This.


They're out of stock 80% or more of the year. That's a lot of time to just go ahead and make the decision to "settle" for something else.

Default Future 6UL availability

Trust me guys, no one feels that pain of no inventory more acutely than me. I have simply not found the right manufacturing partner until now. I held out starting up with two other factories that made offers Q2 2013, to get to a particular partner that can provide what we need, when we need it for Q3/14. Once we get the new machine up to speed, we should finally be able to release the new fitments and maintain continuous production. That has always been my intention. From starting in my garage selling used OEM wheels in 2005 to now, much has changed! No promises but, I feel we can finally meet continuous and spot demand once we're in production with a given tool.

It has been a profound experience to have so many enthusiasts, over so many marques, driving styles, demographics, continents connect with our brand and what we represent that they are willing to wait for the shiny car toys we offer.

I've bought 6 sets of 6 UL's between 8's, 9's, and 10's and always it was a timing issue between fitting it in my budget and actually waiting for them to be in stock.

Money leaves my wallet a lot faster however if I can buy stuff as soon as I have money burning a hole in my pocket and not have to wait for it to be in stock to feel th gratification of spending it.

With the huge new flares on my track car, I would like some of these as well. I do remember in an old thread from a couple of years ago, Emilio mentioned having a discussion with a Hoosier tire engineer about 15x11s for the 275 A6/R6 and being told by Hoosier it would not make any performance difference over a 15x10. He was considering release of a 15x11 IIRC.

Then again the clubroadster madtyteyo crew might like them for stretching the crap out of a 225. But then again, they will want stupid offsets.

It would be interesting to get some cheap Arrow or Barnett steelies and perform a stopwatch comparison between a 15x11 and a 15x10.

(bring this back a bit)
a while ago there was discussion and mention of new wheels in similar fitment, different look to the 6UL (ie the REV8). Are those thoughts dead now with all the cheaper competition??

No. Just a very low priority now.
