The 18×9 Rota Grid e42 setup puts the wheel right at the fender line. It doesn’t poke like the 18×9.5 e38 setup. You can also run 235/40/18, 245/40/18 or 255/35/18 tires.

It’s been a while since we last mounted up some wheels on our Bugeye. Yes we’ve put on RT5’s on it before but not the 18×8.5’s. This should be a nice conservative setup for those not looking to roll your fenders.

First up, we have the classic Blue and Gold color combo.

The next one we have here is the sporty yet clean looking combo. Running shoes, anyone?
