Re: FAQ: Stock Wheel/Tire Info & Aftermarket Wheel Essentials (Updated 04/19/10)

Tire Upgrade
215/45/17 Tires should fit on stock 17x6.5" rims. (1.8% "too fast" reading on the speedometer.)

225/45/17 Tires are not recommended for anything less than a 7" rim. (So they are not recommended for the stock rims.)

Tire size Calculator: http://miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html

Tire sizes that maintain same outer diameter of stock tires +/- 0.5%:
  • 225/45-17
    225/40-18
    225/35-19
    215/30-20[/list]
