PART NUMBER: 61-2812
The COUNTERGRAM is a new 9-spoke design built with flow-forming technology. Available here in Hyper Chrome center w/ mirror machined lip. Konig integrated feedback from their motorsport teams, racers and drivers into the new Countergram. The face was pushed out to allow for as much brake caliper protrusion as well as overall brake diameter near the drop center. This provides excellent caliper clearance for aftermarket big brake kits, and big 550kg load rating for strength.
*Weight ~13.45 pounds.
1990-2005 Miata Brake Clearance Notes:
- Fits all factory brakes
- Fits StopTech 11" BBK
- Fits Goodwin Racing V5 11.75" BBK
- Fits Wilwood 11" BBK
Brian's APPLICATION NOTES: Flow formed and very nicely finished. ONE CAUTION, it seems Konig is trying to play more like Enkei and included cast aluminum fancy center caps instead of industry standard cheap snap-on plastic caps. The result looks high end compared to plastic caps on wheels of similar cost but BE CAREFUL to do little more than finger tight with the very tiny allen head screws that attach the caps, use a dab of loctite, do NOT apply significant torque to the screws or they will strip out immediately!
WHAT IS FLOW FORMING?
Flow Forming Technology involves the application of pressure to the inner barrel of the wheel, while spinning & after it has been casted. This process shares similarities to that found in the forging process in which the aluminum molecules are compressed resulting in a lighter & stronger wheel with greater shock resistance & elongation properties.

Tire Size breakdown:
-195/50 and 205/50: not recommended
-225/45: Tires fit NB fenders with no mods needed given 1.5 or better negative camber, fits NA with slightly rolled fenders and that negative camber
- 225/50: require rolling and pulling fenders, removing liners on NA, NB only requires slight roll.
-235/50 Toyo R888: requires rolling and pulling on NA, roll only on NB, will rub top of tire at full compression.
-275/35 require rolling and pulling, removing liners on NA, flat roll on NB. 20-30mm spacer recommended to fill aftermarket flares.
12mm bolt holes are perfect for centering wheel on Miata, but some MINI customers would need to change to 12mm studs. Stock lugs too short and fat, see our many lug upgrades.
Will NOT clear stock suspension, need coilovers with 2.5 inch diameter springs or narrower and expect may still rub at full lock (which is not a real issue since full lock is only possible at parking lot speeds), 3mm spacers can be added if you are running so much camber that you rub inside control arms, etc.
