Subscribed. I was so close to buying these wheels. They come in white too and you can get 17x10 +50, 17x9 +42 for ~$800 shipped. Didn't like that they were Rotas though.

I don't care who makes them... Rota, XXR, varosten, whatever name "knock-off company," If they're less than $1200 for a set, i'm definitely in. And, to answer that point, i believe they will be less than that. I saw a square set of 17x10 +50 on ebay for less than $900.

The standard street tire size for these rims are 255/40 square. If you're running a 10" wide rim, you're rolling and pulling - that's a given. High offset gives you a much hard problem to deal with - inner contact with control arms, upper inner wheel wells, and other contact with suspension components. it also makes it much more difficult to clear BBKs.

I think this is the perfect offset for clearing stock OEM fenders, BBK (given the appropriate non-concave spoke design), and inner components.

If they make silver one's I'm buying some. Perfect size too! This might just be exactly what I needed to get excited about the s2k again.

If you're running a 10" wide rim in the REAR, you can get away without rolling anything. Personally I'd love to try a 9" wide rim for the front w/ ~60mm offset and 10" wide rim w/~70mm offset for the rear and running staggered tires. If the wheels were affordable and half decent looking I'd buy them in a heartbeat.
