Default Rota's for sale in calgary?

Hey guys,

Does anyone know of a shop (or individual) in calgary that sells rotas? i've called a couple places now with no luck.. Specifically, i'm looking for rota torques 17x7.5

Speaking of which, anyone have an opinion on which colour would look best on my brilliant '97 red outback sport (with the metalic grey side skirts). I'm leaning towards gunmetal, but the bronze and dark steel ones look pretty nice too.

I know I can order them online, but it seems most online retailers aren't exactly close to me, and it seems like I might be able to get a better deal by finding a local vendor.

If nobody knows of any, I guess i'll just place an order with subydude.

Thanks in advance,
Doobie

Thanks RCYK, that place seems a little pricey compared to subydude though.

Also, it says on that website, the 17x7.5 torques will fit wrx 02 and up, but I was under the impression they would fit fine on my '97 OBS. Anyone know for sure if they will fit on my car?

I realize i probably won't be able to put 225's on them without modification, but they should fit with 215's right?

They'll fit. Don't know why he specifies '02 WRX up. The 215's should work fine, but check with your tire vendor to make sure they are ok with it.

Thanks frag,

Also, i'm going from 16 inch wheels to 17, so I'm going to need a corresponding drop in tire height to avoid throwing off the speedo, i beleive i had 215 45's on there before, so if i stay with 215's, would 215 40's provide an adequate height difference to compensate?

Northern Performance is a pretty nice option. The PITA (pain in the ***) of getting rims out of the states can be pretty bad.

But that's just my 2 cents.

Actually, Northern Performance's prices aren't too bad at all.
I work out about $920 for a set of 17" Torques from Subydude, including taxes and duties. $969 for a set of 17 x 7 Torques is alright for someone who's local to them.
