Splash it on Vortex and display the images (key). If we get enough retail or one dealer interested, it's easy to do a run of 5x112 in whatever offset works. Be sure to include a link to our website and send me the forum link if you do.

Title like: "Hey new wheels?" might not be as effective as something like "949 Racing 17" 6UL? Not being a sponsor there, I can't post it.

Hum same bolt patter for the NC as my Mazda 3 DD. I doubt a 9 would fit with factory height, spring size, and camber.

Had several customers with our old 6ULR +48 on MS3's. Unknown coilover /camber though.

17x9 6ULRs fit easily on MS3 and MS6, stock suspension or lowered. How they fit depends on tire width though. Running 235's or wider tires requires a mild fender roll in the rear, otherwise the rear tires will rub, especially if you have passengers in the back.

I bought one of my sets from an MS3 owner, he was running 235/45/17 tire with 8mm spacers in front and 5mm spacers in rear. I never checked if the wheels fit with no spacers on my MS6, just use what he had. I am running 245/45/17 and 255/40/17, both front and rear fenders rolled, about 5/8" lower than stock, -3 camber in rear, -2.3 camber in front.

@Pitlab77; I see you are in Houston, if you really really want to check the fit, you are more than welcome to swing by, I am in Bryan.

Any issues if I do this to the ST forum? We need a set of good wheels. Also we have silly bolt patterns.

Not at all. The more info you provide the better. Link to our website, full display images, etc.

Yeah, 5x108 has awful wheel selection.
You'll need to introduce 6ULs in 5x108 when the Focus RS hits the market

Ford 108mm has been on the list for about 8 years.The challenge has been setting up the supply chain. It's taken that long but now we have all the pieces in place to start adding new applications at a far more rapid pace than ever before.

Send me links to your posts on other forums guys.

Wobble bolts, as long as you have proper hub centric rings I see nothing wrong with them for a street car. I run 5x112 on my 5x110 saab without issue. Heck BBS sells wobble bolts, that made me a believer in their safety.

Interesting, I need a set of wheels for the BRZ.

Main question: Will these remain like the current 15" selections where they are almost never in stock?

Default photshops from Jackson Racing

The guys at Jackson Racing are very keen to get the 17" 6UL in stock for their many FRS/BRZ customers. So they took the 15" images, scaled them up and 'chopped away. Beauty.

The Tungsten or Charcoal finish will look amazing on my black BRZ. Can't wait for these to be released!

Could you do a run of 15X9 with something like 4x114 or 5x114 ? I do have some friend looking for some 15x9 for track purpose and there's not a lot of choice (rota... oups cracked)

If so, how many sets it would take ?

It would require an entirely new tool. Figure $225 each if we took non refundable, pre-paid orders for 200 wheels.

I believe that's the first spot of pricing we've yet seen for these.

Hope the size that fits S2k's will be the same price or cheaper...

I know you posted on mnet about tooling for the ND. Any chance of a 17x7 so that people could go autocrossing?

That is a ball park price for a very small run (200) of 15x9 5 lug wheels that we have no plan to produce. Our current production 15x9, 4x100 retails for $175. I wouldn't use either of those numbers to estimate prices for 17" 6UL's produced in greater volume.
