Default Rota rim question.

How would one go about getting a set of Rota IK-R's in 17x9.5 for 5x100 fitment up here? Is it impossible?

I don't understand, are you wanting to know where to buy them? I don't think you will find them locally.

Wait....isn't that just a Rota Grid?

Edit: yes, rota grid. Buy from wheeldude.com, have them shipped to Alaska Fast Freight in Washington (after getting a quote from AFF) and then have AFF ship them up here. I think it took my wheels like 1-2 weeks doing it this way and I am pretty sure it was only around $75 for all four wheels. I can't remember if wheeldude ships to the lower 48 for free but I think so..

ebay, in addition to wheeldude

Going to cost you $30-40 per wheel to ship, but you are probably used to that living in Alaska, or are you trying to find a dealer there with them?

Do you have contact information for them... I've been hoping someone would provide this service

Do they do larger items, IE: transmissions, hoods, engines?

With AFF you gotta have a business to ship too. Luckily I work for a distribution company that AFF ships to already

Huh? When I did it a couple years back they shipped it to their anchorage location and I picked it up there.
