Default No 16" Rota's available except for slipstreams

I hate the look of slipstreams.

I want reasonably good looking, not to heavy, not too expensive 16's that fit over 4-pots.

But I can't seem to find ET48 5x100 Rota's in 16 besides the slips.

Are they available?

Probably have heard it a hundred times, but some 98-01 RS wheels would check that box. (Well, I like the looks anyway)

hehe. i feel your pain. trying to get away from 17" on my v5 car (currently running some that i had lying around). i have 00-01 RS 6-spokes, but those i need for snow tires most likely. I'd love to just find a nice, new set of 16's to buy, but there's none out there it seems. its a combo i think of wanting an "out-dated" size (the industry thinks 17 is small anymore and we should all be running 18's and 19's), and trying to fit a less popular bolt pattern (5x100).

Darn it eh? i hate the K1's, so thats out. Just need something good to roll around on. 16x7 isn't much to ask. Slips work great for me tho, to fill the bill for race wheels, as i can get 16x8, and run 245/45/16's. I just don't want that look all the time...

Yes... I'm looking for a set of 6 spokes right now. But if I can get a set of Rota SDRs or Track R's in 16, I'd be more interested.

let me know if you find any 6 spoke 16" out there. rota does make lots of stuff in 16" but none of it in the 5x100 pattern. most of the smaller wheels for stuff like hondas are just 4 bolts.

Good suggestion on the 16's...

But I'm looking for economical 16" beaters that I won't worry about at rallyx but still look good and don't weight a lot. The SSR, Gramlights, and Volks are excellent but all expensive. Rotas are cheap, come in all sorts of styles, and aren't that heavy for a cheap wheel.

RS 6-spokes seem to be the only thing.
