Varrstoen 2.2.1 or Rota Grid R?

9 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Opinions? are varrstoens worth the extra $500? only real difference i can tell between them is that the spokes on the Rotas are more aggressive than the Varrstoens spoke

 

Rota

Based off looks I would go the Varrstoens everyday (which is why I bought them haha). The straighter spokes look more high end and less of a copy wheel in my opinion, I suspect this is pretty subjective though depending on personal taste.

I would go with varrstoen as well but the price kinda puts me off because I could get enkei RPF1 for the same price lol...btw what offset did you go with? +22 all round?. because someone i know is selling a pair of 18x10.5+15, which i know would fit but would mean i would need to go with an aggressive offset on the front two

Rota are just a cheap sand cast wheel - the Varrstoen are good buying for only $500 more

just found a set of varrstoen 2.2.1 18 inch from concept performance for 1.4k delivered compared to 1.8k delivered from varrstoen australia. A little off topic but if i do decide to get a set I will be getting F:18x9.5+12 R:18x10.5+15 with F:245/40/18 R:265/40/18 tyres, will this fit with 30mm drop all round?

A mate got a set of brand new work xd9s from Jesse streeter for $1400 (including air freight) $1800 for fake wheels is ridiculous

Those sizes will fit fine, especially if you lower it

Yeah lol completely agree with you. I might actually try and save up a little bit up for a set of Enkei RPF1 (about 1.6k for a set) but the high offset of the OEM wheels are starting to get to me lol...I was really contemplating getting 25mm spacers all round and lowering the car 30mm or so.

Yeah they are a great wheel. One of the lightest wheels out there too. I had them in 9.5 and 10.5 +15, nice meaty fitment

      Night and day between the two and in a good way. Where the stock sounds like a asthmatic broken lawn mower the Invidia has a nice rumble to it low down and opens up to a pleasant scream above 3500 - 4000 rpm. Titanium tips sit a little proud and are a bit gaudy but suit the style of the car so i dont mind. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

      That's right, keen to do something like that. Still not sure about the HFC's though-some thread comments below:   Having had a Stillen CBE on its own and a Stillen + HFCs, I’d say a Stillen with stock cats would be a good option for a roadster” -To be honest though the stillen doesn’t need the hfc, especially with the roadster -If you dont want constant loud humming or a loud exhaust in general, then stay away from the hfcs. There is a thread where some guys returned them to stock and couldnt be happier. They said the hfc just made the cabin that much more noisy and annoying.   Did you put the Invidia on after you bought your car? Happy with the improvement compared to stock? Cheers,

      Yeah I remember seeing it for sale on autotrader and thinking it looked like it's been well cared for.

      Sounds good. I also saw that you were enquiring about an CBE and HFC set up. Would like to hear that once its installed if possible as i currently have an Invidia CBE and am considering the HFCs. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
