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.
Do you have a rig/jig or whatever you call the thing so you can make manis/dps etc without a car? I heard about it the other day- basically a mock up of the space you have to work with? If you had one you could make manis in the summer!!!!

I can make mani's in the summer no problem, car not needed after placement on the first mani is verified. Car is needed to build downpipes. I attempted to make a downpipe jig once and it sorta works but not as nice as I'd want it to be, especially once you start adding EWG dumps. I don't know how BEGI or ARTech do it.

Sooooo someone with GRM and a cellphone please click a pic and post here!

Wait, Rev8 seriously doesn't come with a 4x100 15x8 or 15x9?

Boner killer :(

Faeflora's got a sawzall so just get the DP within a half foot and he'll mod the rest and get it to fit!

I'd read that ad as it comes in 15x7, 8 & 9, and all of the widths are available in all those bolt circles. That's also what his site implies. Emilio knows betta. Right? Then again I did preorder 17x9 black 6ulr's in 5x100 and got grey ones cause that's all he made in 5x100 and wasn't told until a few weeks before shipment. But thanks for the scan newold!

It's not an ugly wheel but not as pretty as the 6ul. I personally don't dig machined lips at the moment. And I like the "dish" to the 15x9 6ul, I hope the 9" wide Rev8 has a similar dish.

Definitely a nice wheel for the price!

^^^^
This.

I think you guys are reading that as rows like a spreadsheet. I believe that the implication is as Tim said. At the very least it likely implies all those sizes and all those bolt circles in various combos. I think the biggest reason these were created were to compete with the TR wheel for the Miata.
Not as attractive as I'd hoped, but what do you want at that price point? Function over form.

Correct. Further details will be available when the wheel is released.

I read it the wrong way too.. call me stupid but I imagine a lot of people will. I've attached what is (IMHO) a better version.

^^^^ I did....and I SOOOOOO hope that's true....I have been looking for a 15x10 wheel. I already have the 15x9's but with the 275's I REALLY need the 10's.

I only run the 275's for AutoX So it's not as bad as a grand a month.

This was his reason for not making them previously I believe, not enough interest. 9's are fine for 225s, and not many wanted to spend the money on 275s. I'm wondering what changed, either in manufacturing cost or demand.

That or he just needed to make some for himself, and decided to spread a little love.

I think a lot more people would go for 275's if it didnt cost another $2000 for nice resonably light wheels that fit them as well.
