Good idea! Might want to add the spacer sizes required for the 6ul's as well and for any others that need it.

Yeah, I thought about that, but really that comes down to the person and what they are looking for. Plus, the only one I really know is the 6uls. I am not sure on the rest. :)

Nice! May want to include the C1 is available in 15x7 and 15x8.

Also Tire Rack has the Kazera k4r which is another good lightweight choice too.
