I'm pretty sure you meant to link to the m.net group buy of the 6ul, j/k.

6ul is 15x8 and weighs 12lbs

Those do look pretty good though

My crappy BBS knock offs in 15x7 are 14 lbs and cost like $80 a piece new... so yeah. I'd prefer something under 12 lbs or it's not worth changing 'em. I'm looking at the tracklites at the moment they're like 10.5 lbs in 15x7 and $130 each.

Why 15x8s anyways? Seems like that's a hell of a lot of tire to stick under the car without flairs.

I like the 6ULs also, but adding it up on their site, the total comes to $978 + $71 shipping, whereas the same setup with these is $700 + mounting + shipping for the tires.
We'll say <$800 total versus $1050. Plus, I think these look better. :P

Why 15x8? FOR THA PIMPNESS OBVIOUSLY!

That's why I went with the 6ul's, I know I'm going to be able to fit 225/45/15 on the front and the rear with no problems.
