Rota RB Rims Fitment Question

Recommended Posts

On 16X8 smashing will not help the cap needs about 20MM longer to fit. I dont know about the 17 inch.

So, one thing I might have missed: without the inner spindle cap, ie. dust cover, which covers the spindle nut and bearing, will your rota center cap fit? If so, the wheel center cap should suffice to keep the spindle nut and the outer bearing clean. We always kept some grease in the dust cap, so it might still be a good idea, even though you probably don't want grease in it. Any chance you could post a photo of the front wheel mounted, showing the spindle bolt sticking out? Sorry to bother; it's an interesting problem. It sounds like the mounting plate of the wheel is thinner on the 8" wheel than on the 7", if that makes sense. In that case, a wheel spacer should make up the difference, but that essentially changes the offset of the front wheels. Yet, you said you had tried a spacer. It sounds like they've made one wheel for the front and a different wheel for the back, the mounting surfaces being of different thicknesses. If that's true, I wonder why rota doesn't describe this difference. Specs of each wheel would be nice. Good luck!

So this is what I got now. RBR 16X8 +10 with Hankook V12 225/50 rear. RB 16X7 +4 with 205/55 front ... No spacers and the center cap fits with no problems. To all

RBR 16X8 center cap will not fit ... Hope the picture will help.

Glad you got it worked out, and thanks for the update. Your z looks nice! Now maybe you can get back to enjoying the ride! I like your stagger sizes. Come back with your impressions of the tires, the ride, etc. thanks.

Galban:

That's a nice looking setup. Is your motor out? The front looks a little high. What did you do with the flairs? The front certainly isn't stock with the integrated mud flap. I really like it.

Reviving this thread as I have run into the center cap issue on the front of my Rota wheels not clearing the hub. Rear fits fine. Check out the pics and let me know if anyone has found a true solution. Tap it flat?
