The forgotten Mitsubishi?

September 06, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Uncategorized

When you think of performance Mitsubishis you cant help but think of the Evolution model. But as any Japanese car fan will tell you, the hallowed Evo started its life as the much more subtle Lancer – right up until the latest (and last) Evo X model. Sure it may not have the 300bhp turbocharged engine, but as you can see from the Lancer below they look properly cool on a decent set of wheels (19in Rota Grid Drifts) and a decent amount of lowering. What do you think? Let us know on wheels@rarerims.co.uk

INTRODUCING: 18in Rota Rundfahren RM200

September 06, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Uncategorized

It’s safe to say the ‘Rundfahren’ range of Rota Wheels is definitely causing a stir, and our latest wheel (specifically designed for Euro cars) is even wilder than the first! The Rundfahren RM200 features a smooth concave centre matched with a classic turbo fan-inspired outer lip for a properly unique look! Sizes available including 18x9in 5×120 (ET40) and 18×9.5in 5×100 (ET23) – both are finished in white and as you can see below it looks insane.

How? Well believe it or not the Volvo C30 shares a lot of similar parts with the Focus ST, including the 5-cylinder turbocharged engine and 5×108 hubs! With a bit of measuring and the right tyre size, the Ford-fitment 18in Grids bolted up to the Volvo with no issues at all!

Monday morning Supra love…

July 08, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Uncategorized

We’ve always got time for the Toyota Supra here at Rota Wheels. With monster arches that easily swallow 18in wheels and allow a staggered fitment as standard, it’s the perfect car for a wheel upgrade from Rota! Undoubtedly one of the most-popular is the Grid Drift, a super-clean 6-spoke design available from 15x7in right up to 19×10.5in! This example below runs our 18x9in and 18x10in setup for an aggressive yet useable staggered setup – what do you think?

Over the years Rota has built up a huge wheel range focused towards the Japanese style and fitment, but in 2013 an entirely new wheel design has been produced specifically for those VW and Euro markets – the 18in Rota RM100.

Put simply, the RM100 combines all the best design aspects of a super-cool Euro wheel backed with Rota’s superb value and quality. Read more…

We’re HUGELY excited to be launching one of the freshest wheel designs we’ve EVER made this month – the Rota RM100.
