So you're not accepting pre-orders directly on your website? I want to order direct.

Ok, I read the post on the S2ki site. So pretty much hosed as far as club orange discounts on these wheels since you will likely not carry them at all.
<br />
<br />Bummer.

From the S2ki thread:<br />

<br /><br />I am quite disappointed in this new system. It does make sense, but will there be any provision for club orange members?

In order for us to grow, we will phase out consumer direct wheel sales, just like every other wheel company. This means most variants will no longer be offered through our website. Club Orange still applies to everything available on our website.

<br />Sure, I get it. Still a disappointment. Since the stuff on your website that's reseller stuff isn't particularly price competitive. I guess if I needed another set of Xidas?
<br />
<br />I'll probably still buy them because dammit, you've made a beautiful and light weight wheel. But a little carping is to be expected.

Our +48 will probably be real close.

<p>Wooooo now it looks like S2k fitments can be pre-ordered through the 949 site. Sent an email to JR on Thursday about fitment questions, haven't heard back. Will probably bug you tomorrow Emilio via email if I haven't heard back.</p><p>Ready to pre-order, just need to decide which size I'm getting.</p><p>I'll stop crapping up the ND thread now </p>

Mind telling us what won't fit on the NA/NB? I'm just curious where it'll rub, not looking for specific offset or anything. My not Miata Miata (light weight exocet, fits x8 6uls no spacer) would look nice with 17x9's.

The ND wheel is much higher offset so it's going to rub on the inside. Please don't be offended by this but we are not going to coach people on how to make our ND specific wheel fit the early cars. Your welcome to buy the wheels and sort it out yourself but we can't give you enough information for you to know exactly what you're going to need to do ahead of time. You would have to just roll the dice and see if you can make it work. One way or the other I'm sure there can be some very thick spacers involved. What size would probably depend on how you have your car setup. Again, we're not going to build a database for what spacers are needed for what camber, what coilover etc.
