Tom’s 2010 Subaru STi SE on 18×9.5 Rota Grid Wheels in White

Owner: Tom
Car: 2010 Subaru STi SE
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota Grid - White (5×114.3/e38/73) (5mm spacer on the front)
Tires: Hankook V12 255/35/18
Suspension: BC Racing BR Coilovers

It’s not everyday someone trades in a Mercedes Benz C63 AMG for an STi. Tom believes he has more fun with the STi and there is no doubt about it, just take a look at his mods list below.

Here’s what Tom had to say about the wheels & it’s durability.
“I love the wheels. I have had them for a year and to date I haven’t found a better looking wheel for the gr STi. I daily drive the car every day and track it on both road course and drag strip.

The white really sets off the color of the car and I think anyone with a dark car should consider white wheels! They only need cleaning 1-2 times a week so completely manageable.”

Subie Wagon on 18×9.5 +38 Rota Grid Wheels in Hyper Black

Owner: itsbreal
Car: 2003 Subaru WRX Wagon
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota Grid - Hyper Black (5×100/e38/56.1)
Tires: 245/40/18 Kumho Ecsta SPT

One of our top sellers for the Subaru owners is the 18×9.5 Grids in Hyper Black. It’s a fabulous looking wheel and can go with any color car. The 9.5 width goes well with the +38 offset as it gives the car a nice overall stance.

Advan Neova Tires on 18×9.5″ Rota Grid Wheels - Matte Bronze

Here’s some little quickie shots of some 265/35/18 Advan Neova tires mounted on these wheels! What car will these go on? Well, you’ll see eventually.

Alexander’s Evo 8 on 18×9.5″ Rota Grid Wheels - Yamaha Black

Customer: Alexander Nieves
Car: 2003 Mitsubishi Evo 8
Wheels: Rota Grid 18×9.5 +20 - Yamaha Black

Very aggressive setup for earlier Evos! Normally this setup doesn’t play nice with stock fenders, so some fender rolling and camber adjustments make this work. Judging by the exterior, I’d say Alexander’s Evo 8 is ready to hit the track.

Ryan’s Evo X on 18×9.5″ Rota Grid - Flat Gunmetallic

Customer: Ryan Thomas
Car: 2008 Evo X
Wheels: Rota Grid 18×9.5 +20 - Flat Gun Metal

Ryan’s Evo X on the flat gunmetallic Rota Grids looks really dope with that stance. Very good fitment and height.
