    Did you buy those? Do they fit a celica? I know the pattern is right but the overall size?

    Correct, I did not buy those, I just post links to wheels that fit our cars. I run on 17x9 38et myself. Keep in mind these aggressive offsets require rear fenders rolled, and some stiff springs.

    BTW: Here is a pic of my setup, since my sig had changed w/o me knowing about it.

    They also have a 17x9 in 5x114. If I ever change my bolt pattern, there is a chance I might have a set of those, but who knows.

    The future of all my cars is up in the air, so I have been avoiding major purchases till I know what I am going to do.

    BTW: Rota offers custom sizes. So many of their wheels can be ordered for your car.

    Rotas also fall apart if you turn too quickly. Just saying....

    No they don't I have to watch a lot of arguing about rotas on the 350z forums. The volk fan bois tend to attack rota threads on that site, since rotas are a replica wheel. I have read both sides of the arguments.

    From my observations of other owners on the site, is that the wheels hold up for daily driving and racing conditions. The sacrifice in rotas is weight, even though the DPT is a reasonably light wheel. (18lbs)

    Another thing that many do not know is the company that makes rota is also the a major OEM wheel manufacture. They make wheels for Ford, Datsun, Chrysler-Mitsubishi, Isuzu, Mercedes-Benz, Opel and Volkswagen.So there is a good chance you rode on rotas and did not know it. My only distaste for them is they copy other designs.

    If they could take a wheel with the DTP weight and make a good looking OG design, they would be making a better name for themselves.

    If they were to continue repicas, I would love to of course see the return of the first style OZ crono, but in lighter weight and more sizes.

    Speak of the devil. I just went to my 350z forum, and someone just posted rotas new wheel. While it may not look like the crono to you, it does look like the racing version of the crono, except further dished.

    If they make these in smaller sizes, I might be sold for a set on my car pending weight.

    Here area few more. For those who might want the staggard look.
    Axis Apex. You can get 17x8 38 et for the front, and 17x8 35et maxis lip for the rear. You get the dished look w/o having to risk odd tire sizes.
    Might look funny if you tired to rotate the wheels. You would have to do a tire swap to rotate.
    http://1010tires.com/wheel.asp?wheel...heelmodel=Apex

    18x8.5 35et.
    http://1010tires.com/wheel.asp?wheel...heelmodel=Halo

    This wheel is also 18x8 and offers maxis lip.
    http://1010tires.com/wheel.asp?wheel...eelmodel=Penta

    I have seen a 205 running 18x8.5 F and 18x9.5 rear of this wheel: Needs special front and rear tire sizes to maintain same rolling diameter.

    I know more than a few racers that have run on Rotas for a LONG time without any problems. BUT it happens with any lightweight wheel, I've seen Rotas, SSRs, Volks, BBS, ETC all fail. Just be sure to check your wheels periodically for any cracks, splits, etc.

    I have a friend who has the pieces of a failed Rota hanging on his garage wall. After seeing that I dont think I could run on them.

    I have busted an OEM 5th gen and 7th gen wheel, it can happen to anything. The only wheels I have read about that have had real problems were axis wheels a few years ago. They earned the name craxis due to the large amount reported that were cracking under normal driving.

    So, would an 18x8+42 work on a '90 alltrac, with stock suspension, without any issues?

    Probably with the spacers. You'd need a pretty big one I think.

    True, but this set is a universal 5 lug, which I believe are usually 5x100, and 5x114.3. Since I'd need such a big spacer, could I not get a lug adaptor to convert it to 5x114.3 anyway? That should also bump it out so that the offset wouldn't be a problem.

    With the money you would spend on the wheels and spacers. You could find a set that fits with out spacers.
