If you put Tungsten and Nickel on the ground next to each other in a normally lit room and asked 10 people to put the wheels back in their proper boxes, half of them would get it wrong.

Jebus those 15x11's are gonna be awesome with some 275's! I can only imagine the grip levels with some A7's.

Good to know. Now I have to decide if I want to keep the 9s in case the 245/40 is extinct soon, or step up to the 10s, at which point, I can't run a 225 again if the 245 isn't around.

Decisions, decisions.

Within about a year or so there will be a 200tw 245/40/15.

I don't see the 245/40/15 RC-1 going away. I am told sales are sufficient to keep it in production now and there are still a lot of folks that don't know it exists yet.

That's the kind of answer I was looking for. I actually don't mind the 100tw on the RC-1, a few guys have said it wears more like a 200tw anyway. Not concerned with whether the tires to come are slicks or radials, as long as I can get them. I'll probably wait to get them over the winter. The 10s will be a continued production right? I remember they were around before and then disappeared.

The difference is the RC-1 is virtually worthless in inclement weather and might get you pulled over everyone once in a while. A 200tw is a big deal for guys that never go to the track and have over 200whp.

We'll keep making any variant 6UL we offer as long as is there demand, whether that's 2 weeks or 2 decades.

Luckily inclement weather is not a concern, and there's way too much crime in Philadelphia for police to worry about my tires

Gawd damn that is wide. Anyone ever run a 225 on a 10 here? Similar to 205 on a 9? 245's are out of budget for now, but 10s aren't much more expensive than 9s. And I don't want buyers remorse picking 9s.

Lordy, Who's going to be the first to roll a Miata in a curve from sheer grip alone?

I have Forgestars on my C6Z. 18x10 & 18x12 I think.

But yeah, we do have Corvette wheels on our radar. At least 18 months away though. Many other sizes ahead of them on the list.

Sweet baby jesus. Sign me up for at least 2 of those 11s. Soon I won't have any grip at all with my current 15x8 setup. Which reminds me I need to make a sale thread for my Konigs soon.
