Why not 11.5" mini cooper turbo rotor? I don't know squat about this stuff, but it looks to be internally vented, ~.5" offset, and I've had many mini wheels on my miata.







Wish I could find that mopar stuff this late at night. I've been using gasoline lol

I can get you better measurements if you want, I haven't even priced these yet but I bet they can be had cheap.

<p>Damn this never sent. Explains why the red are more expensive.</p><p>Black are anodized. Red are powder coated. My paint is already chipping off after a year. I might get them powder coated, if you can do that over the annodization. I also need to get a powder coating kit next time its on sale at harbor freight.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>

Niice, very nearly 11.75!

Is the offset in the right ballpark? Looks like they'd need 10mm hub spacers, or would you even need to bother?

I bought this thing right as they went out of production, you can still find them for $40 new every now and again. Best $40 I ever spent.

I don't know if you can powder coat anodize, I wonder if the static would work through the oxide layer? If the powder sticks, I don't see it not holding up in curing. Worst case, lye bath soak it a little.
