Anyone running Rotas?

I'm thinking about getting wheels soon and I keep coming back to Rotas. They have the offset/width that I want and for the money they seem like a great deal. Anyone running any on their 7th gen and if so what size/models do you have and how do you like them? Any issues? Also, are they lightweight or heavy for their size? Pictures would be great, too!

I have 18" Rota Subzeros for my 6 gen coupe but I haven't put them on yet because of winter up here. From what I've read, they aren't heavy and aren't light- they're average. Rota did make wheels for chrysler (i think) so the quality can't be bad. Checkout 00Accord4cyl's profile, he's running rota subzeros on his 6 gen (if that helps).

Thanks man, that does give me a good idea of what they look like on an Accord, though it's a 6 gen. I was actually thinking about the Subzero's in bronze, but I also really like the Torques in bronze with a polished lip.

Anyone else???

Wow, great looking 6th gen man! I really like the polished lip on the subzeros. What size tire are you running? Are yours 7.5 or 8" wide? What offset? Where did you get them from? Oh, and one more question, what size hub did you get because I know one's for subarus and ones for hondas. Thanks!

cheap / light / strong.....pick 2

if you're on a budget and looking for something to roll around town on,(or you change wheels on your whip like your underwear) then ya go for the Rota's....but if you're going to be driving your car hard/ taking it to the track, look elsewhere - you get what you pay for when it comes to rims
