    Rota Slipstreams or Nippon F-2?

    both fully polished? major price difference...I've heard Rotas are just knock offs of other wheels, so why spend the extra money on knock offs when you can spend less on another knock off brand?

    oh, these will be going on my 93 cx hatch

    Rotas -- $505 shipped --

    So Nippons are knock offs of a knock off? :spitdrink:

    Those wheels are both knockoffs of Desmonds, who also produce wheels for Spoon.

    Hmm the Nippons don't look to bad for $400.

    the nippons look better with the polished inside IMO. not feelin the painted inner wheel on the slips. but being an old guy who has been there and done that with alot of stuff i would save a little longer and get something real! just my opinion! :)
