I heard a rumor that they will be coming out in the next few months.. I think the Rota Rep's handel is RotaWheels . You can try and PM him and ask, or search.

you ever wonder why the wheels you want never come in the size your looking for....like the slipstreams for eg. or the konig heliums, i love...but no 18's only 15,16,17 or 19.... like what happend to 18. (spaceballs anyone, "what happened to 7..."just kidding"") below is the helium for those who care.

That's really too bad, I think they would sell very well. Is it really that difficult to produce them in 17"?

Think they will fit on a Wagon with stock suspension? If so, I just might have to get a set.

they should fit... you'll need to run 215 tires.

SD what tire size did you have on your 18's? It looks like 215/40/18 is the best match for size, but the selection is pretty limited.

STiJard - w/ a wagon i always suggest people go w/ the 215/40/18 series tires.

yes.. i know... its not as wide as the 225...

you can go 225... you'll get wider tires and a larger selection on tires aswell but you will have to mod you wheel well.

hope that helps.

Thanks for the info. I'm not worried as much about how wide they are. I'm more worried that there seems to be absolutely no selection in that size.

still no hints as to whether or not they are 18x8 or 18x7.5, what about a little hint, like telling us what size tire you have on in the pic

RR...............the agony of waiting

Tarmac 2s are 18x7.5

The reason why there are not much 18s available is that the demand for 18s has tremendously tapered off. Everyone seems to prioritize performance over looks these days.

I think everybody is going with the JDM route, which runs in smaller diameter wheels for performance. but the funny thing is, right when americans are trying to go small, now JDM people start to go big. look at all those new 19s volks that all just came out.

I've run 225 series tires on my wagon with Tein WGN coilovers and rear adjustable camber bolts on both Speedline GT-1s (18x7.5" +48mm) and Prodrive PFF7s (18x8" +51mm). If you stick with the narrower 225s (Toyo T1-S, Kumhos, etc.), you should be fine in the rear.
