Default Picture of Rota Subzero's

Those are nice rims. But where are the caps? Do they not fit?

Who cares about caps, those rims only cost $500 for all 4 and weight 16lbs each and are 17x7.5! SCREW THE CAPS! Buy your own caps

No, they are not forged....I mean look how cheap they are. Anyhow I got a set of white subzeros on my car. the quality seems good for the price, the paint could be a tad better but considering the cost, i can't realy complain.

Hello All,

I thought the wheels looked better without the caps, but the wheels do come with carbon fiber style snap-in caps. Not forged, but inexpensive and light at 16.5 lbs. New Pro-drive P1 style coming from Rota, though its going to be heavier than 16.5lbs.

Here's a wagon with Sub-Zero's.

According to www.SeriousAuto.com, the SubZeros are 17x7, not 17x7.5 unless they offer more than one 17"

I got my Sub Zeros from slomves, and he hooked me up with a pretty good deal on tires too.

Serious Auto lists them as 17x7.5" same as everywhere else.

The two most common sizes for 17" on the Subaru are the subaru recommended 215/45/17, which is slightly smaller than stock and 225/45/17, which is slightly larger than stock.

I went with 225/45/17 PZero Rossos, I haven't been disappointed. I'd rather have 215/45/17, but the Rossos aren't made in that size, so 225 it was.

On the order page, it clearly says, in numerous places 17x7.5:

http://www.seriousauto.com/wheels-ti...zero/index.htm

These wheels are 7.5" wide.


Edit:
Looks like that link is to the old page, which still works. They seem to have made a mistake in the site facelift, as the new page does list 17x7. Sorry, I have been using an old bookmark. The wheels are definitely 7.5" wide though. If you need confirmation, I'm sure slomves has a set in stock he would measure for you. Every other source I have seen lists 7.5"

Send him a PM or call him, he was very quick to respond to my requests before I bought from him. Nothing like a vendor who gives customer service support through i-club.
