Didn't they stop making those remembers?. Just throw in 15mm adapters to get to 20.

you're going to want to run the +20et...you can find them at JLBMotorsports. they're listed as mixxim, but they're made by konig;

dude therei is no difference between et35 and et20. with et 20 you buy 5mm spacers for rear and et35 you buy 20mm spacers for the rear and 15 up front. i bought mine for 500 shipped brand new. i ran 205/40/16. you can get stretch on A 7" wheel but youi will need to special order 165/45/16 from japan and they get spendy. whats the point of stretch on a 7" wheel though? only time you need stretch is to fit the tires under your fenders cuz the wheel is too wide. it just looks stupid on a 7" wheel unless you have it massivly spaced out and then it still looks awkward. i would buy them used if i were you cuz you are gunna get sick of them quick. and they are really hard to get rid of. nooone wants replicas

what do you mean no one wants replicas? you realize that half the LMs you see on cars people oogle over are reps too right? and you do realize that this thread is a prime example of someone wanting reps? not everyone has the money to drop on RS/RM/LM/RGR/anything-else-you-want-to-fit-in-this-slot. take a look at other car communities, notably subarus. they rock rotas all day, with some models of rota setting the 'hella-flush' trend in the bay area.

....... where did this argument come from?........



i bought my Rota formels because it was the closest i can find to the BBS GT.
Image
so i ended up with Rota Formel.
Image
I like to go with more of an old skool look. id like to go with the actual BBS RS, but too expensive for me.

didnt start a thread to argue. just wanted to know what you guys think of konigs remember.
