i ordered 225/50/18 on an 18x7.5 +40 offset wheel.
im lowered on s-techs (1.4 all around)
should i have a smaller sidewall? what would you recommend?
Smaller sidewall for sure! 225/50 would be way to big even on a 17 inch rim, on a 18 that is huge. use this and see http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html
and your miles on the ODO will go up alot more becuase when your going 55 mph your speedo will read 60
225/40/18 would be a better match, closer to stock.

For race or everyday use?

sorry buddy, you need to try again. Those tires will be very large.
EDIT: quick explanation: see my official wheel and tire sizing guide for a quick explanation of that middle number in the tire size. It's not a straight up measurement of sidewall height.
