Perfect auto-x wheel

The perfect auto-x wheel would be:
light, affordable, 15" but clears SVT brakes, wide sizing, right offset, right bolt pattern.

May i present to you my latest wheels,
949Racing, 6UL: 15x10", 14 lbs, $210 each, clears SVT brakes

yes, this is a 4x100 wheel, but thats where neat part happens.

a stock 6UL has 6.3" backspacing which is a touch too much, so it lends itself perfectly to a 15mm spacer changing the bolt pattern from 4x108 to 4x100. which i got on ebay HERE for $70

i should also mention that the 15x9 works too, thats what i borrowed to test fit before i bought these. However i think with the 15x8 wheel, it doest have the high backspacing, so with the spacer it would stick out almost as much as the 15x9

so, happy autocrossing!

on to the pics and the proof

my SVT used for test fitting
