I know I'm late on this, but I was going through this thread, read this, and laughed my ass off. Drake's voice: "started from the bottom now we here!"

Yeah that looks great, probably the only color I'd switch my gold ones out for.

This thread has totally got me hooked on Rotas, now i just have to decide on which set. Been looking at 17x9's and deciding between Grids and the new RT5. Thoughts? (Yes, I'm sticking w/ 17's b/c I don't wana pay twice as much for tires )

And does anyone know the weight on the 17x9 RT5's? I know grids are ~20lbs

Thanks! I really like the look too. Even though it looks like you could stuff a fist between the wheelwell and the tire, I do have some rubbing issues on significant dips etc. Could be the tires, could be wheel width. Haven't really figured out where the "rub" is..... still looks sweet though!

Been a while. Cleaned them over the weekend, polished them up. Was also restoring the head lights, which is cause for the tape and lack of bumper.
