don't think so, how can you tell if they are or not? i'm guessing there's some sort of ring where the wheel mounts? i never looked, but i don't get any vibration when i'm on the highway going like 70ish if that helps.

only the very early rotas where NOT hubcentric...so If you got them recently...chances are they are hubcentric.

take the center cap off and see hub sits flush with the center of the wheel.

or just take a pic with the center cap off while the wheel is mounted on the car and I can tell you.

just in info post. dont need the wheels, though the price is very fair w/those tires

can't see any signs of the wheel not being flush on the hub, also felt around and everything seems to be fine. here's a pic, don't know if you can tell from this one or not cause of the size limitation. i've got a couple more, some with a penny in the tread also, so just leave your email addresses if you want bigger pictures sent to you.

from the looks of it, they are not hubcentric, but its hard to tell from the pic...the center circle of the wheel should be the same size as the center of the hub, it looks like there is a gap on the bottom....and no gap on the top.

i marked in green what looks like a gap between the hub and the center of the wheel, it should be flush all the way around the way the top appears to be...if they where hubcentric.

edit yea, Impreza25rs2000@aol.com

jimmyjrc, just sent you bigger pics. mcdade, i sent you another one that came out a lot brighter so it will probably be easier to see. here's a pic of the penny in the tread that i took last night.

Never received those additional pictures, Did you send them to my private message box or E-mail. Send them as a private message, it's easier for me to get it during the day.
Thanks
jimmy

I'll check again when I get home.
If I don't have it, send them as a private, or is it to big?

lowered to $735 obo. if anyone doesn't want the wheels and tires, anyone want just the tires since i'm guessing most of the reason why no one wants these is because their painted white and don't go with most car colors.

BTW,

If these were not hubcentric you'd get a nasty vibration at speed - like on the freeway - and it's really noticable!! There would be little metal shavings around the hub as well, as it shreds the hub and rim as it vibrates. I personally see no evidence of that from your pics, though.

I bought my Rotas about a year ago and they are hubcentric, so if yours are around a year old or less then they probably are as well.

Hope that helps...

i just checked the wheels cause i took them off last weekend, i couldn't find any metal shavings and the back of the mounting area for the wheels is pretty smooth.

some guy's actually going to buy them tomorrow if he gets back to me today on where we're going to meet. i'll update the post tomorrow
