15x9 & 15x8 6UL for E30

I saw this on another forum and figured I would share with you guys.

The 15x8 will be a +23, same inner clearance as the 15x9 in the video.

The 15x9 +12 6UL Exocet fitment is based on our 15x10 tool so it's concave. The 15x8 +23 6UL Exocet fitment is based on our 15x9 so it will have a deeper lip than our current 15x8 +36.
We think both of these Exocet fitments will be popular with the stanced Miata crowd.

It looks like these wheels will more than likely fit the e30 with a small (5mm or maybe even smaller) spacer up front. I know I can't be the only one who is ecstatic to finally have an option for lightweight, strong 15x9s that fit without the need for a massive spacer.

I plan to get a set to try out as soon as possible. I will post pics ASAP.

I asked about the wheels for the exocet last month and got a reply that they wouldn't be making more in a few months. Ended up picking up the 15x7 e30 spec ones instead of waiting. Just a heads up if you get the e30 ones you will want a 15 to 20mm spacer for the rear so it matches the front.

Yeah, it says Q4 '17 in the original post. Based on the history with 949 the timing tends to be a little "fluid" lol. Only so much you can anticipate when dealing with overseas manufacturing.

I'm not sure why you would want a spacer in the rear? As far as I know none of the spece30 guys are running rear spacers. I've been running square wheels without them for years. Actually, on my 7.5s I run a 3mm spacer up front for brake clearance. A little reverse stagger ain't gonna hurt anything.
