They need to make them in the same sizes 6ULs come in.

i have to agree with that, mike. the fillets where the spokes meet the rim are a little fatter than my wat type b. the casting looks a little smoother, but i attribute that to mold and material differences.

the rota RBs have a spined, flared spoke, more inline to the panasport and minilites.

If they come in the right sizes/offsets I may buy a set to do crazy shiz with paint.

So, where's the guy that kept saying this was all a hoax? I wonder what he has to say now.

Unlike the Wats, the smaller hub on the Rota forces the lug holes into the spokes - don't care for that much.

... might still pick up them up as street beaters though depending on the weight/offset .

Knockoff or not, these wheels look sexy. I can't wait to see the full list of sizes. Rota does a pretty good design job on their knockoffs. And really, who cares?

People with legit wallets can buy legit goods. Deal with it.

Some of you take it way too far up the ass when it comes to reps, jeez. Calm the fuck down, its just a chunk of metal you put some rubber around and drive on.

Especially when it's a case of knocking off knock offs.

Since owning a real set of Wats is damn near impossible, these will work for me. As a street wheel I'm sure they'll work just fine.

Needs more 14x7 though. A +20 offset would be nice as well.

Yeah, not everyone is trying to push the fitment game with a set of wheels like these.

Curious to see how much these weigh.

I know right! I've been looking into Wats because etikoner keeps mentioning them on my build thread...

These Rotas seems like an appealing alternative considering its price and lesser amount of hassle.

Ive been waiting for this...

as soon as someone sees an order opportunity (probably from 18racing), post it here, i want to be first on boat

you "theyre replicas" guys are ridiculous... if the chunk of metal looks of a style that excites you, just rock'em! most of your cars here are just pretty street cruisers anyways... i for one, think these look amazing! and the fact that they will be in the $600 range will put them in the "i have no money because my school takes all of it" bracket.
