Stuck on Rotas

Okay, im tired of my ride looking so stock.

Going to drop it 2", and slap some 16's or 17's on it.

I'm Currently stuck on Rotas because of their price and looks
(I'm not gonna race, so this is purely cosmetics)

I'm between: Rota Grid Racing, Rota IK-F's and Rota IK-R's

Here's my current stock rims....

Re: Stuck on Rotas

I would pick the 3rd one cause gunmetal looks damn good on white. Why you getting rid of your stockies. Your stockies are the em1 rims, you can take them and polish them up and slam your car on the ground and it would look really good.

Re: Stuck on Rotas

hmm tough choice. if the car is staying stockish like it is now, go with first one. if you planning more mods, go with 3.

That's not really gunmetal.. looks more polished to me

But I do agree, gunmetal looks badass, especially on white.

So, are you stuck on the fat-spoke design? Just curious to see if I could find some other cheap, good looking rims. I know Buddy Clubs aren't too terribly expensive. Same price range, actually, but most of them are skinny spoked rims.

Re: Stuck on Rotas

IMO the best looking wheels on a white Honda are the white type-r rims..
