I was thinking about getting the SDR's but was also interested in the finish. Tex-WReX who/where did you get yours from. bronze is exactly what I want as well. Do you remember the measurments?

I had some gold attacks and the finish held up quite well . I've got some gold SDRs now but they are still in the box so I can't comment on durability.


BTW: Are you going to test those new tires next weekend at the horse track?!?!?!?

Later,
Dustin

I have 13K on sliver Subzeros with polished lip and the finish is still perfect. Actually averything about the wheel has been perfect, not a single complaint.

I have some steel grey SDRs that look awesome, ive only had them on for 1000 miles, so i can't really comment on their durability yet, they look awesome though. I got mine from Subydude, i recommend him, a great vendor, easy to keep in contact as well.

soobie newbie- all sdrs are 17x7.5, 48mm offset. I am running Azenis 225/45/17s. I went local (Discount tire), but Subydude has an excellent rep here on nasioc. I was able to save few dollars, and I am cheap that way. And, I really like the sdrs and I am glad I waited almost a year and a half before finding my ideal wheel.

We've sold quite a few of these and I have not yet heard someone having problems w/ 'em.

Are you having any issues?

I have bronze SDRs and I found a little hole (kinda looks like the cast was dirty when the wheels were cast) on one spoke in every wheel. I sent some pics to Rota. They told me the engineers looked at them and that they are superficial and no cause for alarm. I sure hope so. I will be putting tires in the next coming weeks and we'll see.
