Rota RB wheel gallery

I was noticing I have quite a few pictures of customer cars with Rota RB wheels on them, and thought I'd collect them all in one thread. Feel free to post up if you've got photos of a MINI with Rota RB's on it.

Like the wheels, though! Need a set of 15x8 +20 for my Miata, but from what I can tell the only ones Rota has in stock in that size are Royal Gold... Waiting for Gunmetal or Hyper Black. May end up with a set on the MINI eventually as well, unless I find a good deal on a set of R113s. Love the look of the GM on the DS JCW (Mach V shop car?).

Nice looking pictures. That is a very fine looking wheel. If Didn't already have a set of ASA JH6 wheels My MINI would be sporting some RBs.

Sorry, they won't. The "drift" Grid wheels you're talking about are in very low offset -- like +10mm. Plus they're very wide. They'd stick out about 1.5" too far out from the car.

Dan: Do you have any more JCW's with the Rota RB's shown? I just think that this style wheel just say Mini all over it.

How about one (or more ) with body color (not gray, silver, or black) center?

That'd be great...but they don't come in MINI paint colors, so it'd have to be custom. If anyone has done that, show us!

Quick couple of questions:
I think my stock S-Lites are 17x7.

These Rotas are 17x7.5
Does that mean I might be able to step up my tire size from the 215 45
to a wider size,without any rubbing or modifications?

I would like a little wider look but not sure if it will fit, or the next size will really even look wider than what I have now.
Not sure if I want to decrease the sidewall height as I like the way it fills the wheel well now.
Thanks for any replies.

Yes! I'm running the 215/45R17 on my car right now.

But previously, I ran a 235/40R17:

225/45R17 is a little too tall, in my experience, and nobody makes a 225/40R17. So it's either the 215/45 or the 235/40.
