It’s Hummel’s second time to get featured on our website and he’s coming back strong! Just in case you missed, here’s his old feature. It looks like Hummel is really busy turning his car into a track monster. Just check out those R compound tires on his Gold Rota T2R’s. Last time we heard, Hummel is planning to run a Voltex widebody kit. As if the Kakumei body wasn’t enough. Can’t wait to see this is all done!

Throwback Thursday - Paolo’s Impreza on Gold Rota T2R’s

Owner: Paolo of Wheeldude.com
Car: 2009 Subaru Impreza
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota T2R - Gold (5×100/e38/73)
Tires: 245/40/18
Suspension: BC Racing Coilovers

Here’s a throwback from early 2011 when Paolo used to have the Gold Rota T2R’s on his Impreza hatchback. That concave looks awesome!

Mark’s Toyota 86 on 18×9.5 Gold T2R’s

Owner: Mark
Car: 2012 Toyota 86 GTS
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota T2R - Gold (5×100/e38/73)
Tires: 215/40/18
Suspension: BC Racing Coilovers

This is the real deal Toyota 86 right here. Mark dubbed it “WTF86″ and is the project car of StreetFX located in Australia. This car has only clocked 100 kilometers but it already has some modifications done to it. The first thing you will notice are the wheels. Mark went with a square set of Rota T2R’s in Gold for that awesome look! A set of BC Racing coilovers was also installed to make the great handling even better.

Anna’s 04 WRX on 18×9.5 T2R in Titanium Chrome

Owner: Anna
Car: 2004 Subaru WRX
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota T2R - Titanium Chrome (5×100/e38/56.1)
Suspension: Coilovers

We finally took photos of Anna’s WRX, she is a long time friend to us at Wheeldude. Her car used to have a special edition D2, now she’s rocking the T2R in Titanium Chrome. Excuse the front wheel, brake dust is the one to blame… after a quick wash it was all shiny again. :)

A Part of History - Josh’s STI on Gold Rota T2R’s

The Subaru blue and gold color combination has been around for quite some time now and most of us have memories of watching the Subaru World Rally Team dominating the World Rally Championship. That memory plays a great role for most people when setting up their Subarus today which is the reason why a lot of people run the blue and gold color combination. If you think it is overplayed, wait until you see Josh’s STI.
