15x8 949Racing 6UL wheel (NA/NB fitment)
- Product Review (submitted on November 21, 2017):
I replaced factory 7-spokes on my NA8 with these in mid-summer, wearing 205/50 Direzza ZII Star Specs, using 949 hub-centering rings, and I can’t imagine being more satisfied. The ride is dramatically better, especially over rough roads, and while your experience may vary based on tire, my speedometer is actually MORE accurate than in factory spec, especially as speed increases. They balanced easily, clean up from rough drives easily, and even with two 230 lb guys in the car, in this size, fitment is no sweat at all. I’ve experience no rubbing whatsoever, even with full steering input at near-full suspension compression.
A sidenote - if you’re considering the bronze/gold finish, just take the plunge. I was on the fence based on pictures, but pictures don’t do the finish justice. I’ve got them on a white car and they look fantastic - much less washed out and dull than I’ve seen them look in photos (though brake dust could be a factor there).
So far durability seems solid as well. After a fair amount of time on the Blue Ridge Parkway, which inevitably involves some unavoidable crater-size pothole hits, I’ve had no issues.
