LMAO!! Cheaper, and I would buy them if I was doing drift etc and doing things that are likely to incur damage to wheels, but as I'm not, I'd rather pay the extra for the genuine ones :)

You can still get them new yes, but I'm not too sure on the price of them... I have seen 2nd hand sets going for anywhere between £750 and £1000 though. It's just going to be the slight issue of finding the size and offset for mine second hand, so I think I'm going to have to look into new ones.

That's a lot when Rotas look just the same for a fraction of a price?
Do you have to get them from jap land?

They look vey similar, but not exact, and I've always preferred the genuine thing, rather than knock off's. That's not to say the Rota's don't look good, but I would rather spend the extra for the real thing. Like I said , if I was tracking the car or doing drifting days and in general, doing something that would be jeopardising damaging the wheels, then yes I'd buy Rota as I would be able to call them and have a new wheel on my doorstep in 2-3 days whereas that wouldn't happen with Work! As I'm not doing that, I want to have the real ones :)
