Hard to buy a set of wheels knowing they won't fit your brake setup, even if other 15s do fit.

Here is the last project I just finished. 7lb fully adjustable sheet spindles and control arms for an frs. I built this setup to fit in the 17" rpf1.

I am not aware of this, but it makes sense.

Can anyone confirm these will fit over front Wilwood BBK and rear Sport brakes?

9 and 10 yes. Unsure if 8s have been tested. Trackspeed has the info on their site.

I just got my 10s last week. I will not be buying these again. Of course, i say this now, but it'll really come down to what is in stock next time. I would have bought 6ULs, but with only THREE (how useless) being in stock at the time, had to find another option.

Thanks for the quick response homie.

I'm on that same boat right now, and trying to convince myself not to go this route. 6-8 Week waiting time for 10s at 949..

I cant find that info at trackspeed, do you have a link? id like to know how much these guys weigh.

I weighed my set at 15.2lbs using my super accurate bathroom scale.

Scroll down for fitment confirmations.

Is it just the availability / slow supply chain pushing you not to buy the Jongbloeds again or something else?

I have the 9's in bronze and was considering getting 10s as well. I want to like 6ULs as everything else about them is great, but the design's just never done anything for me.

Availability and that this set came in 3-4 weeks later than originally expected, which set into motion a pretty ugly chain of events, culminating in missing a track day/forfeiting reg fees. I'm not actually MAD about it, because there's really nobody to be mad AT, but it still sucks real bad.

But i also don't want to deal with it again. I'm not sure what the correct answer is, but i do know that the 6ULs are lighter and cost pretty much the same. And if you can physically order them, chances are you'll have them within a week, vs the LongerDongers which came about 12 weeks after i spent my money.

Another +1 for street wheels. Storms or 6uls for the track

Even blind people think 13.5lb wheels look better than 15.2lb wheels.

I'd agree. My *** isn't calibrated enough to notice the 1.7lb/corner difference though, and literally every time i've tried to buy the 13.5lb eye-wateringly-gorgeous wheels, they haven't been available. Not that this go around with the butterface 15.2lb wheels (built for childbearing!) was much better, so that's that.

Guess i go with some US made 3 pieces from here.


Anyways, here's some pictures.

This forum's formatting is infuriating. Posting anything like i do on every other forum at any point in history results in duplicates of every image. You probably caught me mid-edit.
