Google "scrub radius" and read for an hour, and then come back and apologize.

Did'nt wanna dig this thread back up, but figured it'd be better to post here than start a new thread for a simple question...I'm love 6ul's, but what wheels are these (Seen them many-a-time, just don't recall the brand/model):

In that offset sure, but in the proper offset I don't think they're all that ricey.

Damn so many wheels that look similar...I kinda like the way these look on the car and I was / am anti rice, well maybe not so much since I drive a miata ...I know the 6ul is most definitly a superior wheel from a track aspect, but I dont plan on really ever tracking my car or driving it compeditivly so these may be an option for me in the future...think I like the rotas

Rota RB:


Fastforward Drag:


Konig Rewind:


Panasports:


Sportmaxx 513:

Id go with Panasports or Rota RB. The rest look like they are too overdone on the lip.

The Panasport and the Rota are the closest and most faithful to the original Minilite design. The others are taking the classic Minilite look and making a rice casserole out of it.

I've seen 2-miatas on Konigs that cracked and either wouldn't hold air or went out of balance at the track. I don't trust my life with those.

I've also seen an HRE wheel die on a porsche in grandiose fashion.

Good thing I dont want the konigs...

On a serious note though, any known issues with the rotas or unhappy campers? I know they weigh more than they should...

I know a few people who track rota "spoon knock offs" with no problems.
