Default Rota DPT on Forester... 17x9...

Just got my new Rota Volk knock-offs from Wheeldude. I couldn't be happier. The service was fantastic, the price was right ($850 shipped), the size was perfect, they actually weighed-in at exactly 19.6 each (which isn't at all bad for a 9" wide wheel...), and they balanced with less weight than the 17x8" Work Kai's that they replaced.













Just because someone will ask, here is a short/quick list of stats on the Forester...

'06 WRX sedan donor struts
Koni Yellows
Swift Spec-R springs
Motorsport M camber plates
Paranoid 3/8" rear spacers
245/40 RE01R's
Whiteline: Motorsport M camber plates, rear strut bar, 27/29 front sway, spherical endlinks, lateral link supports, botox bolts
STi: '04 Steering rack, '05 brake booster and master cylinder, front Brembos, rear sway, TMIC, VF-39, wheel and airbag, scoop
Kartboy super shifter bundle plus knob
SS lines
HP+ pads
H-6 rear swap
vented rotors
Cobb AP V.2 Protuned by Scott Seigel at Topspeed (300/350)
APS 3" TBE
'04 WRX seats

and a bunch of other stuff I'm too lazy to list... I'm saving up for a 6 speed.

Thanks!

I've tried both 20% and 35% but I like it better without. I think tint makes it look like a big toy or something... I'm weird.

It is factory... and it's molded into the bumper. I think that the bumpers will swap between the years though... so you MAY be able to get an '07-'08 Sport bumper in your color...??? All that's custom on my rear cosmetically is the top bumper pad, rear spoiler, flat-black painted lower rear window trim, '08 tail lights, and bebadging...
