Ohh, I like the sound of that. I can't decide between 18x8 or 17x9 anyways.

What is more valuable: the stock wheels off a 2011 WRX or a set of Rotas?

What is more valuable: a brand new set of 2011 OEM WRX rims or a brand new set of popular Rotas for the 2011+ WRX?

And if you replaced your 2011 WRX wheels with Rotas, would that be considered a downgrade or upgrade in terms of quality?

Same size?

I'd say the Rotas will be more valuable. Quality will be about the same.

It's a tough call since people are still treating '11 stockers like gold and asking a ****load of money for them.

I wouldn't call it a downgrade but im sure there's members out there that would. Also the price range for mostly all the rota's in the same size(17x8) would be $729-829 shipped. Most of the wrx oem wheels I see go for around $600-800 with tires. That said I would still call rotas more valuable but in the end its all personal preference.

That's pretty cool. At that price its almost like getting an alternate set of wheels then. That option strikes me as pretty reasonable. I am really turned off by the idea of paying over $1k for wheels and then scuffing them on the potholes and curbs of NYC. I am not cheap, but man would it eat at me if I took a chunk out of a Volk.

I have 2011 sti sedan lowered on rce yellows lowering springs. I just bought 18x9.5 rota T2R with +38 offset with 245/40/18 tires. I have my rear fenders rolled! Do i have to go negative chamber to avoid rubbing or i can go with normal chamber?

With it lowered, the rear should be around -2.5 camber in the rear, which comes naturally with lowering it. And only running a 245 you should be fine...

I have 18x9.5 +35 with a 245/40/18 and lowered on eibachs. About 1.5 degrees of camber. I rolled just to be safe but it didnt rub on my drive to the shop to get it rolled.

How about 18x9.5 +38 wheels on stock height (2011+ wrx/sti)? Anyone got picture of that? I'm thinking about getting a set of Rota grids in that dimension but I don't want to lower my car or roll my fenders so I'm wondering how it would look at stock heights.
