Default Another Question MX250 wheels/tires/offset

Hi,
I'd like to make my final decission about the wheels and order them.
The Lenso BSX: in my opinion they do fit perfect in black/silver.

- Can I order them in 7.5x16 offset 25 for front and rear axle?
- Is the tire dimension 205/45-16 for front and rear ok?
- What size of spacers would you recommend for rear axle?

Due to no power-steering and the low axle load resulting in low contact pressure, I tend to take this "smaller" tire size.

Greetings
Jan

ET 25 is about right, it means you can put them on the front with no spacers and use 50 mm spacers on the rear.

Tyres are quite difficult to judge without seeing them on the car and that you might lower the suspension.

Check my thread hardegger, as I have used similar to lenso bsx (BBS replicas) however I used a wheel called FYK which are available in 9j et10 which fill the rear arch pretty satisfactory without spacers.

Et20 is perfect for the front.

So you should be looking at a staggered set.

Hi,
I just bought the Lenso BSX in 7x15 et (offset)20. My plan is to use 195/50-15 tires at front and rear.
What dimension of spacers would you recommend me?
I guess at the front axle there's no need for them, rear axle 25mm each side?

Greetings Jan

Your going to need some big spacers, particularly at the rear due to your choice of wheel
I'm on 15x9 et10 rear and 15x8 et10 front and the rear is still 20 mm short of the arch.
I would say your going to need 50mm at the rear and 25mm at the front

Here's mine for reference


On each Axel I reckon, but wait for a few other peoples opinions.
Freakyparts sell the wilder size spacers for mx5

WOW
really beautyfull !!!

I'm calculating possible tire sizes and prefer 195/55 R15 due to a diameter of 23.46" with no need for correcting tachometer

Put the wheels on , then measure from the centre of the wheel how far you want it to come out. Then you will know how big to order the spacers. Freaky parts will make to order too.

Yes, that might be the best solution BUT I haven't started yet so the kit in on a pallet and the mx5 is still driving "original"

Cheers

Was told it was not possible to make adapters on phone to reputable firm using cad had to go from 100x4 PCD to 108x5 all three quotes from USA said don't use Chinese (who wanted to use steal) Us use billeted aluminium went with the one who asked for most measurement, very happy except for import tax, also have 50mm spacers on rear.

These are genuine wheels off a 1982 308, refurbished by me fitted with tall period tyres as that was the look I was after.
