I'm sure RSR Motorsports would be appreciative of that, THEY know how to kill a 6UL - when buying their take-offs in the spring, they said they go through them like candy with such a stiff sprung car, like 900# rears or something crazy like that...

In for new **** when they arrive.

What inside info do you have on these 245's coming out next year? Will the NT01 be available in that size? Will it be replaced by a better tire?

Nothing to share at this time.

The inner lip of my 9's make contact at full-lock w/o spacers. Since the offset on the 10's gives 2mm less inner clearance than the 9's, I assume this will have the same full-lock clearance issue and need small 3-5mm spacers to correct? Or has this issue been taken care of for Gen 3 wheels?

It's not a flaw. There just isn't enough room for a 9" wheel in a car designed for a 5.5" wheel. Expect some DIY fitting issues with 10's as well. They are nothing near PnP.

I agree it's not a flaw. Wasn't saying it is. Just wanting to know how it is on the backside to account for that extra space on the front.

You won't want the 10's, you obviously can't handle it.

Thanks for making the decision for me. I'll stick with my 9's then. My bank account thanks you.

If you're already crying like a bitch about the 9's, you don't want a 10".

My 9" fits perfect.

I don't know why you have an issue with me asking a legit question, but whatever.

I think my 9s have rubbed maybe two or three times. Just stop turning to full lock. Doesn’t take long to learn where the contact point is.

Yea, I was just wondering if anything changed on the 10's. Emilio answered.

First production sample. 13.7 lbs. We did a pilot run of a handful of wheels that will be at Solo II Nationals in Lincoln, NE. To expedite getting this wheel here, we didn't machine the lip, which the production wheels will have.

^ They look great - will be interested to see if any tire manufacturers follow suit and offer more choices to take full advantage of the wheel width. I've got three pairs of 6ULs - tempted now to order a fourth.

If they left Taiwan at the same time, what is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow such that both it and my 15x10s arrive together?

Pic I swiped from Scott''s facebook page, posted from nationals this week. These are 4 of the 12 pre-production samples I had flown in from Taiwan for a few drivers just in time for nationals. We didn't have time to get the lips machined, thus the solid painted silver.

Beautifully turned out car. Good luck to you guys!
