Speaking of 10" wheels, I just imported these. Hayashi Streets in Mini specific archless specs.

I've got another set of special 3 piece 10" SSRs coming in from Japan and they should be here by mid-August.

Sooo. Since we're talking about 10's... has anyone ever built their own wheel fit tool? None of the existing wheel fit tools will measure down to a 10" wheel. I'm probably going to make one similar to the "wheelrite" tool, but for my car specifically and basically just to measure mini specs with 10's. I just can't decide if I like the wheelrite model that has the little coat hanger to represent the tires, or if I want to actually buy the tires and then make up a jig that allows me to hold/stretch the tires and fit them at different offsets/wheel widths.

Hmmm.... decisions...

That depends on your definition of both terms. I'd guess they are not "cheap" quality or price-wise, but are probably worth it on both counts. Contact them for pricing: http://www.minijcwteam.com/news/arti...r-works-car-37

Can you guys help me out? I know very little about quality of wheel brands other than a few name brands. I currently have BBS stockers on my STi and I'm looking for a change. I know what I want, but not what brands to stay away from.

This is around what I'm looking for:
18x9 or 9.5 with ~30 offset 5x114.3

Thanks guys

Are those the ones you're asking about? Wheeldude used to be a Rota salesman...is that what they are? If so, they're garbage. Don't buy Rotas.
