Maybe I missed it but I have been researching this all week... I understand the bore on the front hub is larger than the rear - but I also know that hubcentric rings ARE needed. I have had rota wheels on my miata and my civic si prior to the s2000, and those both had hubcentric rings so that the wheels would mount centered onto the hub correctly. What size do we need (outer and inner od)? And for you guys running the grids, did you just buy four 17"x9" wheels & have the fronts bored to fit the front hub or did they fit just fine w/ hubcentric rings? Lastly should I be concerned about my VSA going ballistic if I have four tires all the same size? From what I have understood it shouldnt be but I just want to get everything straight before I start forking money over for anything. I also assume I can just swap over the tpms from the 08 stock wheels to the rotas. Lastly, my car is bone stock as of now - will 255/40/17s look right up front? I honestly like the idea of rotating my tires if I have them all the same size.

Your Suzuka is hot by the way :).


I can answer a few of your questions. I bought 4 17x9 rota grids from eBay. The center bore of the grids are 73.1. This is like this so it can fit a variety of vehicles and not just the s2000. I only have centric rings on the back of my car od:73 mm to id:64.1 mm. You should be fine running 255/40/17. I went with 245/40/17 on mine. I like the look of it better.

Oh and for the front rings you would need 73 to 70.1 or 70.3

Go to 949 racing they have rings for the 6ulr wheels which are 73.1. I used the exact rings with My Rotas. They have front and rear get two of each. They are aluminum not plastic so they will last, and 3 or 4 dollars a piece. You cant beat that.

In fact heres the link

Im not using any hub rings. You dont technically NEED them, its just so they align right but if your lugs are tightened down properly, your fine. You can rock 255/40s just depends on the offset of the wheel. Are you lowered?

And thanks :tipwink:

ive been looking at some rotas but dont really want to mess with the suspension or have to roll the fenders...

you are correct. 17x9 +42 on stock suspension. And you can still lower your car without rolling your fenders. How much is the question though.

^ With any spacer over 3mm it is strongly recommended you get extended studs and lugs because you cannot get enough.turns on stock lugs. And really, do you need that extra 5mm anyway? Lets hope your new wheels dont fall off and kill someone in the process. Good luck.
