Default Konig wheels input

I'm new to turbo Miata but I like you guys already. Im sponsored by Konig wheels and I currently run their new dial in 15x9 flow form rim on my race car.
I would like to know is any one has tried them or is considering trying them?

Sexy!

Love the hood prop

Working a deal with local Miata club member to buy his Konig Wideopens 15X8 w/ 205/50 Toyo's on them.

Will need meat and footprint when I get my turbo Miata back from Bell Engineering, a sponsor of this site.

Love the look on your car though

That hood prop is a one on design, custom from Matco tools

Thank you for the compliments.
Just so you know the wide opens are heavy yet relatively inexpensive.

I loved them when I ran them on my car but mounting stiff sidewall tires it was a biiiitch

Yeah, I've read that to mount stiff tires, it should be done upside down for some reason (per Goodwin Racing website)

My '01 stockers (16"X6.5") weight in at 16+ lbs, the 15X8 Konig is 13.4, a better trade up for sure, or down, however you look at it

My car will have 225~ whp/ 210~tq when it gets finished, will pretty much overwhelm the stock rubber...Cooper Zeon ZPT or something like that.

So they sponsored you, so you come on here and create several threads to talk them up?

I see.

They have done a lot for me over the years, I suppose it seems fair to mention them, give facts if questioned about their rims and see who likes them and who doesn't.

No harm in letting the population know what I know about the rim company

the fact that they make cool looking wheels for a good price is pretty cool
I own a set.
the fact that they knock off others' designs and basically everything else is not cool.

so no, not cool company. Crappy company. But most of us dont care, cause we like the wheels

Vlad prop count is SIX-SIX-SIX. LOL.

Running the Avanti Storms (really similar wheel) on my Red car and they've held up well so far.

But hey, I tried right. As a newbie i have no voice in this forum, that much is obvious, so I'm not going to push this.

I entered this forum leaving all unprofessional opinions aside. i will continue to do so even if I don't like reposts, repeats, others opinions or others style.

I bring to the table only what I know.

No need to mount stiff tires upside down......you can't always do that, in most cases you can't.

It really depends on the wheel whether you mount tires upside down or not..
