here, this should help you:
https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthrea...ge=1&%23GO=

the search was for TRD springs and 18" wheels. most of the profiles on the 1st page have pictures that can help you decide what direction you want to go in.

^^ that depends on what tire size you are trying to use. there are a few other factors as well. first off:

1. TRD springs LOWER 1"
2. 18s HIGHER by 2" (if you originally have the stock 16" alloy)

now, the stock wheel sidewall is 55. something to remember is that for each "5" added you basically higher 1" and each "5" subtracted is lowered 1". for example..if my starting tire size was 215/55/16 and i decided to go 215/50/16 i would effectively 'lower' my car 1". and vice-versa..if i decided to go 215/60/16 i would effectly 'higher' my car 1" just by changing the tire sidewall.

SO...

if you chose the tire size 225/35/18 for your new 18"s (for example) your end result would be 1" lower than the stock tire/wheel setup (215/55/16) WITHOUT the TRD spring drop. if you add the TRD spring drop..your car is lowered a total of 2 inches. thumbsup

this should help a little if you plan on fooling with different sidewall setups:
http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html

and i'm sure you already know what the different numbers mean in a tire setup..but just in case i'll use the stock example of 215/55/16 the first set "215" refers to the tire's tread width (215 would be a skinnier tire than 225). the second set "55" refers to the tires sidewall (55 is a higher sidewall than 35) and the last set "16" refers to the rim size (if you have a 16" rim you need to get 16" tires. if you have an 18" rim you need to have 18" tires) thumbsup

even with 18 inch rims and TRD springs, it will lower the car about 1.2 inches than stock?

putting on 18's will increase the height of the car in the front and the back... putting on TRD springs lowering it 1.2 in the front and 1 in the back will decrease the space and lower the car 1.2 inches more than stock height?

i got lowered springs, 18" mags, 215 x 35 x 18 toyo tyres, and it seemed to raise my car a little, maybe 1.5 cm to 2.5 cm higher. Hitting the body kit less then i did before. my standard rims were those crappy 16" alloys lol.

TRD springs provide a 1" drop, if you want your car to look flush and sort of low, I'd suggest you choose another brand of springs thumbsup

try Tein S-Techs - 1.4" drop thumbsup
