Default 15X10 wheel options discuss

Ok Iím finding the 15X9ís just arenít wide enough for the 275/35/15 Hoosiers to work to potential and I am looking for options for wider wheels. They all seem expensive. I think I need pretty darn close to an +20 offset to work. A 15X10.5 might also fit but it will be very tight in the front though I think. The other issue is brake clearance, Iím running brakes meant for the track not just autocross, It is an 11.75Ē Dynapro MiniCooper setup so it wonít work with just any old 15Ē wheel. I think 15 lbs is my upper limit of acceptable weight so that pretty much rules out steel wheels.

15X10 options I have searched out so far

Work Equip 01: I really like the looks of these. Not sure of brake clearance. A-disc +22 maybe a good fit.

Work Equip 03: basically the same as the 01 with a different looking center. I like the 01 better.

Bogart: Light weight US made appear to be good quality. Definitely a top contender.

Kiezer: Rumors are they are super light but have flex and durability issues.

Kodiak: really nice looking. $530 a wheel is steep.

Panasport C8-15: I think Panasport can custom make what I want.

Spin Werks Series 82: $249.20 ea. most likely the cheapest option, 15.5 lbs is probably a bit heavier than the some others.

Spin Werks Series 85: 14.7 lbs and $401.49 slightly lighter and a lot more money.

Id like to find more complete data on weights costs and brake fit for some of these.

Spin Werks was what I was looking at as a top contender personally.

No JDM overseas lag to deal with for replacements. Fitment though... no clue.

Yah, but if for some reason you break one... you have to wait for a replacement. Thats why I'd pick a US based company.

Good point.

I have actually destroyed 2 949 15X9 wheels. A bolt fliped up off the track wedged between the caliper and the rim on one and nearly sawed it in two befor I got off the track and I bent another one somehow.

Kodiak is local to me. They are about 60 miles away. Painfully expensive though.

See if you can get some one else to go in on a miltiset deal. You will save about 42 per wheel.

Have a great day,
Jared

I am finding reports that the Spinwerks are significantly lighter than advertised. they changed the design and didnt update the listing or something.

A 15X10 wheel that weighs 12.8 lbs if it is true for under $250 is going to be tough to beat.

The Kodiaks might be cheaper than advertised on the web site as well.

Looks to me like bang for buck the Spinwerks are going to win hands down.

It sort of makes sense to me they would be light. Similar spun outer rim and the stamped aluminum center doesnít seem like it could be that heavy. Welding the center to the rim also seems like it would be lighter than a bolted connection possibly stronger as well due to having a complete circle for load transfer instead of discrete spots where the bolts are. Bogart increases the strength on some of there wheels as well by welding as well aparently. And lots of Keizer people seem to have cracking going on at the bolted connection in the hoops.

Definitely in to see how this develops as I've been thinking about the same thing myself... Bogart has been my first option for awhile though.

Argh, this topic just makes me upset at spending money .

<-- wants 15x10 spinwerks and 275 hoosiers all around.... ~2k ARGH.

Is there any 245/40/15 or so tire on the market yet? I've seen hints... wishes.... nothing more though. (Avon CR500, some Yoko overseas... )

Saw a thread awhile back on another forum where a guy was running Keizers on his Miata. Not sure how it turned out though

Keizer considers their wheels as a wear item. That's why they're freaking light and break when used too long

Well aware of this... I definitely wouldn't run them on the street but how is longevity really on a road course? Anyone know from experience?

I have known autocrossers that crack them in a season. constantly fixing leaks.
