rpf1 vs sportmax 002

i'm stuck on which wheels to go for (this is for a NA miata):
some notes on why i'm picking between these two:

sportmax 002 (would like to paint them in black):
+ cheaper
+ 15x8 0 or +15 offset
- fender rolling is required
- need to paint it black
- made in china

rpf1 (black):
+ lightweight
+ no fender rolling required
- 15x7 +35 offset (not as aggressive)
- not sure if i will like the look

which route would you go for? looks vs practicality...

i'm horrible at deciding.

thanks for any inputs.

Those RPF01's are WEAK sizing

The Sportmaxx's are better sizing however they are played the fuck out.

Unfortunately, fitment > originality....go with the sportmaxx and man up and roll.

weight, your NA miata, has the lowest amount of torque i've ever driven. I believe the RPFs weigh less. So i would go for hte RPF

I'd pick the sport maxx, just cause it has a better sizing. rpf1 are played out imo, and the sportmaxx will give a miata a better stance imo

I'd go for the rpf1's, but I honestly dont like the way they look in anything under whatever size x 9
