Default 15x7 Spec Miata 6UL

First production batch of our 15x7 +24 Spec Miata 6UL just arrived. First wheel we pulled out of a box and threw on a scale, 13.042 lbs. Money! We spent a little extra on these to get be able to hold a very tiny weight tolerance, tighter than is typical with cast wheels. We also offer the same wheel in a Spec E30 offset and hub center.

Are the spokes on gen 4 wheels thicker than previous versions?

Deeper, not wider. Different draft angle. Different heat treating process, different alloy, different factory. Other than that, they are the same

Will these work well with the new 245 VR-1s?

We recommend 15x6 for that tire.

There is no max offset, only a max trackwidth which we make with a little room to spare.

I thought they looked slightly different but it's kinda hard to tell from a picture.
