The Wheeldude FRS on 18×8.5/18×9.5 Flat Black DPT’s

Owner: Wheeldude
Car: 2013 Scion FRS
Wheels: 18×8.5/9.5 Rota DPT - Flat Black (5×100/114.3/e44F/e44R/73)
Tires: 225/40/18 Front; 255/35/18 Rear
Suspension: KW V3 Coilovers

Here’s the new set up on our Scion FRS. The wheels are Flat Black DPT’s 18×8.5/18×9.5 with +44 offset all around wrapped in 225/40/18 and 255/35/18 rubber. This set up is still considered conservative which works perfect and doesn’t rub at all even with the low ride height.

You will also notice the new painted taillights (from RJ’s paint shop in Pleasanton, CA) and our new Stivo trunk spoiler. What do you guys think? :p

WheelDude’s new FRS ….the company’s newest wheel whore :D

We just picked up an FRS for the shop a couple nights ago. Still waiting on some parts like coilovers, badges, reflectors, and couple other little things, but since we have a ton of wheels in the warehouse, we couldn’t help but to remove the ugly stock wheels

Excuse the ride height, we’ll be fixing that next week as soon as the coilovers we’re getting are off back order, KW Variant 3’s.

Farewell 2006 Subaru STi! 18×8.5 +44 Rota Grid in White

Name: The Dude’s
Car: 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Wheels: 18×8.5 Rota Grid - White (5×114.3/e44/73)
Tires: Nexen N3000 255/35/18
Suspension: BC Coilovers

This was one of the very last sets of wheels our 06 STi had on, the 18×8.5 Rota Grid in white. With the color white, you just can’t go wrong, it looks great with EVERY single exterior color. We chose to put on some 255/35/18 tires for the daily drive around town. So with that said, why not put some on your car while we have them in stock? This is also one of the many wheels we have limited sets in stock. Please consider buying ASAP to guaranteeing yourself a set.

Click the link above to buy or give us a call at (510) 651-2956 M-F 10am-5pm.

Dude’s Bugeye WRX on 18×8.5 +44 DPT in Gold

Owner: Dude @ Wheeldude.com
Car: 2002 Subaru WRX
Wheels: 18×8.5 Rota DPT - Gold (5×100/144.3/e44/73)
Suspension: JIC Magic Coilovers

The DPT in this particular size as it’s a direct bolt on for most Subaru applications, it’s for those not wanting to run an aggressive setup while still achieving that concave look! It looks good while being very functional! We only have a few sets left in stock ready for shipment so pick up those phones on Monday morning or purchase them online 24/7 before they’re sold out!
