Default My Rota's

I switched over to snow tires this weekend. What I like about these rota sdr's is the simplicty of design. Makes it a whole lot eaiser to clean when compared to the stock bbs wheels.

Yes i can understand the thanksgivivg date but we had some light snow already. I was way to paranoid about getting caught with those stock tires.

looks good. coincidentally, i switched from my BBS wheels to a winter 5 spoke set myself today.

mesh wheels are a real pita to wash even with a boar's brush.

Did you notice any difference in acceleration with the added wheel weight?

The tires are Blizzak WS-50's. It is hard to answer the question about a noticeable difference due to wheel weight since the whole car feels different. The car is definitely harder to stop, even the brembo's feel inadequate on dry pavement. I think the ride is reasonable considering they are snow tires.

Incorrect my friend. I used to have a Probe. Those are 1993-1994 wheels. 1995-1997 had these...

Thumbs up Not bizad

I have always liked the way the Rota SDR's look 18" even though they are only 17". Still wish they would come out with some 18"s though. Nice color choice!
