Rota g force 5x100 looking to buy

Looking to buy a set of rota g forces Any color. Either 17x7.5 or 17x8 bolt pattern 5x100. Doesn't matter the color because I'm going to powder coat them white. Let me know if anyone had a set there willing to sell ill pay shipping of I have to. Just the rims no tires.

Did you post a WTB on NASIOC or ClubWRX.net? Might net better results over there.

What's everyone's opinion on the g force or the grid in gunmetal? 17x8

Boost isn't bad, but i'm partial to 5 and 6 spoke.

Grid comes in white it seems.

The problem with the one 8k miles away is there 5x110. I think I'm gonna get the 17x7.5 gunmetal grids. Keep them the way they are for awhile and once I get bored with them get the rims powder coated white. Place around me does powder coating 60 a wheel is that reasonable?

Since you're set on white, you should go with the one that has less spokes.

Grid > G Force

6 spokes per wheel > 10 spokes per wheel

24 spokes per cleaning sesh > 40 spokes per cleaning sesh

Thank me later

Yeah I'm going with 17x8 grid in gun metal. Like the idea of less spokes equals easier cleaning. Going with gunmetal then get them
Powder coated later down the road

Whatever you do, don't get super sticky tires. Sticky is ok.... just no Azenis, Star Specs, etc....

Your tranny will thank you
