I'm planning on the Tungsten 6ULs (17x8) because of the super light weight (~14.7lbs). I want to mount these with the new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S because it is SO well rated! The size will have to be 245/40/17..closest height match (24.7") to stock (24.3") available. As a bonus, this size only weighs 22lbs (stock 205/45/17 Bridgestone S001 is 19lbs)...for a combined weight of about 36.7lbs each corner mounted! I have a Chicane Racing fender roll tool to make some extra room.
My wife's 2017 Club ST/6M is Meteor Grey like this car and I DO like the color match with this Ampliform rim, but it weighs almost 3lbs more than the 6ULs (at 17.75lbs) in a 17x8.
Do you know the weight of a stock MX-5 Club/GT rim?
I'd consider this "heavier" rim if the stock rim was heavy already.
My new tire will be 3lbs heavier than stock
, so I don't want the rim to be heavier too!! That 6UL should be lighter than stock, or at least same??
××Side note, I will be going with your GWR 12.88" BB6p front and 2piece rear rotor (with 4p caliper or painted stock caliper) to save as much unsprung weight as possible!! (My wife wants her Club to have RED brakes like my Challenger SRTs huge..RED 6p/14.5" front & 4p/14.0" rear) I'm a NUT for unsprung weight, so will probably HAVE to get the 6ULs, but I like the color match of this rim better than the Tungsten (and my wife likes the style match to my SRT rim pattern!
Thanks for the stock weight (if you know it) and any help OR comments!!
