215/40-R16 Yokohama S.Drive tires by Alan Baker
on 16x7 or 16x8 rims. The tires are 19 lbs., and I'm looking for rims that weigh less than 15 lbs--preferably less than 14. Why the S.Drives? They seem very well regarded as all-around performance tires, but are rated particularly well in wet traction... ....and I do live in Vancouver.

Just for Fun by Chris D'Agnolo[_2_]
Just to stir the pot a little, I'd love to hear how many Miatas folks have owned and approximately how many miles they have put on those Miatas. To start it off I can say that I've owned 2. - 1992 SE Black and Tan (put ~75k on it over ~5 yrs) and currently - 1999 Base model Black / Black / Black...

Synthetic vs. Regular Brake Fluid by Wileyman
I am changing out the rubber brake lines with stainless steel on my '90 Miata and need to bleed the entire brake system. Trying to decide if I should go with a synthetic brake fluid like Valvoline or a regular DOT 3/4 like Castrol GT/LMA. All input is appreciated. Wileyman

Mazda3 clunk by andy-k
I have a 2004 Mazda3 (manual transmission) that has just been serviced (non main-dealer) after flying through its MOT (not same place as service). Since servicing I've noticed on starting the engine and pulling away that when I reach a certain road speed (normally shortly after changing up...

Miata Poll - What would you do if your Miata were gone today? by pws[_1_]
If you were to lose your current Miata today, be it totaled, stolen, whatever, and received enough money to cover a replacement, all the way up to an optioned-out brand-new one, (say $30,000 to be safe), what would you do: buy an older miata and keep the larger money difference? get a brand-new...

Downshifting by CR
Downshifting: yes or no? Double-clutching: necessary or not? Comments and suggestions welcome... Since there are fewer 5/6-speed manual transmission autos sold in the U.S. these days, perhaps it is a lost skill?

Can you id this part? by pws
I am 99% certain that this came off of a miata, probably from under the dash. Before I go digging for part numbers, does anyone recognize what it is? http://img.inkfrog.com/pix/pat/miatapart.jpg Thanks! Pat

yes, it's a mileage thread by pws[_1_]
I was wondering what people are seeing as far as real-world MPG for the NC Miata (2006-2010), with a 5-speed. I am just curious about what is the best it is capable of on the highway with the top up as well as top down, and what it gets when driven with a heavy foot around town. Thanks, Pat

The early ND reviews are in and it is good by Bruno, Copenhagen - Denmark
Here is a Road & Track quote: "Is it the best Miata ever? Clearly—but that's like calling What's Going On "a really great Marvin Gaye record." It's more than a great Miata. It's a wake-up call to the people who build cars around the world, a flag thrust defiantly in the faces of the people who...
