In the past when I have seen this type of behavior it was the early signs of financial trouble. Taking deposits and using that money to pay for past due bills is the first sign of trouble. Go over to the Porsche forums and see how many people got hung out to dry when Fikse abruptly shut their doors. They were playing the same game up until the end.

I sure hope FM does not get burned by Jongbloed. They have been a great vendor to work with. Once again I admire Keith for not dragging his customers through the ringer by taking deposits.
Jongbloeds 3 pc wheels are not my issue nor do I get involved with that. And I never said anything was an excuse - just a reason.

Jongbloed has been around for a long time. Dunno their financials, but they are not here to "sell" wheels for a few months, take deposits and leave.

I guess they may, but that certainly isn't was has kept them around for years. In any case, wheels are VERY late. Having dealt with them before, I opted not to get in on GB.

Finally! We have some wheels in stock. And yes, we do currently have enough stock for new orders.

Silver and matte black 15x9s are here. They clock in at 15.4 lbs, which is higher than the estimates that were given to us. But they're here.

Dang. Those are about the same weight as a C3M.

I mean, they look fantastic, but aside from that... spendy, and heavy. Sad panda.

Damn, I was going to get these... but I am pretty sure the used set of 15 x 9 6UL's I purchased are lighter than this.

Anyone know the weight of the Gen2 6UL's?

Well, they are stronger than existing 6ULs and the C3M, so there's that. But the weight is what it is, nothing we can do about it.

Yes, 15x9 mounted with 225/45-15 tires. The tires were just what was handy, the silver ones have RA1s and the black ones have Nittos.

Heavy we can't do anything about, but we fixed spendy.

Massive price drop on Jongbloed wheels - Miata Turbo Forum - Turbo Kitten is watching you test compression.

And yes, we are giving a refund equivalent to the price difference to anyone who paid the previous price.

Got my 10s from Phil. Super fast shipping, and these wheels look amazing in person! I'm still not sure why I bought 10s in the first place, but I almost ordered another set after opening the first box.

Well those wend fast. I was hoping some of these would still be around in the spring when I could order a set.
