I hadn't heard that before.  Mazda puts three different tires on the
Miata.  None are that sticky.  Now the wheels are a different story.
They are quite light at 12 lbs for a 14" x 5.5" wheel.  Compare that
to BBS 14" x 6" wheels at 18 lbs.  They are supposedly lighter than the
Mini-Lights they are modeled after, too.
