Over here at Wheeldude.com, we appreciate all kinds of set ups done to cars - from time attack cars to street cars, all the way to slammed cars on coilovers.

Slamming a car has never made the Rota DPT’s look so good. Not to mention, a fresh body style to showcase these timeless wheels.

- 3 inch down pipe
- SPT catback exhaust

Andrew’s Evo8 on Flat Black DPT’s

Owner: Andrew C.
Car: 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 8
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota DPT - Flat Black (5×100x114.3/e22/73)
Tires: 245/40/18 Hankook RS3
Suspension: Tanabe GF210

Gotta love black on black! Andrew’s car may seem simple but there’s something about it that makes you take a second look. Here’s what Andrew has to say,”Perfect offset, lightweight, best and only rims I will own! I’d like to thank Wheeldude for always taking care of all my questions and purchases. I would like to thank Dev from Speed Element for helping with my evo over the years!”

Throwback Thursday - Jesse’s Evo on 18×9.5 +22 White DPT’s

Owner: Jesse
Car: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX RS
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota DPT - White (5×100×114.3/e22/73)
Tires: 265/35/18
Suspension: JIC FLT-A2s

We posted this Evo not too long ago but since we’ve been posting a lot of Subarus and BMWs for Throwback Thursday, we figured we’d give it some variety.

Jesse had the perfect wheel/tire setup for that extra traction on the track which helped him grab the 2nd overall spot in the Modified AWD class at the Speed Ventures Time Attack series.

Nick’s PSM Bugeye on White 18×9.5 DPT’s

Owner: Nick(wrxspeed56 on Nasioc)
Car: 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota DPT - White (5×100x114.3/e22/73)
Tires: 255/35/18 Falken 452
Suspension: BC Racing BR Series Coilovers
Other: Subaru OEM lip kit, 04 STI brembos, JDM Grill and Scoop, Stage 2 performance mods, leather interior

If you’ve been spending time on Nasioc lately, it is very likely that you’ve seen this car posted somewhere. Who wouldn’t notice this super clean Bugeye? The OEM lip, the side skirt strakes, the rear spats and diffuser just flow together perfectly. Finish it off with those aggressive White DPT’s, then you have a perfect Bugeye!

We all know that White wheels are a b%$#@ to keep clean but once you get all that brake dust off, it is definitely worth it.

Throwback Thursday - Pakman’s E90 on Satin Black Linea Corse LC818s

Customer: Alex
Car: 2006 BMW 330i
Wheels: Linea Corse LC818 19×8.5 +30, 19×10 +22 - Satin Black

This was way back when Pakman had a different set of wheels each month. He was rolling on a set of M3 fitment LC818s on his car. The set up required fender rolling and a little stretch on the tires to make the +22 rears to fit. This is easily one of our favorite set ups on Pak’s car!

Throwback Thursday - Mike’s Evo X on White DPT’s

Owner: Mike
Car: 2008 Mitsubishi Evolution X
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota DPT - White (5×100×114.3/e22/73)
Tires: 265/35/18

Back in 2009, the 18×9.5 fitment Rota DPT was just starting to gain popularity. Here are some pictures of Mike’s WW Evo X on White 18×9.5 +22 DPTs. So simple but the color scheme works out really well. Enjoy!

More pictures can be found here.

Jesse’s Time Attack Evo on White 18×9.5 +22 Rota DPT

Owner: Jesse
Car: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX RS
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota DPT - White (5×100x114.3/e22/73)
Tires: 265/35/18
Suspension: JIC FLT-A2s

We are very excited for this since this is only the first part of a double feature. This beautiful Evo used to be Jesse’s daily driver/time attack car. Jesse was successful in his last year’s quest at Speed Ventures Time Attack series and was able to place 2nd overall in Modified AWD. This is definitely not your average friendly neighborhood winged Evo. Sadly, Jesse had to let this one go but don’t worry, the second part of this feature will be all about his new project car. Stay tuned!

Brendan’s 2011 WRX Sedan on 18×9.5 +22 DPT’s

Owner: Brendan
Car: 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota DPT - Hyper Black (5×100x114.3/e22/73)
Tires: 225/40/18
Suspension: BC BR Extreme Low Kit

The moment we saw this car posted on the forums, our jaws dropped in awe. It’s not everyday that you see a new car rocking some really aggressive wheels. Props to Brendan for taking it to another level by making the 18×9.5 +22 DPT’s fit on his car.

For those of you wondering, the front and rear fenders on this car are rolled to make way for the low offset wheels. The fender work was done by Son Vo. Hit him up for great fender work!

Brendan tells us that he is happy with the way the car sits now but it’s not the set up he is looking for. This car will be back with some meaty tires. Definitely watch out for that!

We can’t wait to see more of these new body Imprezas. They definitely have great potential in the “looks” department.

Thanks to Brendan Bannister Photography for the nice pictures.

con10der8’s Bugeye on 18×9.5 +22 Flat Black DPT’s

Owner: con10der8 on nasioc
Car: 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX
Wheels: Rota DPT 18×9.5 5×100/5×114.3 +22 73hb Flat Black
Tires: 255/35/18 Bridgestone RE01 RFT
Suspension: Helix DNA Coilovers

We’ve kept you waiting for too long and it’s time to show you con10der8’s aggressive bugeye. Just in case you didn’t know, the 18×9.5 +22 DPT’s were originally made for the Evos. Things change and so does wheel fitment. A normal Subaru would need to run stretched tires for this particular set of wheels to fit. Con10der8 still wanted to have the functionality of his car and decided to run meaty tires. Just in case you were wondering, this car only has -2 front and -1 rear camber. A little roll and pull helped con10der8 fit these on his car. Scroll down to see more of this angry bugeye.
