Mita S Wheels & Tires Experiences/Reviews?

I'm thinking about picking up a set of Mita's Type-S replicas (https://www.mitamotorsports.com/nsx-exterior/s-wheel), in 16x7+40 & 17x9.5+45 and wondering if anybody has any experience or feedback on them. I see plenty of the info here from when they were first available on how to get a set, but nothing in the way of "I bought these and they are awesome/awful/they really don't rub/they really come alive with taller/shorter sidewalls" etc.

I'm stubborn on keeping factory 16/17 sizing, but any feedback on finding tires would also be much appreciated. Currently on stock seven blades, so I assume it wouldn't be that much of a difference.

Thanks.
 
plenty of good rubber for both street and track still available for 16/17, just go 215/45F and 255/40R.

I've heard no complains about MITA reps.

Mine were the first set made. I went with 16x7 (45 mm) and 17x9 (40 mm) My concept was to make the offsets like running a set of moderate spacers (10 mm front, 20 mm rear)) on OEM Type-S wheels. Car is still in assembly so I haven't had a chance to fit them yet. I went with Continental Extreme Contact Sport 205/45/16 and 245/40/17. Front fitment is perfect. For the rears, in retrospect I would go with 255, since it's a 9" wheel and not 8.5" like OEM 94-01. For you, since you have a 9.5" rear wheel, definitely go with the 255's.

Rears (on top). Ever so slightly stretched- 255's will look perfectly square.

These look great. Not sure how wide this rubber runs but wonder if 205F and 255R would be too much of a spread for TCS to handle. That's if you have one [emoji6]

I deleted TCS fully, including on the throttle body. :D But, the diameters should be ok for the TCS logic.
 
Hadn't even considered how TCS would feel about the extra width, but I would imagine it wouldn't be that upset, since I think 02+ was a 9" rear width anyways, and what's another half inch :wink:?

Have you loose-fitted them yet [MENTION=18194]Honcho[/MENTION]? Mita claims no rubbing (and I can't possibly see how they would with only a -15mm offset vs stock), but never hurts to have a real-world example.
 
It's not about the wheel width, but tire width. Indirectly but tire width will affect the front/rear ratio (since overall tire dia will be diff) and may throw TCS brain off.
 
Do you have any photos of the Mita wheels next to the OEM S wheels [MENTION=34522]NSX_n00b[/MENTION] has? It would be interesting to see how faithfully they were copied.

I don’t at the moment, but I’ll take one up to Honcho’s on Saturday and do a side by side comparison

We updated the center cap positioning to match more closely to the OEM ones as well as now using a larger cavity rim to allow more Big brake kits.

Overall aside from those nothing else changed from the 2020 model and the 2021 model.
[MENTION=18194]Honcho[/MENTION] anticipating to see the wheels mounted on.

@trackaddict has them installed.
 
I just took delivery of these wheels in the 18/17 combo set. Ill post up when I get tires mounted. The washi grey is a lot lighter in color than the website pix
 
Do you have any photos?
 
Here is my car with the S Wheels (17/17). Washi Gray. I agree that the color is lighter than what is represented on Mita's web page. I am running Stoptech Trophy calipers (ST-40) front and rear. No issues with clearance. 215/40 front and 255/40 rear.

Oh, I see 17/18. Can you please let me know what width and offset you went for as o really like the look of the car. Thank you
 
I don't think the Mita S wheels are available any longer as I am not seeing them on their web site.
