    Maybe that's the J-SPL. You can get that one at a variety of shops. Just hunt around.

    You won't get a discount at the factory if you go straight there, though.

    Some of their old designs were heavy, true, but a lot of the new ones come in at under 1 lb per inch. The ones I'm using now are about 14 lbs, I think, for 16", and there's a set at 10-11 lbs for 15". Not as light as the original Japanese versions of the design (and in my case, the original Porsche...) but they're less than half the price.

    Quality is getting better. Some of the older designs seemed to be made of butter, but the newer ones handle potholes and ruts pretty well. Still, the number one draw of ROTA isn't durability... it's price. A lot of racer-boys use them because they're cheap to replace if you break one... and if you drive hard enough, you will break wheels...

    Copycat? Hehe... they'd have to prove it, first... ...but some of the designs now, I think, are original.

    I used to have copycat "Grid" mags on my Sentra before. Nice wheels, but I went cheap-ass on the tires... now I've learned... with what I saved on the mags, I went hog-wild on the tires.

    baka nga jspl. jspl kadalasan ung gunmetal tapos silver polish ung lip. bihira sa slipstream/spoon copy ung ganyan sa alam ko. madaming ganyan sa mga shops, tanong-tanong ka lang. ang mahirap ata ung white ung spokes then polish lip. eto kasi hanap ko. hehehe

    The white one is indeed rare... I should know, my cousin was complaining about how hard it was to get his...

    Siliverwind at Philippine Racing ang layo ng quality from Rota.
    ito-ito na lang ba ngayon ang mga locally made rims? dati merong rallye brand pa di ba?

    There's still Philippine Racing? Where can I find them? Are they any good?

    Silverwinds are still far off ROTA quality... most Silverwinds I see are heavy, and a lot of their designs are old fashioned.

    If you want rare colors, you can contact Rota directly at their factory in Bicutan. That's the only place you can get mags in colors that they only sell as exports.
