Dont get defensive when you come into a performance oriented forum and start talking stance. Yes there is a small section (this specific thread alone) that relates to "AGGRESSIVE OFFSET" but this is mostly for folks like myself who are into Form+function. And lets be honest, your sig is the perfect example of a cheap build.

You have rapeland coils, and rotas. You driving on Rotas alone make your car unsafe, not to add in the extra fail of tire choice.

If your so into "stance" and safety, then do you remember the Minty Fresh 350z from the west coast? He royally fucked that car from a pothole/blowout combo. The car was totalled.

nuffsaid
So basically he is a cock sucker!

well I read the last 2pages of BS... that was nice.

I discovered my BC pass.side adjustment knob broke.. =0(
o well.. only fix is a new assembly $95 ... I'm considering selling my forged 3pc volk wheels.. & attempting to put something even bigger on.. hah..

I have some OLD Racing Hart j5 wheels.. that I got off a kid w/ a Z, they kind of don't fit. hahaha -- could be considered Mexi-poke.. hahahe

Although Ive been into stance for over 4yrs.. I had the 1st car on mazda3forums w/ staggered wheels.."fitted"... @ this point I only do it for fun.
My mazda is NOT my daily driver anymore.. she is an experiment...

hah..

I really don't care what people do to their cars.. it's their money.. You buy cheap crap.. then don't complain when it breaks, & your car wrecks... Even Used Mid-High quality stuff is better then New Low end crap.
@ some point.. some1 w/ there H&R, or K&W, or BC's... is going to want to go back to stock & trade in their car for a zo6(hah).... & @ that point.. Buy their stuff.. it may need to be re-valved...or have parts replaced... BUT the quality/craftsmanship is proven... So instead of paying $470 for Raceland NEW crap... u paid $500 for some used quality parts.

I've purchased my fair share of used parts... But from being in the car/truck game for so long... I've had lifted trucks, & lowered cars... I know. It's all about the quality of stuff you buy.

========

Okay.. Now can we please get this thread back on track.

here are the Racing Hart J5 wheels I bought on the Z...

You get what you pay for, Rotas are cheap and have that shitty quality name for a reason.

You may be surprised to know they have the same structural integrity as Enkei and other high volume OEM suppliers. Not surprising since most automotive manufactures have stringent requirements. Same casting process. Same raw materials. Same QA compliance.

The big difference is labor. Philippines is cheap. Japan is not.

What Design said here and earlier about the quality of rotas is true. Question on Durability of ROTA Wheels? | CustomPinoyRides.com - Pinoy Pride In Our Rides!
Ignore the site its on, it was posted all over the internet on legitimate sites like v2labs and stanceworks/stancenation. They are not the shitty wheels they were even five years ago.
back onto the quality parts topic. I absolutely would jump on a set of quality coilovers if they showed up on the forums. The problem is that I am on a student budget and do not always have $800 available to drop on car parts. Plus the coils that I want (BC Extreme Drop Package) never come up for sale on these forums, and are rare at best on mazdafitment. As soon as I am done with my fmic/downpipe I will be saving to get off of these ricelands, because I don't like them as much as you guys dont, I just wanted a cheap way to get low until I could afford real coilovers.

@ericdebruyn1 It doesnt matter what fucking kind of wheels they are, nor what suspension you are running. What determines whether or not they fit is the bolt pattern and the center bore. For fucks sake people...

I've seen people make +20's fit. That being said it takes A LOT of work. I have +30's and I'm going back and forth about whether I'm willing to do what it takes to make them fit. I've also only seen 215's used. The one guy was running 215 35's IIRC.

I have no idea, nor does anyone else know how it will look/fit w/ your drop..
why ask, just try them out....

next time just use this site ... Online Wheel & Tyre Fitment calculator. Offset, Tyre stretch and Rolling Radius calculator ... instead of setting yourself up to get flamed...

a lil research goes a long way.

Get some pics when you have a chance. I'd like to see a down the side of the car shot. I can't imagine 10mm more out than mine.

Looks good. I'm ordering my suspension tomorrow so I'll be seeing how much it takes to get my 18x9 +30's under the car. I have a roll/pull in the rear. Hopefully it's enough.

Man...a lot of shit talking has gone down in this thread since I last visited lol. But for real, Racelands were built cheap. You can cut the dead coil, remove the locking collar, do some other stupid shit that makes your car a hazard to everyone in and around it. But you shouldnt do any of that.

The time you spend doing that is time you could spend at work making money for real coilovers.

How can people constantly get those confused with evo wheels? Yes they are multi spoke wheels, but they dont really look that much alike at all.
