    Wheel type/size? Car Type?

    My guess would be a Honda, because I think he drives an Integra. Rota's typically are popular on two types of cars, Subaru's and Hondas. 16x7 wouldn't really be an upgrade to most Subaru's as you need 17's to clear good brakes and you would need wider rubber.

    so my guess is for a honda and the picture on the box are the Rota Slipstreams.

    Hey Travis, don't want to make you feel bad about your choice of wheels, but look up "Rota Quality" on google image search. 16X7s makes me think that your car is pre-RSX?

    I've had Rotas on my WRX now for over 5 years with 45 profile rubber no issues. I did get a bend in one wheel but that was because I hit a HUGE pothole, it was my fault.

    16x7 Rota Slipstreams, correct guys. I had a set of Rota boosts but I lost 4lbs at each corner with these. I've seen plenty of gravity-cast wheels fail in accidents at the track but since I'm really just using my personal car (a 96 Integra) for a short commute and the occasional canyon use, Rotas will do just fine.

    you can tell that enthusiasts still patrol what's hot when evreyone knows (or guesses) the car that the cargo goes to, and there is little comment on the cargo room! glad to see that things are still alright at Edmunds. Somehow I don't remember any posts from Travis before. Have you been posting for a long time?

    Travis has been posting for a couple of months now it seems! He's (one of) our enthusiast saviour from Edmunds. He's also apparently tattooed.
