Rota RB vs watanabe RS
 
im torn...

RB's ( http://www.racinglab.com/rotawheelsrb.html ) are $200 less than RS's ( http://www.watanabewheel.com/products.htm )

they look the same... but somehow i dont feel like i'd be satisfied unless i have authentic Watanabe's on my E30... but can i really justify +$200 for every rim?

i plan to get the aluminum rims in black with polished lip.

what do you guys think?

bump?

im not crazy about those wheels on an e30. regardless id stick with the rotas. Having the real deal is nice, but 1. who cares? 2. if you damage one, you can grab a new one for cheap!

i love those shirts, esp. the first one... i need to get one once i grab the RS's.

I wouldn't take either for an e30, these rims look like they belong on a Miata.

quality. Rota's quality has been questionable lately. Plus they make them in gay offsets. Watanabes have pretty gangster fitments and the quality is phenomenal.

Dymo just go get some sportmaxes or something and save yourself the money. 16x8 et 0 :)

Chris de la Cruz 08-30-2010 04:43 PM

Both of those are just copies of the Minilite wheels so why does it matter which clone you get?

I got the same style in 15x7 for my 2002 from Ireland Engineering last month. http://store.nexternal.com/shared/St...unt2=398673653

minilite are the ones that the original austin mini's came with, right?

now thats classic.

unfortunately i already ordered and paid for a bunch of things from Ireland Racing, so i missed these, though then again, they dont come in black on polished lip.


i have my heart set on the RS's. im commiting... may god have mercy on my wallet *shiner*

I believe they are ET20, which would be awesome!
