Talking Finally...My Special Edition Rota G-Force Has Arrived!

Well guys... my wheels have "Finally Arrived" after the first shipment was lost. These are "Special Edition" wheels that are "Super Limited".

The color is Yamaha Black with a Candy Tone Blue Lip. Size: 18x9 with a 35mm offset. My '08 FXT is lowered on Tein S-Tech springs made specifically for the JDM FXT STI. I'm still using factory shocks.

Tell me what you guys think. I think the front has to be a little more lower but overall I'm HAPPY with them. These photos were taken at the shop that installed them, using a crappy old 2.1 megapixel camera.








It's pretty flushed with the fenders without using camber bolts. I'll drive it around a little today to see how they ride.

Great! Looks just awesome! My felicitations!

You have to find some nice backgrounds and take a couple of shots with good camera. I'd bet that would be a great calendar material! :)

Those are the most pimp rims i've seen on a Forester. I like!

Thanks everyone! I was just too excited, so I used the shop's camera. I'll take better ones later with better angles....

that looks great man. I was wondering about the color - seems like it matches well!

edit - i also just noticed the tint (was looking at the wheels to much lol) - i like the tint job too: good shade, and consistent all the way around. nice.

If I were a tuner I would have those wheels. However, I like my Subie dirty.

Well done.

Definitely different...but looks good. I have been wondering what a 8.5+ rota would look like.

Where did you get them from? Did they come from rota painted like that?

Tires look a bit stretched, size?

4eat, 20G XT, EWG, Yimi Tuned....

Those are pimp man!
Glad to see a set finally made it to you.

They look awesome, glad to see I'm not the only person who thinks Time Attack wheels should come in colours other than red.

Your 245/40's look a little on the stretched side though, but still looks good.
