Default Picture Request: Rota Grid or TE37s on a 2GS3?

Wondering if anyone has any pictures or a photoshop of a black 2GS3 with White Rota Grid or TE37s in 18".

Looking for that concave look and also want to see if 18s would be too small. Can't afford 19s atm so 18s will have to do.

Not sure if this type of style wheel would be good.

Looking at currently Rota Grid 18x9.5 +20 in white. Would make good track wheels though? lol

18" Rota Grid's will look nothing like what Jay's (flat black GS above) wheel setup. His wheel and offset is aggressive which really makes everything come together for that extra P factor.

better off staying with stocks until you can afford what you really want.
please dont put rotas on the GS.

Also another thing to consider, the fitment of the real and fake may be different. Therefore it may look different.

^^ wow they look almost identical!

I'm going to see what the prices are like, I was afraid they were weak offset but pretty bang on!

the offsets are pretty good, the problem I see is that if you're looking for the poke flush look, the 18" will leave u with alot to desire.

so then you mention you wanted track wheels and I for sure would not run Rota's on a track car. Rota's have had all the spokes break right off from the face... its pretty silly to put Rota's on any car you seriously think your going to track. Plus if you're going w/ track wheels I'd imagine you'd want lightweight forged... TE37's would do the trick but I'm in love w/ CE28n's... i believe the 19x9.5 was 19.4lbs while the TE37's were 20.1 lbs... really light for a wheel that size.

well i'm not making a pure race car, just something fun.

as for the rotas breaking off on the spokes, read around the forums and find the truth about them, because it was actually the user of the wheels that made it break off.

the person smashed into a curb going 30-50mph and that's why it broke, i rather have my wheel break then my suspension pieces.

as for the other pictures like the warped wheel, the caliper was to blame since it was loose and you could see the markings on the other side that warped the spokes because of the caliper getting stuck between the spokes.

lots of pictures out there i've all seen, but you gotta look more into it.
