Comments about the set up: Rear fenders rolled and pulled. Front and rear wheel gap about 1.5 fingers between fender and tire.

It’s always nice to see some Rota love from all over the world. On our next customer feature is Rodney who is all the way from Switzerland. His daily driven STI is rocking 18×9 Rota G-Forces wrapped in some sticky Yokohama Advan Neova rubber. His wheel set up is perfect for Rodney since handling is something that he wants to improve on his STI.

Rich’s STI is back, still stuffing those meaty tires. Rich changed things up a little bit by painting the wheels Gold, a color that was never released for the SVN-R. He told us that he spent 10 hours prepping and painting the wheels. We say it was worth it!

Here’s Rich’s feature from a couple of months back:
