    I use the stock BBS for my summers with the stock Dunlops still, though after the track day I did they're going to need replacement pretty darn soon.

    For my winters, I have Enkeis Imolas in 18" from Tire Rack with Dunlop Winter Sport M3 tires in 245/40?

    DylTayVB,

    Are you running the stock suspension with the 9.5" wide Rotas?

    I like the 17" Rota G-Force Wheels:
    Product Details:
    Wheel Style - Rota G-Force
    Wheel Diameter (Inches) - 17"
    Wheel Width (Inches) - 8"
    PCD Bolt Pattern - 5x100
    Offset - +48mm
    Hub Bore - 56.1mm

    Anyone running these on a 11-12'? Was wondering if they are simply a bolt on or if you have to offset?

    Any fitment issues with the 255's? I'm getting the same wheel but with a 265 tire and in Titanium chrome.

    You won't have fitment issues with the 255/265 or 275.

    I am running a +38 offset with 275s. Car needs a slight rear fender roll.

    Ok. I'm trying to get all the opinions I can. I spoke to two shops in my area who seem to think pulling would be involved, and almost sounded hesitant to attempt it. And then I have people tell me there will only be a slight roll in the rear. I'd like to get the roll done before the wheels arrive in March.

    I'm running RCE Yellows and bilstein shocks with Rota G force 18x9 et35 on 245/35/18 and I don't have any rubbing issues at all (fenders are not rolled).

    I am looking to go to 255/35/18 once these tires are done. Might require a slight roll in the rear but nothing I'm worried about.
