GALLERY: Joe Karlton’s Impreza STI on 18×11 Rota MXRs

January 03, 2014 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Uncategorized

When we launched the Rota MXR last year, there was one stand-out car that definitely showcased this super-wide design better than anything else – Joe Karlton’s Impreza STI. From Facebook and Twitter to Tumblr and Instagram, pictures of Joe’s crazy STI sitting on 18x11in ET20 MXRs appeared everywhere, and it’s not hard to see why! Sure it may not keep the Subaru purists happy, but seriously, how aggressive does this motor look?! We LOVE it!

Forester brothers

Rota is hugely proud to stock and produce a wide range of Subaru-fitment 5×100 wheels, but while the 4-door Impreza is the most obvious choice to be upgraded it’s not the only model which can benefit greatly from a proper set of rims! Check out this pair of Foresters below running 18in versions of our T2R and Grid Drift wheels – how cool do they look? Still all-wheel-drive, still turbocharged and even cheaper than the Impreza! If only fuel was cheaper…

We produce a wide range of deep-dish, 4×100 fitment wheels suitable including the Grid-V (pictured right) and Zero Plus (pictured left).

We’re constantly expanding our VAG range of Rota wheels, and one of the latest designs now suitable is the 18in MXR. This super-cool wheel is available in both 5×100 and 5×112 fitments making it a perfect addition for models including the Mk4 & Mk5 Golf GTI.

Random snap: GTR-D equipped 3-series

How awesome does this look! It’s great to see more BMWs running Rota wheels, and this is one of the first E90 3-series we’ve seen running our 18in GTR-D! The serious lows and flared fenders definitely help pull off this ultra-aggressive look, and with early models available for just a few thousand quid it’s got to be a tempting daily, right?
