I though you did . Cause the hub bore on the rota grids are 73.1. The hub size on the front of our car is 70.3 and the rear is 64.1? Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I just did some reading and alot of guys aren't using them on aftermarket wheels because the aftermarket lugs will help center the wheels .

Rings just make mounting easier. Not better or stronger, just easier.

Let's also not turn this into a bash rota thread. Lots of big name Subaru Time attack teams having been using them with lots of success.

^ Yep. The AFI turbo S2000 on here was running them. I have seen various drift cars with very nice engine builds etc still run Rotas. They may not be the lightest but probably are pretty solid.
What mods do I have done to my S2000? Just click here! --> http://www.fullymodded.com/

Centering rings move the load off the studs and onto the wheel hub.

I WAS slammed on coilovers but not anymore with these bad boys. I had to raise it up to make them fit for now. Still gotta do my rear bumper tab next weekend ( barely rubs as it sits now with one finger gap) and then ill dial in some camber and get the fenders semi flush with the tires and call it a day :thumbup:
