Rota PWR

I've not come across this wheel before but it looks sweet. Anyone know if this set would fit straight onto my R33GTR? Sizes look about right for a flush fit to me. TIA

I have these on my 350Z - it is a nice wheel in great colour! Always attracts compliments.

They look good on Zeds, can't find any pics on an R33. The fitment on a 350z looks very similar though so I'm hoping they'll fit nicely.

Also - friends don't let friends buy Rota.

Have a very poor name regarding buckling and shattering.
You have a GT-R and I'm guessing you wouldn't put sub-standard parts in your engine bay, why take a chance on your wheels? Save up and get something from Enkei, BBS, Work or Advan.

Sigh - look I'm just trying to make someone aware of potential issues.
I've had buckled rims before and it ain't fun.

Will try not to help out in future.

While I think those who buy Rota wheels and then pretend they are Nismo wheels with the fake stickers kill it, the wheels themselves hold up to a lot of abuse. The amount of time I ended up getting caught out in out holes at night in London on my old set yet when it came to sell they were still round.

They are also heavy some 3kg heavier than Rays forged but you get what you pay for. Just don't make them something they are not!

Very true. However, when you've doubled the weight of your OE brakes with massive calipers, discs, brackets, etc, that becomes rather moot.

I weighed 18" MXR with new 888s on and they weighed the same as 18" Enkei NT03 with new 888s. Admittedly, it was bathroom scales, but there or thereabouts.

I was very close to fitting some ROTA centre caps and stickers to my RAYS.

Not sure what that says about me other than I probably need to get out more...

I was gonna do the same to a mate's TE37s at the Ring last year. Sadly she removed the centre caps before going.

Actually going from 12kg Rotas to 9.5kg Gramlights more or less to a few hundred grams balanced out the R35 kit weight. On the rear because of the lightweight alloys bells I've actually saved 750g if comparing with Rota and stock brakes.
