Rota Flow-Form Grid 18 x 9.5 +38 5x114

  • New! It's the same classic Rota Grid you know and love, but in a stronger and lighter FLOW FORMED edition. Flow forming involves shaping the red-hot wheel into its final form using high pressure -- this gives many of the strength and weight benefits of forging, but at lower cost. The flow formed construction means this wheel weighs only 20.0 pounds -- 2.4 pounds lighter than the gravity cast version!

    Just like the cast version, this 18x9.5" Rota Grid wheel has clean lines and broad, strong spokes. In addition, there are flow-form-specific embossed decorations on the wheel lip, spelling out "Rota" and "360 FF". The 18x9.5 +38 fitment is great for late-model 2015+ WRX and STI, among other cars. 5x114 bolt pattern fits all 2005+ STI, and 2014+ Forester. These wheels do NOT clear front four-piston STi Brembo brakes, but a 5mm wheel spacer fixes that*. They DO clear six-piston 2018+ STI Brembo brakes.

    Special Rota 360 FF-logo center caps are included. 20.0 pounds each. TPMS-compatible. 73mm hub bore; hubcentric rings are included.

    We do recommend aftermarket lug nuts, and replacement valve stems.

    Available in Hyper Black (a sort of smokey silver/black color) and matte black.

    Priced per wheel.

    Note: Because of the large size and the nature of the product, there are NO returns on wheel purchases. MAKE SURE your wheel SIZE, BOLT PATTERN, and OFFSET are correct before ordering!

    *Note 2: In one case we installed these wheels on a 2017 STI with our normal 5mm spacer and the spokes still did not clear the brakes. In that case we had to use a 10mm wheel spacer in the front. We are not sure where this variance came from, because we haven't seen this happen any other times. Use caution and inspect clearances carefully as you fit these wheels over four-pot Brembo brakes.
