Random snap: Nissan S14a x 18x11in Rota MXR

February 06, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Readers Rides

Here at Rota we produce a wide range of wheels for the Nissan S14a guaranteed to give a perfect fitment without modification. However, we also produce some seriously aggressive widths and offsets such as the 18x11in Rota MXR pictured below, and despite the need for overfenders we’ve got to admit they look absolutely badass once fitted!

Kurt Blackie’s R32 Skyline @ D1NZ

We are LOVING this awesome Skyline posted by the guys at Rota Wheels NZ! Owned and built by Kurt Blackie it runs out 17×9.5in ET -19 Rota RB-X all round for a seriously aggressive fitment and a perfect hard-parked stance too. Love the job mate, keep up the good work! Also cheers for repping the Rota stickers all over, you’re a legend! Photo credit to Fazyluck

VW Corrado x 15in Rota Aleica

November 29, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Readers Rides

We’ve got a LOT of time for cool Volkswagens here at Rota Wheels.  Very few scenes have such importance focused around the wheels, and it’s the main reason why we’ve introduced a massive range of VAG-fitment wheels in the past few years. One great example of this is the stunning Corrado you see pictured below running our 15in Aleica wheel – a proper JDM-inspired wheel which looks just at home on this Euro hatch! Check out the full shoot from photographer Tinners478 on his FlickR page here:

Driftworks R32 – Release the evil!

November 21, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Builds, Readers Rides

It seems the guys over at Driftworks are absolutley loving the new Rota MXR, and it’s not hard to see why given how good they look on just about anything! The ‘back up’ R32 drift car has always been overshadowed by its big brother, the Driftworks S15, but with that now sold it’s time for this Toyota-powered monster to shine once again! Check out what Phil Morrison had to say about getting this monster back on the road.

Wheeldude’s 2002 Subaru WRX

October 09, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Readers Rides

Imprezas aren’t always the easiest cars to fit wide, aggressive wheels to, so it’s always awesome to see one breaking the norm especially using Rota wheels in the process! As the North American distributor for Rota, are constantly changing the setup on their 2002 WRX (as you’d expect) and we absolutely LOVE the latest guise. Gallery

BMW M Coupe x Rota Torque Drift

September 04, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Readers Rides

This is what we love about Facebook and social media – being able to talk to you guys directly and see exactly where our wheels are going! Yesterday we received a message from Ryan Botton who owns this sweet BMW M Coupe pictured below. The M Coupe is a properly unique car, running the straight-six from the M3 in a shorter and lighter chassis making it a proper little handful!

Update: Ed Coley’s S14 drift car

September 03, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Readers Rides

If you follow the Rota Wheels Facebook, you’ll know that we’re BIG fans of Ed Coley’s ‘instant lifestyler’ S14. Sitting pretty on staggered Rota Grids, Ed’s played around with a few different sizes and finishes including bright yellow and matt black, and it always looks killer on his Vertex-kitted bodywork.

Readers ride: Phillip Babb’s Nissan S14a

July 25, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Readers Rides

It’s good to see so many of you Rota fans getting involved in the action over on our Facebook page, including Phillip Babb’s freshly-resprayed Nissan S14a. Running 50mm Origin overfenders alongside a Monkey Magic bodykit, Phillip’s opted for a set of staggered Rota MXRs (18×10 ET8 up front, 18×11 ET8 on the rear) finished with a custom gold centre which looks fantastic, especially contrasted against the Thunder Blue body colour.

Vince Knight’s EK Civic

July 24, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Readers Rides

We do love the Honda community – especially when there’s still so many awesome Civics being modified year after year like Vince Knight’s EK Civic. This matt-black monster looks super tough sitting on Rota Grids, unusually packing a staggered 15in up front and 16in on the rear setup. Oh and how cool is the front splitter/canards setup! If you want to see more of this, check out his facebook page – looking good Vince!
