When we were in the business of selling wheel, engines, and JDM parts for $$$, there was a go-to brand that we’d always recommend when someone asked about wheels: Rota!
- They really, really close to the racing wheels they were emulating
- The cost made them super easy to sell, and…
- They held up – even on the track. For the 5 year I was selling them, we hardly ever, EVER had a return, and that’s saying ALOT!
While the internet has all sorts of memes about how bad Rota sucks, the consistent popularity of this brand over 20 years is a testament to the staying-power and value of the brand for JDM.
With Rota on my mind, I was looking at some of the posts from our old side and decided to get all introspective on some of the classic ROTA looks of yester-year. So here’s some pictures of some of the coolest designs…
