There are better options than Rota for inexpensive wheels IMO (Rota is pretty low quality). Check out ESR wheels. They even have rotary forged wheels for under 1000 bucks and their styles are "on trend". There are several other wheel companies that sell decent wheels at the 500-700 usd range.
To answer your question regarding running inexpensive wheels on a DD to avoid damaging very expensive wheels... That just makes sense. Just remember inexpensive and low quality is not mutually exclusive, you can have one without the other, preferably the former and not the latter.
Thanks I will look into ESR wheels

Look into deals on Gram Lights and Advan. They are out there. I never would have thought I could afford my Volk TE37's in mag blue with the perfect fitment. Thanks to Andy at FKX racing he made it possible. Look into his website: fkxracing.com He is a vendor on here and goes by team3d. He has been a huge help in all my car purchases and needs and will steer you in the right direction.

I was rubbing when I first got them installed so I got my fenders shaved.

17x9, +20 will stick out +8mm than 18x9.5 +34. Hopefully 215/50 will not rub

Nice, I think having more sidewall to stretch the tire down should help make up for that extra 8mm. Good looking meshy wheel though.

bought a used 215/50 17 to test fit and they barely fit. took a quick spin and no rubbing may need to go with a 205/50 if i plan to lower it more, tires im thinking about are the ohtsu fp7000 which is the replacement ive heard for the falken 512 so hopefully should stretch alot more than these tires

Fitment is great! No adjustments. These photos are actually from my LX. Here are some updated ones on my Sport. No rubbing issues at all as well! Sits different on every car. So on my LX it was a little lower. The sport runs a tad bit higher same specs on the wheels tho

They looked so good on your car that I actually picked up the exact same size wheels finished in gunmetal (18x9.5+40) for my Civic EX Sedan. I haven't bought the lowering springs yet and plan to run it on stock suspension for a bit, I read that you had no rubbing or scratching issues but how are the wheels holding up? Is the quality good?
