MX5 wheel sizes

The wheels on my track MX5 based Haynes look like original mx5 ones at 14inch.

Is it possible to fit 13in rims over the calipers does anyone know. I ask because I have an abundant supply of sticky ex-race tyres but they fit 13 weller wheels.

It depends on what the donor car was. If it was a mk2.5 then no. Pro race 1.2 will fit over a standard 1.8 mk2 256mm disk.
The Mk 2.5 has 272mm disks and they’re only foot for 15” wheels.

I believe the donor was a 1998 NB engined 1.6
