Wheel Directory: Rota Titan 17x9.0 +45











Love this setup very good service from wheeldude they have definitely have spent some time doing UX training.

17x9 Rota Titan -Hyper Black (5x100/e42/73) @ 17.8lbs

PilotSuper Sport 245/40/17 @ 23lbs

I got 40.9lbs total weight not sure where the .1 extra came from?

OEM17" wheel & tire combo= 41.4 lbs

This setup saved about .5 lbs per corner and gained a huge amount of grip for very little $.

Cost of the Titans with Christmas sale was about $700 shipped


Money I saved compared to rimes I was going to get got me this:

RaceCompEngineering "Yellow" Lowering Springs

Camberbolts for the front

2mm spacers (just in case I needed them on the front, I did not so I used them on the back for a little more poke).

Lifttime aliments to my specks at firestone.

Were the Camberbolts actually necessary?
For the cost there a no-brainer your going to want a way to control camber.

Got a set of these in white for my SWP sitting in my garage. Waiting for weather to get a bit better over here.

Is this before you put the racecomp springs on?

Regardless...sweet ride!
PSS have a rounded edge so it enhances that effect. I don't know about DIIs, but I hear RS3s run pretty wide. Even so, a 255 is more "fitted" to a 9" wheel anyway. My 2010 STi had 8.5" wide wheels and the 245 Dunlops had a slight stretch.

The 245s have slight stretch the pics do not do it justice they look quit meatey.

If I had to do it again I would go 255.

the pics are with the racecomp springs on it, looks lower in person.

Personally I think this is a very good DD setup that can be fun at the track also.

The Sup is very fun and gives me the big HP fix I need every once in a while.

255/40 all day on 17x9 best bet. Love the way asphalt looks with hyper black.
I got grids in hyper black on my asphalt. Looking good bro!

Weeeeeeeird, they are listed under STI but not under the FRS so I did not even know they had them! I would have ordered a set on the black Friday sale had I known!!!
I called and asked, wheeldude did not know they weren't on the web for the FRS so they added it after my call.

Talking White on White: White Rota Titan 17x9 F+R on SWP BRZ

Finally got my wheels installed last night.





They are Rota Titans
17x9 Front and Rear
245/40-17 Bridgestone RE11-a Front
255/40-17 Bridgestone RE11-a Rear

Needed a 5mm spacer in front to clear the factory strut perches.

Will update with some better pictures when I get some soon. Needs to be washed bad.

Is the 5mm spacer needed? or did you just use it for your peace of mind?

you still using the stock lug bolts or did you have to get longer ones?

Without the spacer it is way too close. No it doesn't quite touch, but it's not a safe clearance. I have seen others with 3mm spacers on the same offset and I will probably switch to 3s when I get some time.

Still using stock lugs.
