Thanks, I agree that the GR platform lends itself to being low quite nicely.

I tried to do a little bit of photoshopping to it as well. Here's what I ended up with after a quick edit:

does anyone have detailed pics of the 17x7.5 rota grids on their car?? i guess they have much less of a concave look?

i currently have the 05 LGT wheels on my car, and would like to re-use the tires on rota grids.. think i can fit them on the 17x8, or should i stick to the 17x7.5?

thanks!

Looks like the 17x8 has a little more concave to it. You can fit a 17x8 on a 215/45/17, but it will probably be a little stretched.

^^ my current tires are 215/50 r 17.. how much of a stretch do you think??

also, does anyone have pics of the 17x7.5 OR 17x8 on their car? i have my car at stock ride height, should i be ok about rubbing if i get the 35+ or above offset with either of the wheel sizes i listed?


*EDIT*
nevermind.. i think the 17x8 only come in bronze in the 5x100 pattern... im looking either for black or hyper black
