    So looking for wheels for the racekor because I'm going to need tires soon and I figure why not upgrade the wheels because I hate how the factory wheels look.

    Looking at these three:

    Rota Titan


    Gramlight 57DR


    Enkei RPF1



    I want my wheel size to be no bigger or no smaller than 17x9. So far I'm leaning towards the Rota because cost and availability. I am leaning towards a +35 to 38. I know this will require a slight roll of the rear fender, which isn't a big deal for me. Thoughts?

    like the rota titans
    sure theyre not as good quality as the enkeis or gramlights but i just like em better and sure youre not concerned about the weight that much...itll be lighter on the wallet at least
    like the enkeis better than the gram light. i see alot of people with that spoke style

    ^^yes i copied and pasted from chat...not sure if u read it in chat or not.

    Out of these 3 wheels the Enkeis are the lightest followed by the Rotas which are 17-18 lbs followed by the Gramlights which are around 23 lbs.

    I like the look of the Rotas the best, actually. I have the RPF1s as my winter wheels. They actually aren't my first choice, but I got a good deal on them.

    The Gramlights I am not a fan of, personally.

    Looks wise I'd go for the Rotas. They also seem to be the middle road weight wise.

    Yeah,not a fan of the Gramlights.

    I'd also look into which has the best resale value if you choose to sell later on.

    Rotas probably have the worst resale value. Gramlights probably have the highest because "Rays". I like the Titans enough that if I bought another set of wheels in the future I'd keep them. After researching Rota it seems a lot of Time Attack Cars use them (TiC, LiC Motorspots, etc). All I'm doing is driving on flat roads so I don't think it will be an issue.

    I actually like the Titans.

    Funny how a wheel poised on being "light" is the heaviest.

    Here is my alignment that I got after I put the RCEs and Konis on. I got it done at Ernie Bello Motorsports in WPB if anyone needs an alignment in South Florida they do good work and are really good people.

    Never have hit anything but maybe a pothole which I doubt would do anything. I'm assuming it was from the drop.

    unless it was a huge pothole and you hit it at lightspeed...or multiple pot holes it wouldnt be off that much.
    i can see the drop doing it though

    What about oz allegeritas? Look like those rotas (which im assuming are based off the OZ's), probably lighter, stronger, you dont have to say you have rotas, look awesome. Expensive though, i forget what sizes they are but i found them in 17x9 somewhere wen i was looking.

    I can't find OZ wheels in 17x9 5x100. The Rotas are based off the Wedsport TC105N which are like 2k after shipping and silver (yuck).
