Default Rota fitment question

For all the guys who have bought Rotas for their GC8 body style.

Do you need to get hub centering rings etc? Are there any unexpected thing to get before getting them?? Thanks!

No you do not need rings. I have a GC8 STI with 215 45 17 tires and no problems. But, some people say that they get rubbing on a certain brand of tires which are oversized. Can't remember what brand though

Nope, you get to buy em seperately. I reccomend McGard SplineDrive lugs. Avoid Kyougen lugs, as they strip out really easilly.
