    Does anyone have any ideas where to get Rota 16x8 et10 or similar without spending a fortune importing from the states? Rota UK don’t seem to bring them in, anywhere in Europe?

    I'm also interested in this. My 0mm offset 16x8mm rubs even with rolled arches. I run a 225 mm tire. I will not use a 205 as that is too narrow for a 8inch wheel.

    Option one is to find a +10mm 16x8 wheel which seems to be very difficult! I see that Minilite are now producing 16x8 with some custom offset. But the 8 inch can't be choosen with +10mm.

    Option 2 is to use a 7 inch wheel with 205s. I know this is quite silly, but most 8 inch wheels look much better to me.

    Can you do something with a bigger offset (inset) and spacers?

    It's difficult, if the question was aimed at me.

    Almost all wheels have 0mm offset in these dimensions. At least the ones who fit this car style wise to me. Many modern wheels have quite large positive offset. If I could find somewhere around 15-20mm on a wheel a spacer would work fine...

    I think I was asking anyone that had opinion I thought of it because my 17" compomotive minilites have a big +ve offset but came with custom spacers to put them in the right place in the arch.

    Atara are looking at 16" options. But will most likely be 8J and zero offset.

    Market forces dictate the sizes that are most likely to sell...

    Sadly there is at least 200 USD extra in shipping and import charges of 50 USD per wheel for me.

    Nice find though
