Jake’s Legacy GT on ROTA D2-EX

Jake is another loyal customer of ours and bought a set of RT-5 in 17×9 +42 for his Legacy. If you know anything about these cars they do not have much room for wide wheels, but he manage to stuff these under the wheel arches with a set of 245/40/17. He came back to us for his second set and decided to up his game by going even wider with a set of D2-EX in 18×9.5 +38. These definitely compliment the clean body lines on this Legacy.
