I've been using a great site for years. It's called WillTheyFit.com. You can measure off you current wheels to see how much further out you could poke them and how far in the can go as well. It's a great tool to actually visualize how the wheel will sit compared to your current wheel.

I think a lot of it comes down to the wheel offset. You may want to do a google search and see if anyone else has gone with the 15x8 wheels and what sort of hurdles they came across. Alternatively, you could start going through some of the heavier modified Miata's on here using the search function.I do vaguely remember coming across a wheel size calculator thing that showed if a wheel/tire combo would fit your car or not. I believe it was even geared towards Miata's but I haven't been able to find it. http://www.willtheyfit.com/ might be your best bet in that aspect but I'm not sure.

I don’t own a Miata so I’m not too sure exactly but I have a 00’ Civic with 16x8 offset +20 and I had to roll the rear quarter panels because the tires would run and I wanted to go lower. My cars not slammed but it is fairly low. Hope this helps
Looking for a 91 miata hard top in fairly good condition
