The ChampCar Garage FB page had a post today about lots of 6UL's breaking on people - just relaying information, no personal experience

 

I feel its more of an internet witch hunt. We have had one fail on us. It was a gen 2, which had known faults, it was also bent, which we knew, and we still chose to run it. 

 

I didn't gather a lynch mob to incite the internet with rage, we just slapped another one on and finished 6th. Posted my video in that thread of it happening.

We’ve used 15x7 kosei k1s, then 15x8 advanti storm s2. We’ll be trying out the 15x9 Koenig Dekagram next race. Only have had wheels brake during contact. 

We had a set of kosei wheels as well, they were nice.  We did have one that ended up with the stud holes elongating, but chalked that up to a faulty torque wrench and a hurried morning.

I researched Miata wheels extensively, and started having Focus hubs built with the 4x100 pattern due to the many choices available. Good-win-Racing and gomiata.com seem to have the best assortment, as well as our series sponsor, Tire Rack. All of the wheels mentioned above are pretty good choices, although I have no experience running them, but have talked to people who have.

The flow form wheels - Advanti S1 and S2's, Konig's, 949 6UL's and Jongbloed's - all seem to weigh about 10.5-12.5 lbs. depending on if they're 15x7, 8 or 9 wide. Not sure about the Kosei's weight or construction.

The TRM (Tire Rack brand) wheels are not flow formed, and are a bit heavier at around 15-16 lbs. 

Most all of these wheels are in the $109-$150 price range, with the 6UL's and Jongbloed's being a bit more expensive.
