Default Konig WIDEOPEN In Stock.....15x8 and just 13.4 pounds!

New Konig WIDEOPEN 15x8 have arrived....both 20mm 15x8 and 25mm 15x8 in stock!

Time for the weigh in! Weight came in real close to the prototype at 13.4 pounds for 25mm version. Picture here still in the plastic on the scale of the all silver 25mm version and weight for machined lip 20mm version just slightly more at 13.6 pounds.

Here is a picture of the pads...showing that all the 5mm offset difference is in the pad. The front of the wheel, lip width, spoke profile, are the same in both the 20 and 25mm version. This shot neatly explains why the 20mm is two ounces heavier.

These are great looking wheels at a great price but I cannot help but think of Goatse with a name like Wide Open

Ah...no. They don't ship to the other side of the planet for free. Start by sending us an email with your full address through the 'contact us' setup on the website and we can get that quoted up for you.

I really wish my RPF1's were closer to this offset, great looking wheel, and I certainly haven't found anyone better to do business with than good-win-racing.

This is as close as you get to an RPF1 in this offset and 15x8. Note that KONIG and ENKEI work together. They have various license arrangements (read about KONIG borrowing some of Enkei's MAT production techniques on the Konig website). When Enkei refused to make us a 15x8 version of RPF1, Konig agreed. The tooling for the center section is a suspiciously precise replica of the RPF1 center section......so precise that my guess is that Enkei participated on some level with the tooling for the WideOpen wheel (though nobody will confirm this).

Have you heard of any fitment issues running the 15x8 25mm offset with 225/45/15s on an NA? Besides fender rolling of coarse.
