He lists the load rating for the 15x9s at 500kg per wheel.

Indeed.

I am a poor track bum and can not be a beta tester of these wheels but i will certainly be keeping an eye out for them at the track and here on the forums.

Will these have the correct hub centers?

How has no one asked the most obvious, and arguably pressing, question yet?

How do you pronounce "Jongbloed?" What origin is that name? Is it Dutch? Was the company founded by a famous footballer?

my friend said he thinks it is Young blood and I thought that sounded way better than what I was saying.

anyway these guys make lots of wheels, common at porsche club, scca and other events so I dont think you have anything to worry about in terms of "beta testing'.

Im seriously thinking about ordering 5 or 6.

"Youngblood" is how the phone was answered.

I'm guessing they're not going to have a good picture of a real miata fitment 15x9 for us to see until the group buy is a go and they actually start making them huh?

Just wondering, since the rendering doesn't really show how it will look on the car, and the 15x7 spec fitment size is nowhere near as sexy looking as I'm imagining the x9 will be

Let me see what I can do. I'm not a photoshop master, but I know a few who might be able to help.

Do you have any good pics of your car on 15s? Maybe with 15x9s? If so, you can email them to me at z31maniac at gmail dot com

I think you're right that it would be nice to see what these will look like.

Bump for some good pics of someone's car on 15x8/9 so I can try to get some photoshop work done.

Stop being lazy and go google it yourself.

Or do you prefer everyone to spoon feed you and do your work for you?

Or it's that I don't want to use someone's picture, without their consent, and potentially cause a problem.

Since 18psi had indicated he would like to see what they looked like on a Miata, I was hoping he had a few pictures he wouldn't mind sharing.

Feel free to use any of my pictures dude, I don't mind. I'd post some but I'm at work and PB is blocked.

I, too, am super concerned with copyright infringement. Especially considering that I would have had better odds at winning last night's Powerball than you actually owning a copy of Photoshop.
