    Get ROTA's from AllJDM. Jason over there will hook you up if you're from hondaswap ($450 shipped!).

    Plus ROTA's have pretty much imitation wheels from RH and Volks.
    And they are super light.


    Edit: The Rota Grid's are the TE37 cop I think...
    and the.. Sub Zero's are the CP-035 cop.

    have you ever looked at 16 inch Volk TE37's? Pissedoffsol is selling a set right now. Other than that, talk to the guy on here named ALLJDM, he normally can get you some good deals. He runs ALLJDM.com (his website only has like 5% of what he actually sells so just talk to him) his AIM name is also alljdm

    hoped that helped

    about how much do the 14 inch wheels that came stock on the 95 del sol si weigh i want to lose at least 8lbs a wheel and i thought that they were around 18 so i might have to spend the 2000 to get the ones i want because i want to get a very very low time with my del sol when i add the turbo so the lighter the better but at 450 a set shipped i might go with those for now

    go with the REAL things.... ROTAS are cheap, they crack and chip.
    also $450 shipped isnt a good deal...ive stated that before.

    No one can sell ROTA's for cheaper. They set a minimum selling price and if a seller goes below it, I believe ROTA pulls their contract Also, ALLJDM is including free shipping. Find a better deal than that.

    We talk good about Rota's and All JDM for a few reasons.

    #1 I've never heard anyone on this board complain about thier ROTA's and a lot of people have them.

    #2 They are cheap. $450 for 4 lightweight wheels with shipping, thats cheap. Show me another site where you can get them for cheaper.

    #3 Jason at ALLJdm has been a big part of this site and has a huge stock of merchandise. He posts on these boards and is easy to get ahold of. I've never heard one complaint about his shop and I've heard of quite a few people ordering from there from this site for that reason.


    Show me some proof of what your saying or stop trolling. :sleep:

    ive posted before about a site/shop selling rotas for $300-$350. nobody bothered to check out the site.

    and rotas are NOT high quality.
    i swear....some of the peeps on this site are a bunch of circle jerkers.
    most of you are cool, but the rest of you LOVE to have the same opinion of everyone else.
    go ahead and buy from alljdm..i never said dont.
    im only stating that i for one will not, and i will never own rotas again.

    yeah i read that a few months back also........... do you believe everything ALLJDM posts on here. thats some major BS. "suggested retail" might be $450...but it doesnt mean it has to be $450. hell if a shop wants to sell for $1 over cost, they can.
    i know of a few shops selling for cheaper than $450. one is actually $350.
    maybe he thinks hes the lowest price online.... but then again, ive still found cheaper. i did own slipsteams (bought em for my girl) and they werent even worth the $350 i spent.

    for someone on a budget looking for a relativly light wheel of decent quality Rota is a good choice
    are they top quality.... no
    are they the lightest rims in the fucking world.... no
    they are however one of the best rims for the price you pay

    personally i will not be buying them ... but i also plan to do serious road course competition with my car so the 4lbs less that the CP035's weigh makes the $300 per rim price i have to pay for them worth it to me.... if i was not planning to do any serious competing with my car, or i was only planing to autoX with it would i get the CP035's .... hell no... id be getting a set of Rota's with some Azenis or Kuhmo's on them.... there is no point in dumping 1200 on rims and another 800+ on tires that are just going to get beaten up on an autoX track or the street....

    i have seen plenty of people use rotas and i have not seen any of them crack or chip without some serious abuse... thats more than i can say for a lot of other tims that cost 2x as much

    You sound just like SOHCVTEC bitching about fucking Rota's and Jason's prices. You have only been on the board for a week. When did you post about that site? I haven't seen a Rota discusion in awhile..

    Jason helps a lot of ppl out here, gets damn good deals.. he is a VERY good addition here.. trash talkn him is like trashing the owner.. so, stfu

    If you are an admin, just look at the IP #, and the one from SOHCvtec, or that D15B7 fag as well. Yeah, he is a little cunt, just like they were.

    i did a search, i can't find it, why couldn't you post it again?

    and you're putting words into peoples mouths, where on this thread did anyone say they were "high quality"? you're making an argument over something that hasn't even been stated? who is the "jerk"?

    he did not say "suggested retail". he didn't even say he got that info from ALLJDM. try reading these posts before commenting on them.

    they may be able to sell just over cost, but i do know for a fact that a lot of companys have a MAP (minimum advertised price) as well as an MSRP (manufacturer's suggested retail price). that means that none of thier dealers are allowed to advertise prices on the internet, magazines, ect. under the MAP price or they could get in trouble with the distributer. i've read the price when jason (ALLJDM) "said" that he could not sell rota's under $450 or whatever the price was... but he said that he throws in free shipping or free whatnot to compensate for the higher price that he is forced to sell at.
