  • Rota RB Wheels?

    Is anyone running 16" Rota RBs? http://www.aspecwheels.net/index.php?route=product/product&path=20_27_62_1027_1030&product_id=1567

    Saw some posts on people running 17" RBs, but nothing about 16s.

      205 60 16 Potenza. I believe that 205 65 16 is closer to our original 185R15 but there was much more tire selection in the 60 series than the 65 when I was shopping.

                  Thanks for posting these. I like the look of the hyper blacks and was planning to put silver side stripes on the car. This confirms that the silver and hyper black look awesome together. Are your rims +4 offset?

                    Sorry, I have had these wheels for at least 5 years and I don't remember the offset. I did just order them "off the shelf" so whatever the common stock offset for these wheels is is what I must have. No rubbing, no caliper problems. I had a local stripe shop make inserts for the caps with a TR logo that doesn't show well in these pics but looks great. I will try to round up a pic and add it here.

                    They were one of the first sets made in hyper black and I had to wait 3 months for them to be produced and delivered.

                    My car was delivered new with the optional magnesium wheels and I thought that the RB's were the most similar to those of all the options available today. When the XAs became stale dated on the original wheels I found that I could purchase the RB's and Potenzas for less than the new XAs copies. That coupled with the unobtanium of the original mags made the decision easy to go with the RB's and Potenzas for daily driving keeping the rare mags unblemished for show and future resale.
