. I was skeptical at first, but after it was done and installed it was love at first site. I was thinking of powder coating it the same color as the seat inserts.

 The steering matches almost perfect with the interior when you look at in person. I changed cause it's a little smaller in diameter and feels better when steering. Oh...and it was only $35. on ebay. afro
