Default Looking for some pics of 17" Rota Boost

If anyone has 17x8 +35 or +48 Rota Boosts on WRX's can you please post them up? I did some searches and either no one likes to post them or state what sizes they are and most of them are 18's. I want to see the difference on how it looks since the +35 sits 13mm more out. Thanks!

Ive got 17x8 +35 Boosts on my GM.

Ive got Muteki SR48 (long) lugs on there too. Just to give you an idea. There isnt a difference really in the face. Lugs just sit a little deeper.

dingobite-what's the offset on your old ride? +35?

Fishheadback-looks sweet on your RS. I wonder if that flushness will be the same on my 07 WRX.

17x8 boost 48,offset 5x100


Ive seen some pics of advan RG2s, 42 offset i think they look identical to the 30 offset boost which makes me want them i wouldnt need to roll my fenders and go with a crazy alignment with a 42 offset.

I thought et35 is the most aggressive for the 17's? Rolling fenders isn't a prob with me, I do paint and body. I also have Helix coilovers and camber bolts in the back(can't remember what brand).

Im not sure a look on subydudes site or ads will tell you what offsets you can get im pretty sure only 17s will have a gtr look to them if you go agressive on the offset 18 inch rims look almost identical no matter the offset.

Theres two people Dmoney and another guy in the black thread running tommy gold on OBP both have a few pictures of the boosts up in the members gallery their rides look great.

*Groan* More picture searching.

I checked up on Rotawheels.com and the most aggressive Boost in 5x100 is 17x8 et35.

I'm not completely sold on my choice, I bought the white wheels before seeing just how "pearl" my SWP WRX would be. Offset 48, summer stock tires. BTW, the WinterSport 3D Dunlops were awesome this winter.

I agree with you too. I'm not sold on the 17" Boosts either. The 18" look 10x better. Its weird how the stock 17"s look bigger than the 17" Boosts. But the 17" Rota Torque R's look big and fill out the fenders way better

Those are slipstreams...

At Wntrmute2, good luck keeping those clean. I have the exact same ones and I wish I would have gotten a different color. The day after you wash them they are filthy again.
