Too bad the spokes on 15" look no where like the picture in OP.

Thanks for posting those pics. Good to see how much pad there is at the center.

Some Enkei designs don't scale perfectly attractively down into 15-in. sizes. The RPF1 always looked a little goofy in 15, and the NT03+M isn't right in sizes smaller than 17. But then I don't think 15x7 TE37s look as good as the larger sizes, either.

So they are .4lbs heavier than a 6UL, cost $260 more a set, look almost the same minus a tuning fork. Am I missing something? Why are these so cool, I know because a Miata vendor didn't take his time to make them.

^ agreed. The thing that also gets me are the spokes protrude out pass the rim/face where in larger sizes, they look flushed/concaved toward the center.

Side note, just received my set of bronze 949 wheels.

For some reason, they aren't listing it for the Miata. I think the link above is for an '05 MINI Cooper (base model), so that's where the sizing comes from. It's a 24"-ish OD on the MINI.

It's a little annoying that the Rack's system is only loaded with one recommended tire size per car/diameter, but they do give you the option of choosing your own size if you know better, so the fact that you know enough to criticize it indicates it's not actually a problem for you.

I criticize it because the 195/60/15 + 15x8,9 stretched look seems to dominate clubroadster, as if TR recommended this just for them.

They're going to be cheaper and most likely better looking.

Well they did. Anyone interested in a performance wheel would choose the lighter 6ul for another $200. It's a wheel made for poserfags looking for a hella mad tyte stance. These should be referred to as RIMZ.
