Hmmm, it's a thought. The Bridgestone RE-01Rs are cheaper in that size. Will a 15X7.5 Slipstream with a 45mm offset clear my brake rotors and front suspension or should I go with 40?

The trouble I run into with a Miata in CSP is that in order to be competitive I would have to spend a ton of money.
