^^^Word on the lightness. That's why I picked up some 16" Rota Grids. svtff1213, maybe start with 40psi all around, then feel the car and make adjustments.

when i ran my 16x7 kazera's and i put about 42 up front and 36 in back and i had no roll over, was perfect, but it all depends on your suspension setup, just start a lil higher like 48 and see how much roll, prolly wont be any and just keep deflating til theres just a tiny bit of roll along the side grip part

almost all 16" wheels will clear SVT brakes. there are even 3 models of 15" wheels that will clear (team dynamics pro race 1, and 1.2, and OZ superlegera). Rota are light wheels, good for racing, as well as team dynamics, and OZ, and centerlines etc.

I have the TD PR1 in 15" over my SVT brakes. it can be done. my wheels weigh ~13lbs without a tire

Did everyone running Rotas (Grids/Slipstreams) find the 45mm offset? I've been watching the Rota availability page, and I'm only seeing 40mm offset, but I could swear I've seen 45 in the slipstreams at least.

It took me forever to find these 45mm offset Slips. 18racing is the only place I've found that ever has them.

I bought my Grids used. I'll try to contact the seller. Is there any way to tell on the wheel?

Finally checked on the inside of the wheel and on near the hub it has a 40 stamped into it. So I'm assuming this is for 40mm offset as the other numbers on the inside I couldn't make any sense of.
