Variety is the spice of life… right? Here at Rota we offer a wide range of wheel finishes to suit just about all styles and trends, but as you’d expect there’s still plenty of car enthusiasts who want to do things a little more custom! One of the best we’ve seen is this Mk2 Toyota MR2 spotted over at Rota Wheels Australia, opting for custom-painted inner barrels (colour coded to the car) along with wheel dimensions and make.

Simple, Clean, Aggressive!

It’s (almost) impossible not to love the Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R. This was the original ‘Godzilla’, packing a 276bhp twin-turbo RB26 engine and a sophisticated four-wheel-drive system which literally set it worlds apart from its German and Italian rivals! Even 25-years after its launch the R32 GT-R still looks awesome when modified right, as this example below from Hyper Drive in New Zealand demonstrates perfectly sitting on 18in Rota RT5s.

Blast from the past: Paul McLaughlin’s Mk6 Golf

March 17, 2014 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Euro

Back in 2011 Irishman Paul McLaughlin blew our minds with his awesome Mk6 Golf pictured below, sitting inch-perfect on 18in Grid Drift wheels! It’s pretty common to see super-cool VAG motors running Rotas in 2014, but Paul’s Golf was one of the first to blend the aggressive Japanese-style fitment and design with the smooth VW exterior. Even by today’s standards this Mk6 Golf looks seriously fresh, and with the Mk7 Golf now being modified it’s about time we saw an updated version eh?

Wheeldude.com Bugeye Impreza x Rundfahren RM200

March 11, 2014 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Uncategorized

Back in 2013 Rota introduced its Rundfahren range – a set of wheels designed with Euro/VAG models in mind including the hugely-popular Mk4 Golf. But that doesn’t mean these wheels are ONLY suitable for a select few cars, something Wheeldude.com has proven with their Bugeye Subaru Impreza!

Sitting on 18×9.5in 5×100 RM200s (featuring a machined finish) the Wheeldude.com Subaru Bugeye looks seriously cool especially for such a wild wheel design. Thanks to the +38 offset and 235/40/18 tyres zero arch work has been required for fitment, allowing the RM200s to tuck within the standard flared arches with ease for a killer stance.

What do you think? It’s definitely one to divide opinions, but we’re loving the Jap/Euro switchup happening right now with VW models running classic designs including the Grid Drift and JDM models like the Impreza on our Euro series of wheels.

Serious amounts of work has been put into the bodywork which features 4in wider arches (hand built from steel!) along with wider steel side skirts, stretched M-Tech 2 bumpers and a good ol’ Renault Laguna splitter.
