Also theres a significant price between these sizes as well so I'm looking to for some insight on what size is the best bang for buck. Also what would be a proper size for the front wheel 18x9.5 based on which X rear size I go? I'm assuming theres certain staggered tire sizes that wont work properly and in return I'll have a horrible handing m3
The best way is to look at the tire manufacturer's specs for approved rim sizes, and to use http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html to find a comparable diameter tire.

Other tire options:
-Nitto NT01
-Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Spec
-Bridgestone RE-11
-Michelin Pilot Cup
