Default 6UL 15x7-7.5-8-9 comparison pics

Some of you may be deciding between the 6UL variants so I though I'd post these images to show the differences. Exact same car. Just jacked it up and swapped wheels. All inflated to 30psi.

Oh and yes, the 15x7 & 15x7.5 are finally in production. Due here in November.

Full resolution versions:

Obviously 9's are only for fertile alpha-males.

All 9" 6ULs are +36.

The difference between boys and men is half an inch of rim lip.

It sucks that i can't find an all season or even a street tire that has more than a 100aa for the 15x9's. The only thing i see is summer or track. oh well.... i gues i'll have to go with the 15x8's. That blows.

The Hankook RS3 is a 140 treadwear. Though, I wouldn't want to drive that compound in cold temperatures.

6ul? You can do 15x10 or 11 if they had that with a nice roll N pull. BUT if its a low offset then try 15x9. 6ul are high offsets.
