Local gas station using a 20 year old machine. Changed me the same as my 175/70 tires on my honda. Tire lube is meant to not destroy wheels. Plenty left on them but I assure you it rubbed off instantly.

Curious if these fit over the 11.75" TSE brakes. That'd determine if they're really an option to 6ULs if they're not in stock for a long time.

I was surprised to find that even the 15x7 size Advanti clears our Good-Win Racing 11 inch Big Brake kits.

I don't have a template for that 11.75 kit but if somebody can send it my way....then I can check it.

Necro bump

Wheels suck, rubbed a car at WRL @ TWS. Protruding spoke design caused the break, big curb could do the same thing.

Blaming the wheels for running into another car is....creative. Most track day guys don't do that. In our Spec Miata wheels the Team Dynamics brand redesigned their Pro 1 to make it the Pro 1.2/1.3 years ago and the difference was pulling the spokes inward because Spec Miata racers often do rub wheel to wheel....but most other classes don't do that (and many club track events send you home if you do).

If you plan to rub wheels regularly at speed you might want to consider 15x9 949 Racing Wheels, the spokes are a bit more inward...and shipment expected soon.

No, minor curb contacts typical when parking won't do that in our experience with these. Had a few customers with stretched fitments like 205/50 on 15x9 already rub curbs hard and give up some metal and paint shavings but so far only damage we have seen from those incidents is cosmetic,...not total wheel destruction like you did here.

I think you are downplaying the contact as it was more than just a rub. Here are the videos from both cars showing the incident that broke the passenger side rear wheel on the red 93 Miata:

That was a serious impact. I bet the control arms are bent, too. It's kind of difficult to blame the wheels when you are in an actual collision.

If you want the body to take any impacts and not the wheels and suspension, maybe drop back to 15x6.5's.

Or get some of these:

I drove my car off a cliff and it's smashed. What a piece of junk. Get it together, Mazda

I had not seen the video just the aftermath. This was a bigger hit then what I was led to believe. Still see the exposed spoke being a very bad idea.

These things just don't happen with 15x6.5's. Anything wider is a bad idea.

I've got two sets of these now and am really happy with them for track days. If I were racing in a contact series (note: WRL is "supposed" to be no contact -- but "stuff" happens), I'd want something more tank-like. Note that Spec Miata has a 13+ pound minimum weight (might even be 13.5, can't remember) for 15x7s! That's the kind of wheel you use for rubbing!

Is anyone else a little impressed that the failure didn't immediately crack the other spokes and that the car was still driving fine?

Yes, it looked like the impact broke the wheel lip inward rather than skinning off all of the spokes as I was expecting to see from the language used.

I don't think that hit would have destroyed a wheel that had recessed spokes. This is the same reason we quit running a model of Team Dynamics wheel in SM. Two wide in a race and when the wheel spokes connected, the torque on the car was absolutely brutal. This was nothing that hasn't happened before (numerous times) and with normal wheels was never an issue. Exposed/protruding spokes are just not wheel-to-wheel race friendly.

What's the deal with these guys running into each other with plenty of room on the track? They both look like the guy on the outside is turning into the guy that's ahead on the inside.

We have had a couple impacts over the years that have netted the same result with a pro race 1.2, TR Motorsports C1M, and bent 6UL. The 6UL was the hardest hit and came out the best, but with that impact, I would not be surprised that any wheel would have been messed up.

Also, that wheel was messed up about 2 hours into the race and still did another 7 hours just like that. Since it was on the passenger side, they didn't notice until after the race. I have no idea how it didn't lose pressure, but it didn't.

Wow. Talk about "the rest of the story." That's incredible.

Keep in mind the flow-forming of the rim. I would expect that to make the rim harder but perhaps more brittle. A pure cast wheel might have been more likely to bend. Dunno.

I suggest axial 8 holes with a bead locker.
