Keep an eye on the homepage of our website. Anything we're willing to share will be posted there. Until they are finalized and in production, there will be no specifics published.

Really hard to copy something if you don't actually know what it is

So excited about these. Back in like spring 2010 when the concept of these was first uttered and they had a different name I think the projected date for them was Summer 2010, and so I put off my plans to buy dedicated/affordable track wheels for when these hit the market. It's certainly taking longer, but I understand how busy one person can get running a business, so I'm being patient. I've seen a few hot sets of cheap track wheels in various classifieds come and go but I'm still determined to give my money to 949, as long as these come about before 2012

To be clear, I'm not asking anyone to wait nor actively taking orders. I only responded to this thread to quell the inevitable bickering and rampant speculation that happened when we first announce a low cost wheel project about a year ago. As I got into development, it became clear that my original target was too low. Thus, the development period has stretched out to 18 months.

I see it says that you will have them in a 15x9, will they still be under $100. If so thats a sweet deal!

So, we should expect to see them in around ~6 months?

That very ad is what spawned my original post. Is that really what they'll look like?

I've had multiple attempts at subscriptions throughout my years. I tend to get 2 or 3 issues then the rest stop showing up. GRM wasn't much help as at the time the subscriptions were thru NASA membership I think. Ehh whatever. I would like the magazine however.

And getting manifolds before the summer...I'm at Jesel today and looks like I might be here for the next few fridays too...not good for manifold production but very good for my bank account.
