No radiusing of fenders, usable camber.

In a word, no. It's the same clearance as what you would need if you took a 9" 6UL and put 25mm worth of spacer behind it. You need flares or overfenders.

I got some more seat time Monday and wanted to share some observations.

The 10" 6UL's are the perfect rim for the 245 Hoosier slick. When I used a 9" rim with the 245's the steering was more vague and the break away was more abrupt. With the 10's the steering is very precise and break away is very predictable. It made the car easier to drive at the limit.

If you plan to run a 245 slick or 245 R6/A6 find a way to fit a 10" wheel. It will be well worth the effort.

Same exact thing I felt between running 245 DOT hoosiers and 275 DOT hoosiers. The 245's on 10's were like oh my god these things feel good. going back to 275's on 10's and dispite whatever the peak grip level may be the cornering feels vague, sloppy, and brake away is way less predictable and managable at the limit.

This observation has me getting 11's to run the 275's on.

That will be a great combo. I bet a 275 A6 would survive a 20 min track session with magical grip!

I am at the limit with 10's under the current body work.

Should be a fun year with the current 245 offerings and the upcoming 245 RC1.

Any ETA on a shipment of x 10's? I'm looking for a set of blacks.

Not until next year, Q2/15 probably. It will be about a pound lighter (flow formed) and cost a bit less than the current wheel.

Not even close.

From the first post: These are a DIY, hacking fender open for flares, race slick only fitment.

They barely fit with 30mm fenders and quarter panels.

Couldn't find it anywhere on this thread. Has anyone seen or done 275s on the 15x10 with stock fenders on a NB? I'd really like to avoid cutting my fenders for flares, but I'd really like to run the 15x10s.
