Default new rota wheels?

Anybody heard or seen any pics of the new wheels from Rota? They're coming out in 15x9 and 15x10 in low and negative offsets. Sounds like they would be perfect for those with the n2 fender flares. I think they were called bm8's. Supposed to come out in a few weeks. He's looking for something for his v8 corolla. He's probably gonna get fender flares for it.

ugly as hell but if they are light, decently strong and cheap - who gives a ****? 15x9 version will be available in -10 offset. very un-user-friendly if you ask me.

Yup...those are ugly for sure.
Wish Rota would do a 15x9 version of the SSR PRofessor SP1s.

I've always like the Hayashi street. Looks more appropriate on an AE86 or older chassis car, I've seen a photo of some on a miata and it looked good, but not in that crazy of sizing.

I do like the original Hayashi Streets a lot, but they are very expensive and the sizes are usually too small for my tastes.

I would be all over the Rotas if the offsets weren't so retared.

Original wheels on a miata.

thats the exact photo I saw. Definitely gives it that classy roadster look.

Probably. Wouldn't break the bank either. The only thing that worries me is the Rota stigma that floats around.

I would not be very happy if my wheels decided to take a **** on me.

maybe you guys missed the part about wheel flares. i know guys that have to use big spacers on 9'' 6ul's and they are still sunk in.

and as far as being scared to use rota's? that is the kind of mis-information that makes me sick. i and literally thousands of other people use rota's on track car's every year. if someone breaks one they would have done it with any wheel. don't let fanboi's on streched 195/45's limit your wheel choices.
