Re: what size rims to choose?

friends dont let friends buy rotas. but if i had to choose i would say get the slips bc they are lighter in a 16 in the full polish color. the 17 slips just look too big for that design.

you can get the grill from ebay, junkyard, partouts, craigslist, or a honda dealer.

Re: what size rims to choose?

oh here we go again.

rota's are cast, not forged like the high dollar volk's and such. and therefore not as strong. some say that is reason enough to not buy them. then there's the fact that all their designs are copies of other rims. but i say, hey, as a thrifty shopper, and not just absolutely driving the living **** out of my car, rotas are fine by me.

Re: what size rims to choose?

ok guys lets not talk about how bad or good rota's wheels are. you can search and find a lot of threads about that. just focus on the OP's questions. anymore posts about the quality of rota's wheels will be deleted.

heres a thread about the quality of rotas. http://preludezone.com/showthread.ph...highlight=rota

Re: what size rims to choose?

I like the subzeros. 16"s, for color I'd say either gunmetal or the standard gray.

Re: what size rims to choose?

Have you thought about Rota C10's? Stay away from anything with a polished lip if you have problems with rusting.

17" for sure then you can run tyres with a 45mm profile is its at stock height or mildly lowered, or a 40mm is your even lower.
