Anyone run a non NA-1R 15/16 wheel combo?

+1 on this... I'm interested in finding near OEM offset TE-37 in 15/16 if possible.

Volk used to make 15" rims with 5-114.3 bolt patterns, but they are no longer listed in their catalog.

After going from the OEM 16/17 to the 15/16, the 15/16 is definitely the way to go.

Perhaps the TE-37 and the like have to be special ordered?
 
I would think that this would actualkly handle and feel excellent, maybe Enkei makes something?

I would maybe go for a little more aggressive offset, +35-40 all around?
 
One could do RPF1 in 16x7 and 17x9 or 16x8 and 17x10...

As for 15/16, I am still looking.
 
Didn't DAL Motorsports run a 15/16 combo? I think it was the SSR Type C wheel.
 
OEM NSX offsets from the wiki:

15x6.5" +55mm (205/50R15 @ 33psi)
16x8" +60mm (225/50R16 @ 40psi)

Going to 15/16 really does help the feel of the car: in a non power steering NSX, steering effort feels lighter and has a...nicer ride, suspension seems to "work" faster.

IMHO, there is no reason to run a larger wheel than what came OEM unless you are running bigger brakes, besides looks.

The SSR are available in 15x7 +42 and 16x7 +42.

FWIW, and at the risk of sounding like a shill, D-force can make custom wheels, but their MOQs means needing at least 50 people interested for a set. Custom means correct bore sizing so no need for rings, either. http://dforcewheels.com/pages/products.php

Sector 111 OEMs wheels from them for their offering for the Exige. http://sector111.com/products/performance/wheels/coming-soon-ethos-wheels.cfm

With the number of OEM 5 spoke wheels out there and their price, it's the way to go. The one thing I'd like to see would be a center cap that just covers a bore for the OEM 5 spoke.

(edit: not my car above)

It's a good look. But given how far the hub sticks into the bore, it will be practically impossible to do.

I'm sure if you look hard enough you could find something that'll work.

That might be a job for my 3D printer. :) A shallow cap with a nice tight fit might work.
 
If you can find some old enkei rpo-1 they came in nsx friendly sizes.
