Probably not worth his time, honestly.

The people would be in the market for 6ULs aren't going to be buying those anyway. I mean, is Rays going after Konig for my "RAVS ENGINEERING" CE27 knock-offs?

Yes, I think Rays is going after Konig for those copies. They're usually only on the market for a little bit. They copy, sell a few hundred sets, get in trouble, and go off the market, but some how get away with it. And unfortunately it works, I've got a set of "Enkeis", which I specifically bought because they were cheaper than the 15x8 6uls. So even other company's copies are hurting his business in a small way, you better believe he should be going after an identical copy.

That doesn't much look like a 6ul to me. The contours are all wrong. Bad copy is bad.

That's what I thought too. It's like they made their own bad copy from scratch and then intentionally added the 949 branding.

There's only one valve stem per wheel on the copy too. My old man eyes might be failing me but I couldn't tell for sure it said 949racing or just something similar.

It definitely says 949racing and 6UL on it. It looks pretty identical to me. The color combo creates a bit of a weird look but I bet it is the exact same cast. This happen all the time in China.

My old man eyes work as well as a 28 year olds, and they says exactly 949racing. For a second I thought they changed something like RAVS vs. RAYS, but I don't think they do. Straight 949racing.

Yeah, and on the other side it clearly says "6UL".

The contours of the face look wrong. My 6uls don't have the same depth holes for the lug nuts as the ones pictured among other things. They are different.

Am I reading this poorly?
15 8J in the text and 15x7J in the casting (now I have to check what my ones say in the casting )?
+30 ET by machining the backside less (so "oh, no it's not identical").

I'm sure you are right. And as pointed out earlier there is only 1 valve stem hole, so they are definitely different.

I find it HILARIOUS that someone would go through the effort to make this wheel using a different casting, and then add 949racing and 6ul to it.

I find it sad. Just sad.
And I sincerely hope none of the retards that buy these post pictures on here, cause I'm sure they'll get eaten alive.

Emilio updated 949's facebook with an interesting post, apparently they're not copyrighted in Japan and other Asian countries. Oh, and 15.5 pounds.
