So I forgot to update here. But I bought the 17x9 titans in sports bronze and wrapped them in 255/40 continental DW's fit perfect and love the way they sit and look

Good luck I live in pa as well

Hey guys, this is my current setup and I have a weird problem :c


The wheel caps I have on them are so ugly?


How would I go about removing them/making them look like this?

Peel the stick off? Or get new wheel caps? Or take the cap off entirely?

Do you know how to take a wheel off? If you can do that, you can change the center caps.

Center caps typically pop off easily, but instead of prying on them from the front and potentially gouging them, I'd recommend removing the wheel and pop them off from behind. Replacing them can be tricky because not all center caps are the same.

If the logo in the center is hard enough, you could tape off the edges and scuff it with a scotch brite pad and paint it. Or remove the sticker entirely like Cole mentioned. If the sticker removed leaves an ugly surface, you could buy some spare premade carbon panel and cut round discs to fit into them.

If you really want to do that but don't know how, I work with carbon every day, if you'd be willing to send me your caps I could bond some carbon discs into the centers.

I see, I'd have to buy a torque wrench wouldn't I? What kind of torque specs would I need for these lug nugs? 90ft.lb? I just want to make sure I do it right.

Oh and thanks for the offer, but I'm probably going to buy some flat universal ones probably after popping these ones out (apparently the size of the rota caps are 63mm?)

Yep you got it, I think the manual states 89 lb-ft but 90 is fine. Torque wrenches can get expensive but the one from Harbor Freight works great for occasional garage use. Look for the 1/2" drive click type, you might need a 1/2" socket size that fits your spline drive key, I think it's a 19mm but I'm not sure... 1/2" refers to the square connector on the wrench. The 3/8 wrench doesn't go to high enough torque.

Thanks! <3

I actually pulled the sticker off to see what it'd look like underneath, turns out there was a big hole in the middle. So I just got an L shape piece of metal and pulled it out, took a few minutes to get them all off.

(I still bought the correct torque wrench anyway for future usage!)

Rota has a new logo design that looks much better. You could try finding the new design center caps.

this may be a noob question, but in (5x100/e42/73) what does the "73" mean?

I'm wanting to get rota titans but wanted to know if this is a good set up for a DD/ drag strip car. 177.5 front and 179.5 for a rear
Tire size I'm thinking 235/35/17 front and 265/35/17 rear. This will be on stock suspension for now

It's going to suck not being able to rotate tires and I'm guessing your FI or have a engine swap so you can use all that tire.
