New Shoes

Finally got my new wheels on, and yes they are Rotas.

Specs: Rota P45R 17x9 Tires are Ziex's in 235 45 17.

Yes the tires are a bad size, but i swear no one carries a 245 or 255 40 17 in Cheyenne so I just settled to these. Oh well, post your opinions!










Sorry for the crappy cell pics. Ill Post High Res later.

Yes they do, but I was on a serious time crunch and what not so I just settled. Also I went bronze because you dont see it alot on gg.

Nice car overall. Bronze doesn't look too bad, but I think in order to justify a stretch like that, you need to lower it more.

Never just settle on important things such as tires. I've never bought tires from a local tire shop, ever. They always charge too much, they probably won't carry the size us Evo drivers are looking for, and they only carry a select few brands. I know you've heard of TireRack before.

Wheels look good. Try going to Fart Collins for tires or see if you can order them from the BX and have them intsalled at the Auto Hobby Shop on base.

I honestly think its the angle at which the pictures were taken. To see it in person the stretch really isnt all that bad. i would like more tire, but its not nearly as stretched as alot of peoples set ups. In regards to the color, I'm going to take some high res shots tomorrow. The color really is quite amazing.

Bronze looks real good. White would look ugly.

I feel the same. Others may not like the color, but I think it looks amazing. BTW your wheels look real good in person.
