Hi all

Please can somebody help me.

I purchased these alloys from Ebay and they were advertised as

rota boost 17 skyline /mr2/ alloys 5x114.3

rota light 17" weight boost alloys in dark matalic grey couple of little marks nothing major / no dents / buckles/ complete with 225/45/17 tyres all with good tread also comes with brand new set of 20 anadised red wheel nuts slimline any questions please ask
these came of my r33 gts skyline .

It states that the they are 17x7 jj also.

After receiving the wheels today I do not think that they are rota boost as the rota boost is 17x7jj

The only info on the wheel is

VIA 690kg 770-865 SAi BIM DH5032 18002 17 x 7jj off 48 Taiwan 02/12/03

and a japanese sticker with japense writtig on it with jawa no 6071502375A.

I cannot find these alloys anywhere on net?

Does anybody know what they are please?

Thanks

Ian

I saw them on eBay but didn't wanna bid any higher than £75 as I was unsure on the authenticity of them being Rotas!

I bit the bullet and cleaned up the alloys today and then fitted them.

They look really nice in fairness.

I did notice that my michelin sport had worn down to the wire in the inside edge due to the frs. If I was stopped I would have had 6 points!

They had worn inside on both sides.

The new wheels have 235/45 r 17 fitted. They give the car a wider stance.

The et is 48mm.

I will post photos soon.

Thanks for your help Lee.

I just went for a drive with them and they feel fantastic, all the little bumps and potholes seemed to be soaked up- a lot better comfier ride.

As the profile is 235 the arches are filled more with the et being 48 it is perfect.

I would not like to go any mor on the et imho.

I bet when I go to change the tyres back to 225 maybe I will lose some weight of the tyre.

Acceleration seems better now - imagine if I went lighter with the 16 " fighters that way in at 5.9 kg a corner.

I am still contemplating the ctr calliper if only I knew the weight of them to compare with the atr.

I really didn't notice that much, if any difference between the weight of 2.2 and CTR calipers, when I upgraded mine. The CTR ones only sit further out the knuckle to accommodate the larger discs. The biggest increase in weight was of course the larger discs themselves.

What's wrong with the ATR setup you went to all that trouble fitting? If they work, personally I'd leave well alone...
