Customer: Dave Mann
Car: 1998 Subaru Impreza
Wheels: 18×10 Rota SVN-R - Flat Black (5×100/114.3/E30/73)
Tires: Bridgestone RE-11 265/35/18
We all know how much work you have to put on a car to get a feature on Modified Magazine. Dave did just that back in 2010 with his monster GC8 rocking 18×10 SVN-R’s in Flat Black. Dave was one of the first people to run these aggressive wheels which were intended to turn like its on rails at the track. Dave’s GC also ran some spacers to push the wheels out to +5 offset in the front and +1 offset in the rear to fill out those massive custom installed Jun S13 Silvia fenders. This has to be one of the craziest cars to ever grace the pages of wheeldude.com!

Two days ago, we posted up our Bugeye on Sports Bronze Titans. (Click HERE to see the previous feature.) Today we would like to show you the other side of the car, still rocking the Rota Titans but in Flat Black. These wheels fit great on the GD and they look pretty big for 17″ wheels. Let us know what you think!

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you will most definitely notice that Instagram is the “place to be” nowadays. Most of us “car people” are kept up to date on the trendy car stuff all because of this social networking app. I’m sure a lot of you can relate if we say that 90% of our Instagram feed consists of cars, mainly because we follow people who are also into the same hobby as we are. Then there are some car pages that we follow who regularly post the sickest rides out there, one of them is @subaru_vs_mitubishi, which brings us to the owner of the STI on this feature.
Meet Chris, the man behind @subaru_vs_mitsubishi on Instagram, and the proud owner of a 2011 STI rocking the 18×10 Rota RT5’s. The story was simple, Chris bought a used set of G-Forces, loved the look and strength of the wheels and when it was time to buy another set of wheels for his car, he googled “Rota” and he found us. Looking through the pictures on our website, Chris fell in love with the Grids but at the same time wanted something different. It was the perfect timing because the RT5’s were just released back then and as soon as Chris saw it, he was dead set on them.
Chris is the first guy to rock the 18×10 RT5’s on a GR body. Knowing that these wheels look good on any car you put them on, we can foresee that these wheels are going to start a trend just like the Rota Grids did.
One of Chris’ future plans would be to run meatier tires once his current tires run out. 265’s? 275’s? We can’t wait to see those on Chris’s STI!
We will leave you with this for now but count on it, Chris’ will be back with his updated set up real soon.
