The 15x8 Pro Race 1.2 wheels are not heavy wheels, nor are they ultra lightweight wheels. The 6UL is (now) a flow formed wheel (the latest version), which should be lighter, and not have failures like previous versions. Waiting to see how the new version holds up. I am a bit reserved with the new flow formed/cast wheel combinations.

Yep, the TDMs are excellent (strong) wheels and I plan to run them in autocross competition. I wasn't deriding them at all, but I haven't seen any detailed comparison discussion of their specs other than PSD and offsets. I also have a set of the first gen 6ULs on my supercharged Miata with no problems either.

Understood. I feel the necessity to address weight as people can get the wrong impression.

The Pro Race 1's had a spotty record years ago too at one point, and like your 1st gen 6UL's, some of those are still in use as well.

A supercharged Miata sounds like a blast!

I have the 4x100 conversion hardware, but I'm not going to switch over unless it I find that it is really imperative for winning autocross events.

Switching to a 4X100 is going to bump you from HS into a class that no matter how light your wheel is you are very unlikely to win.

Looking for the rally look what do you think 15 or 16 white?
Competition rally wheels are typically 15". That being said, street wise, a multispoke white wheel will certainly give off the rally feel/look.

Yeah, I'm already headed to CSP/STX so I'm staying with the 4x108 15x8 TDM wheels for now and may go with some 9s later. I've sold off some toys (the '03 SC Miata and '07 MazdaSpeed6 are gone) and will play harder with the FiST over the next few years. I've competed in SCCA ProSolo and Solo CSP, FSP, & STS for many years ('86-'02) in the past so...
