    FD/FN2/EP3 Wheel Setup Guide

    I've noticed that alot of people have asked questions in regarding what wheel and wheel sizes would work and not work on either their FD, EP3 or FN2

    I've decided to make a thread in which everyone contributes what wheel sizes they have ran in the past/present/future and suspension setup to help all those who are deciding on wheels.

    Here is a template you guys can use

    Front Wheel and Tyre Size:
    Rear Wheel and Tyre Size:
    Suspension:
    Guard Modifications:
    Issues with Setup:

    if you choose the 17" tyre to have the same diameter as the 15" tyre then you have no problems

    here's a useful link: http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html
