Is this the SSSM lite car?

I'm liquidating my S2000 as we speak. SSSM lite, here I come.

Nice... very nice to see someone selling a sorted out set of super wide wheels. Officially on my wish list, just after the LSD and the TVS Weights? Also, it would be really nice to know more specifically what fender modifications are needed for the 15x10s and 17x10s. Does one have to trim all the way around, or just provide some more clearance on the front and back for turning? Do they have an A6 that fits the 17x10 (under 275?) Also, on the smaller version (15x8(8.5) and 17x9), is there a recommended A6 setup?

The 15x8 and 17x9 are just at 15 lbs each. Fender mods depend on how low the car goes. Typically it is all top of the fenderwells. They make a 255 that would fit the 17x10, but if you're going to go through the trouble, the 275 is the tires to have. Helps with gearing too. For the smaller version the 225/45R15 with either the 245 or 255/40R17 is the way to go. We're about 6 weeks out on delivery so if you want some for the good weather, now is the time to order!

The taller and wider 17x9 is the same weight as the shorter/thinner 15x8?

Interested in the sizes of A7s to use with these wheels.

Placed down a deposit as well. Been waiting for these since I saw 949s FB post about these wheels some time last year.
