Call Marc at Carbon Miata. He just finished the bucks for NB GT style fenders with cutouts and is working on a set of plain wide fenders for the NB to just clear the 15x11/275 combo. I sent him measurements yesterday. OGK will get the big fenders. I'm toying with the idea of running 245/40 VR-1's on 15x10's on Deviate with some sorta big fender. With ~250whp or so, it could probably use them.

The only thing I don't like about these wheels is the fact that it's now so easy and cheap for all my competitors to go to 11's

I'm seriously thinking about ordering a set just so I can have 2 sets of 11's so I'm not mounting tires as often.

Now if we can just get them made in silver

You can always rattle can. With some patience and a can of clear lacquer you can actually get an attractive and durable finish. Choose charcoal if you are going to paint or plasti-dip.

Being a Miata guy, I take valuable resources away from much higher volume 17" fitments to do these geeky sizes like the 15x11 and 15x6 for CS. I love having that luxury, no board or CFO to answer to. The compromise is fewer finish options to lower SKU counts. We have enough wheels in stock now to require a very large fulfillment warehouse to handle them. More sizes coming. So yeah, sorry only two finish options but it's either that or no 15x11 at all.

I totally understand. I was just being silly. Thanks again for bringing these to the market.

Just ordered my 15x10s. Will be running Rival/S 225/45 for now.
Looking forward to see how they fit on my car. I guess I need to get the fenders rolled and maybe pulled a little.

All 6UL's (all sizes) ordered directly from 949 Racing are now drop shipped from a separate fulfillment warehouse. Too many wheels to fit in our little building. Your next email from us will have a tracking number. Enjoy!

Considering we originally planned to ship these first week January, I'll decline the props. Our fulfillment warehouse are rock stars though!

I ordered knowing that was the optimistic time frame but it was possible to slip. I got my tracking number today and will have the wheels before the season starts so that's what's really important. Thank you for doing a run of these sizes that may not be volume sellers but are important to us.

This exactly. These wheels are important to us and there's no one else that makes an affordable lightweight wheel that's 10" wide, and especially not an 11". So what if they're a month late, I don't know about everyone else but to me they're sure as hell worth the wait.

Edit: Holy **** they're gonna be here Saturday, can't wait!

Such contrast.

Just got a call from a fellow that received the "drop shipped" notification. He understood what that meant but wanted tracking. I told him tracking would be coming soon, just be patient. Wheels will be shipping very soon and he should have them soon. He wanted to know when exactly. I explained I could not answer that and I understood he was in a hurry. Also mentioned that every one that pre-ordered is in a hurry and wants to know exact arrival date. Just have to be patient. He got angry and hung up.

Now probably hates me. I'm a jerk and a-hole. Lousy customer service. Will never buy from again and will go out of his way to tell people 949 sucks... all while kicking proverbial *** on our fantastic 15x11 6UL wheels that no other wheel company even understands let alone cares enough to actually make.

My life

If it makes you feel any better, I'm getting $3500 worth of stuff delivered from you between this week and next lol. 15x10's, 15x11's and Xida's. RIP my wallet. At least the wheels have been paid for forever.

As always, we are eternally grateful for everyone's support and business. We are smart enough to make our living doing something more sensible and profitable like real estate or computer programming, but just dumb (and passionate) enough to stick with making cool car parts instead.

Enjoy!

I am the proud owner of some 11" wheels! I don't need no stinking tracking number. Just happy that you made this size! Thanks Emilio!

Our shipment of 15x10 and 15x11 arrive tomorrow and we'll be shipping pre-orders ASAP. Taking a set of 15x10s right away for my car, much excite on many levels!

I ordered assuming the time frame was going to slip but hoped to have them before mid march so I am happy to be getting them before the end of Feb.

Thanks for making this size.
