It looks exactly like it did in the year 2000. IWhat they show doesn't translate into what is available. There are a handful of wheels on their site that aren't even available in our market.
The larger dealers like wheeldude.com and racinglab.com can do special orders but be prepared to wait at least 2 months.
Anyone know what the hub bore is on the LEAF? Looks all the 5x114.5 Rotas on wheeldude.com are 73mm...
Edit: Wiki says 66.1 mm - I guess a hub bore spacer should be used?
Just want to point out that the bore isn't load bearing - it's used mostly for convenience to hold and center the wheel while tightening the lugs. The lugs do 100% of load bearing - otherwise there wouldn't be plastic centering rings.I'd just like to officially complain that it's 66.1 mm on Nissan and 64.1 mm on Honda. Makes it expensive to impossible depending on your attitude to use wheels from one on the other.
0I have noticed that it is a little more sluggish to accelerate due to the mass be concentrated further out.
