They weigh 16lbs in the 6.5" format, otherwise I totally would. I think some RS's come in a bit lighter format but I'm not a balller unfortunately.

To bump this. Anybody using 15x9 +24 Compomotive ML1590. I was thinking about purchasing a set. I was wanting an offset closer to 35 but they only poke out 12mm further than 6uls.

Just looked those up, nice looking wheels but at $300 each and weighing in around 20 lbs I don't think you're going to find anyone on here running them.

I like how the spokes are different thicknesses so some spokes hit the caliper, other spokes on the same wheel don't. Would not trust my life with.

Edit: to their credit, I should mention TR took it back and paid the return shipping, even though they said it wasn't defective, or any worse than any other wheel they sell under the TR Motorsports name.
Finally, I'm not the only one who found this.

eh, my car has the c3m's, and I like them, but if I were the one buying wheels I would have gone with 6ULs.

All the c3m on my are bent from hitting curbing on low speed corners at the track. They still balance up after a ton of weights but a set of 6ul will be needed at some point.

Didnt seem them mentioned but there's also spinwerks. If you get centers made by spinwerks they're an ounce or two lighter than the 949s, and only cost like $100 bucks more per set. And they're made to order so you can get whatever offset you want and they'll be hub centric. They also have steel inserts for the lug nut taper to prevent galling of the wheel. If you dont get centers made by spinwerks they can be but to a pound heavier though so you must be specific with your order and willing to wait.

Msr wheels have two newer 15x9s they look nice and are better quality than most of the 15x9 knock off styke wheels.
