Wheel Directory: Rota Grid-V Speed Bronze 17x9.0 +42

Specs

Rota Grid-V 17X9 +42 Speed Bronze
Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 245/40/17

Car lowered ~1" on RCE Springs. Fitment is flush in the rear with slight poke in the front. Attempted to provide a few different lighting scenarios to show how the color changes during the day, will take more when time provides!

To be honest I have not tested them thoroughly just yet. The setup is a HUGE upgrade from stock. Car feels very planted and I am able to take turns 10mph faster than before (then my own limitations stop me).

Extremely happy customer, looking to wear the tires in thoroughly at Thunderhill this month.

Nice, I'm interested in trying them out, but I know people complained about the sidewalls being soft on the first version, so I've been waiting for some decent reviews on the "new" version of the tire.

Keep us posted!

Looks awesome. Always wondered why this wheel isn't more popular. The stepped lip is very generous on this design. Even for the rota crowd, this wheel isn't very popular. Can I ask where you bought from? And if there was a waiting period.

Thanks! I picked these up from SpeedElement in San Jose who have done work on my car in the past. It took them 3-4 days to get them in stock.

I also spoke with Wheeldude located in California, essentially a Rota USA distributor. Huge selection, reasonable prices.

Where did you buy these wheels? Can't seem to on the ROTA website.

Thank you, Sir! I was really worried about the stretch at first but it wasn't that bad when it got mounted. they still have a lot of life so wanted to wear them out.

The rears are on base/factory drop which is -1.2 inches (afaik). And I dropped the front a little bit, I'd say fronts are about ~1.4 inches.

How tight are these around the calipers? Wondering if you could squeeze the Wilwood 6 piston big brakes or the AP sprint kit in there?
