I'm about to push the button on a set of Rota GTR's for my FN2.

I'm really keen to make sure they're not concave at all but lack the knowledge of this stuff to get it right!

These are the alloys:

Rota GTR 18 inch White | 5x114 | ET48 | Rota Alloy Wheels | Rota Wheels | Rota Shop

I'm wanting them to sit completely flat, much like this:

And wanting to avoid even the slight bit of concave look, like this:

Will the alloys I'm about to buy be what I need?

Thanks

What width are you going for? That will have an impact on how concave they are.

For reference, here are a couple of pics of mine, there is some concave in them.



Not sure what the specs are, I can check at the weekend for you if you want. I'm running 225 tyre and it's not stretched, I would guess they are 7.5 or 8 wide.

Check out the team dynamics pro race 3, they may be more suited to what you want.

Thanks Mebz. It's 8 inch. It's exactly the same spec as those in the Rotashop link above.

Yours look pretty much right for me, but I'd go even flatter on mine...if I can

These were mine with 20mm spacers on. As you can see the rear still needed another 10mm so it might be best to measure how much extra poke you want and then calculate the et from there.
