Arthur’s Track Monster - STI on 18×10 Rota DPTs

Owner: Arthur Lam
Car: 2007 SWP Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Wheels: 18×10 Rota DPT - Gloss Black(5×100/114.3/e35/73)
Tires: 275/35/18 Continental Slicks
Suspension: RCE Tarmac 2 Coilovers
Nasioc Build thread: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2190223

Arthur, better known as alcoolaid on the forums, bought his STI back in August of 2007. He started modding it within the first few weeks of owning the car and he found himself running stage 2 in no time. After trying out the car in Auto-X and some track days, the track bug caught Arthur and the rest was history. Arthur has spent countless hours working on his car and we must say that this is one of the most awesome builds we’ve ever seen.

Arthur and some of his friends from APL motorsports recently attended a track day at Pacific Raceways. Matt Kwok took some nice photos at the event and it is a pleasure to have them on our site.

Some action shots.

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!

Griever’s Black on Black EvoX on 19×10.5 Grids

Owner: Griever of Evolutionm.net
Car: 2009 Mitsubishi Evolution X
Wheels: 19×10.5 Rota Grid - Flat Black (5×114.3/e15/73)
Tires: 275/30/19
Suspension: H&R Lowering Springs

The Rota Grids are getting love all the way from Dubai. Griever posted pictures of his new set up on evolutionm.net and his car certainly got a lot of internet props. (Evolutionm thread here.) Griever special ordered these wheels because he wanted something aggressive for his Evo. In case you didn’t know, we can break up staggered sets as per customer requests.

Griever’s EvoX is rocking the 19×10.5 +15 Rota Grids in Flat Black which are wrapped in 275/30/19 tires. He is currently on lowering springs but coilovers are currently on order. We should expect more pics as soon as he has the coilovers installed. Watch out for that!




John’s 2006 WRX on Flat Black Rota Boost 2

Owner: John
Car: 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota Boost 2 - Flat Black (5×100/e35/73)
Tires: 245/35/18
Suspension: BC BR Extreme Low Coilovers

As soon as we saw John’s car on the forums, we knew we had to see more of that aggressive WRX.

The Rota Boost 2’s huge lip sets it apart from all the other Rota wheel styles. For those of you looking for the biggest lip without going too crazy on the wheel width, this one’s for you.
