A newbie question here, i currently run 265/70/16's on my d22 and can get a set of 265/75/16's for nix,
questions are will they go straight on my rims? (sounds silly but wanna be sure as i am a dumba$$)
Also, is that small size difference any noticable?

Sorry for dumb questions but i am learning lol

3.4% increase. Somewhat noticeable.

IE, if you do 3000rpm at 110, you'll now do 2900.

Yep, I assume they are 7 inch rims, if so they will go on the rims no problems, Thats the biggest tyre most companies will recommend for that size rim though.

Tire size calculator (http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html)

This tyre size calculator shows you exactly how much bigger they will be, 1 inch in diameter. Just make sure you have enough clearance for them.

Do you have a lift at all? If not you may have to trim/bend/mod the inside bit of your front mudflaps.

If you do alot of towing or carry a tone in the back often keep the 70 series tyres.

General driving the 75 series tyres are fine, I just dont recommend for towing etc.
