the 17"s are still around, i think

im a 18" wheel hoor now lol...after running my current JIC Jforce 5s on my s13 in 18x9.5...i never wanna touch 17s again

only reason i ask is cause i need a set of track wheels (until i can finally order my front 2 SSR MS1s to match the back pair i have...then the JICs turn into my track hoors)

If you are on the budget, get the Rota Grids 18x9.5 +15

Wait, what?

I just checked their site.

Weapons are still sold in 18x9 +15 on the site.

Battles don't even have 18x9.5 in any offset listed anymore on the site.

ive tried getting the battles in 18x9.5 +15 but they are always in backorder with no date of when they will get back... im about to order some 17s even if i wanted 18s... already tried a bunch of places to see if they had any lying around... the only 18s around are x8 with +20 or something offset...

I'm thinking about running 17s for the track now... Feddy 595s' price tag in 235/40/17 is oh so tasty.

so what's the deal on those Grids? Are they new or am I just out of the loop?

What's the down side on those; heavy?

the downside = shitty rotas.

upside = cheap and decent sizes

alongside = if u have a nice car buy nice wheels - if u have a dented up beat car get cheaper still proper fitting wheels.

not even close.

grid = te37 knockoff
battles/cst/boyz (to a lesser extent) = Advan T7 knockoffs

If that's a 9.5", it's prob a 235/245 stagger.
