It’s time for our first mod on the Mazda Miata, we are upgrading wheels and tires! Changing your wheels and tires can completely change the look of your car and also drastically change the handling dynamics. The selection process for wheels and tires is more than just picking what you think looks good, trust us we’ve been there. You really want to make sure that things fit and look the way you want them too. You might want to slam your car and have stretched tires or maybe you want that gt look and want the perfect square fitment. We’ll guide you and show you how to determine what actually fits on your car, and by the end you should be able to find the perfect fitment for your own car and not just a Mazda Miata.
We have a new channel!
Money Pit is where you get to learn about cars as we work on them. Each ep we’ll breakdown how each component works and then we’ll upgrade it. Join us in our journey to build cool cars, learn about them, and drive the crap out of them!
Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

I'm looking at Michelin pilot sport tires A/S 3. One version has a speed rating of 95V and the other is 95W.... My question is why would anyone go with the lower speed rating?? Is the one with the higher speed rating reinforced making it heavier???

To add regarding tire pressure: driving with tires inflated to max is dangerous, as air expands with heat, about 0.1 bar with every 10*C, not only with ambient temp but also due to actual contact with the tarmac and in the end can go well beyond the max rating. One risks tire explosions which at moderate speeds can be fatal.

Same wheel as Chris fox used on his honda del Sol, but only difference is that Chris used a bronze and dark green colour , and the Miata is looking great
Deathsneeze Vor Monat
you forgot to mention the most important reason to go with 15" wheels over 14" wheels: tire selection. There are not a lot of options for 14" tires in the sizes miatas use, while there are a lot more options for 15" wheels

Really informative video One thing worth mentioning is that for Off Road tires the measuring system is often entirely in Imperial Units. A typical tyre for something like Jeep XJ would be 30x9.5 R15 so 30 inches Tall (entire wheel height), 9 and a half inches wide (tyre width) on a 15 inch diameter rim.

I've got a Mitsubishi GTO, factory recommended Tyre size is 225/50/17 front and 245/45/17 rear. I wanna put 245/45/17 front & 265/40/17 rear. Basically getting wider tyres that fit my 8jj front rim and 9jj rear. Now I'll be driving 240 km/HR meaning 150 mph. I've heard sports cars tyres expand on high speeds so is it going to be good or bad getting wider tyres? Thanks.

I wonder how many people see videos like this then go and buy track/summer tires thinking they're gonna get amazing grip on the street. Those tires would NEVER get up to optimum temperature on the street.

Damn this actually explained stuff pretty well. Its crazy to me how the '16 370z Sport have such high offsets. So essentially If I go to a lower offset like around 15mm or so, it should help the wheel go more towards the fender since the OEM offset is like 40mm?

Hey, I don't think you covered Flow Formed wheels which is a new process that comes in just under forged in your weight/strength/price pecking order. Maybe also cover bolt centric or hub centric, and hub centric rings to use as an adapter when swapping with other OEMs - like old Audi to new Audi rims. Finally, with offset and wheel spacers, maybe explain the kingpin angle or axis of inclination for steering load and dartiness off of bumps as you move away from the center of the contact patch? What is it? It's an imaginary line viewed from directly in front of the wheel drawn through the upper and lower steering knuckle pivot points - tilted inward on top and out toward the bottom. It should intersect with the ground near the center of the tire's contact patch. You can alter where it intersects by changing the tire height and offset. Ideally you want it to intersect with the center of the tire's contact patch. That yields lower steering effort and reduced tire wear. The distance away from center of the tire is your scrub radius.

It kind of bugs me when the yellow dot isn't aligned with the valve stem. I always make sure it is just because then all 4 look the same but then also because you use fewer weights when balancing it.

You got me started again. Rim is the steel/aluminum thing you wrap a tire/tyre around. Thanks for pointing out the tire/tyre pressure. How about the seriousness of the tire age with the four digit code is used to determine when your tire/tyre was created and the closer you get to six years, the more the rubber has deteriorated and may fail. The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) says tires expire in . should not be put into service if they are more than old. ( Father's sonny son's friend killed by old failed tires.
