They are not Rotas. I'm going to put the Rays Engineering-Volk time attack decals on them though :finga:

I'm running 215 45 16.

Looking good! If the car is lowered, those are gonna rub real bad in the back. I just rolled my fenders and problem solved.

When rolling your fenders, get them done with professional equipment, and if you dont know what your doing just don't do it. Ive seen so many cars ruined due to baseball bat sham jobs. True rolling should take many, many, hours. Its an art.

I don't plan on rolling anything! If they don't fit, they won't go on, but I'm sure they will (correction: they are 205). This body is very strait and I'm not going to touch it... except for maybe cutting out the lower grill for the FMIC.

Thanks to Typhoon92 for keeping this car in such great condition!!!

205/45-16's on my car and they rubbed pretty bad on the right rear over bumps, but then again my car was lowered 2.5"s. They didn't rub until I lowered it so much. Davis ran a set of 205/40-16's on his car and it was lowered with very little rubbing. The rims look sick though and should definately be on the car.

It'll be a little while until I get the wheels on. Doing the brakes right now and I wont have the wheels on until I roll the car out of the hanger.

I will post more pics as soon as I get it running, I just need to finish up the water pump and get the injectors installed, still waiting on the AEM rail.

Looks like a nice setup. You should get that engine bay all cleaned up and painted.

Rolling the fender lip does not take tons of time. Using this device:Image
a heat gun and someone that has done it before and it will take you about an hour. I took my Colt to a known local shop and one guy did it in just that amount of time. You can roll flares with that bad boy too but the fenders on my Colt were resistant to this, they just flexed rather than rolled. If you want big flares then yes it will take more time.
