I’m wondering if anyone remembers/has the link to “miata tire converter”? It’s an online tire converter, showing the differences of two different sized tires in comparison. Height & Width.
Very nice looking Sport! Congrats!
IMO...The only mod left is to paint the fender flares and bummper trim to black.

Could you please shed some light for us? Nothing resulted in a search.

I checked out the used set of bfg's and the tread was actually really decent. No uneven wear w/50-60% left. $100 later and they were installed to my stock sagging mono leaf suspen. No problems w/31's, slight rub on the front wheel well trim, but am very satisfied!!! These...
Your right, better safe then sorry!
I even...lol...considered buying another firestone wilderness to match the one of my spare and use them...lol. The tread is still new...
Talk about putting my life at risk to save some cash.
LOL..I'm afraid I would not make it with the tires I curently have on...
Thanks for the input guys!!!
So, is it a 50% chance these tires will not fit with stock suspension, I'm not able to tt at this moment. I'm looking to just slap on the rubber and ride.
That's all for Q's...thanks...
Thanks for the speedy reply!
What if their closer to 40% :D Still not worth it? Hard to clear with my stock set-up? The rear is sagging like a typical sport. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Sorry for the 100,000,000,000,000th time question.
I could really use your help here, and I know I'm at the right place ;)
I found a complete set of used BFG's 265/75/16's for $100 CAD / $79 USD.

3. Can I fit these in...

Just an FYI!
I had no luck with purchasing Sea Foam here in Calgary, AB Canada, until last weekend.
A friend was also looking for the product, and e-mailed Sea Foam directly to find that we now have a solid local retailer. I too also tried contacting Sea Foam directly about a year ago...
Thanks for the reply!

Yeah these tires were new about 5 months ago. I bought the yokahama geo's and they wore out to fast for my liking. So the tires are uneven with wear due to poor alligment when I busted a tierod. I'm at fault for that.
I'll check into the tire...
I removed the front driveshaft last night and my steering/binding problem disappeared. So, at this point I'm thinking my transfercase and hubs are faulty. I'm a little slugish for performance, and feel like something is causing friction in the driveline, but I have no problems...
