Another wheel, cost effective, is the TRM C1. http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/WheelCloseUpServlet?target=runWheelSearch&initialPartNumber=C157542400CG&wheelMake=TRMotorsport&wheelModel=C1&wheelFinish=Light%20Grey%20Painted&showRear=no&autoMake=Mazda&autoModel=Miata&autoYear=1994&autoModClar=

It's cheap. Not the lightest. Not the strongest. But it works well enough for autoX. 15x7.5 wrapped in 195s.
I run a set on my STS civic, which is nationally competitive (when driven by a good driver! I still suck). Those wheels can also be found on multi-national champ J. Wong's old black Civic.

Are people still going with 195s on 7.5" wheels? I haven't been out in a little over a year.

We've pretty much all switched over to 205 Rival S or RE71R. I only saw one set of Toyos all last year (someone was using them for rain tires, used them one run and I never saw them again)... 205s also.

Yeah I read a good comparison on the rival s, the toyo and the re71r. It looks like the best option is the re71r.
