with 18x8.5 would I have to get fenders rolled? And I do like those D-forces. These aren't bad either.

I've heard XXR's are cheap and everyone I've talked to about their Rota's love them. Also with wheels generally "What you pay for is what you get"

Ive heard alot of things... Also I have rota's and xxr's and there both fine only difference is the finish on the xxr's is a bit soft. You always get what you pay for. Sometimes its just not worth the money. Lastly rota's are cheap xxr's are cheaper.

No that's the largest you can run without modifying the fender at least with a reasonable 245 width tire.

IMO don't get xxr's

And the rota pwr's smallest size is 18x9.5" lol

Doubt it. A custom tune would be your best option.

FYI, RC-G4 only comes in 15s... perfect for gravel rallying.

Similar design RC-T4 comes in 17s... perfect for tarmac rallying.

How many layers of plasti dip did you do? I've had my trunk chrome plasti-dipped for over a year (if not longer) and it's still holding on the same as the first day.
