    after



    Not bad for $180 dollar wheels. I havent redrilled the fronts yet, I'm going to make plugs for the extra holes on the lathe at work

    Damn, I was hoping those would stick out a little further in that size and offset, but they should fit really nice on a stock PType.

    Why do people envy rotas, hmmm I don't know, because they look good, are cheap, well made, extremly light (15x7 is 14lbs) and are available in KICK ASS sizes. Name one other wheel besides Centerlines (which are all very american styled and heavy) where you can get a complete set of 17s as wide as 9.5 for under a grand.

    btw those american slot mags posted above are also knock offs, and very heavy.

    I find entertainment in the fact .... Somone wants to put down a style of wheel, then, shows pictures of wheels he had to freaking redrill to make fit ..... And, IMO really belong on old American Muscle anyway. To each there own, but, close to an example of .... Pot calling Kettle black ....

    You're missing the small fact that the majority of us find that "look" stupid.

    ...can you do it? Sure.

    ...am I going to trade in my 17x9's any time for it? Uh... no.

    not sure why people are bashing the redrilling of wheels, I think it's cool... I would love to pick these up and get them redrilled for my car

    unfortunately we were given a bolt pattern that not many wheel manufacturers are willing to support as much anymore.

    ...as for Rota wheels.

    I want to see proof that they are not made well and not up to hard driving. Yes we've seen pics, but under what circumstance were they damaged? A picture of a damaged wheel means nothing to me. I've seen high end factory and after market forged wheels at the wreckers smashed to pieces.

    Seen those wheels and would have been all over them if they were 16". Forget re-drilling, 5 bolt conversion is a nicer option.
