Unless OP blew all his money on the car, and doesn't have any money left to buy the real shit.

You might as well buy Canadian Tire spinners.

And to everyone who support buying the replicas; No, it's not "the same thing"
Your wheels are crap.

The only wheels that one would probably buy that would cost more than 5K, would be JP Scaras, Custom Veilsides/Jlines etc.

Volk is not your God. They're just over priced 70% of the time

Although I agree on the cliche "safety first", I don't think Rotas are poor in quality in general.
They are lower in quality compared to Volks, Advans, SSR, or even Work or Enkei, but they are better than a lot of no-name brand wheels on the market, not to mention stock wheels. They're not made of foam or plastic lol. I don't mind picking up a set for DD at all. They are considered "replica" wheels because they copy the styles of popular wheels on the market.

No the wheels you said are over priced.
Just because they look baller doesn't mean they are the best quality.
Volk monoblock(TE37, CE28N etc) are 8000 ton forged. So is Neez.
FYI HRE are 4000 ton forged.
Volk is one of the strongest and lightest wheels if not THE strongest and lightest.

I bet you have never seen the fitment on those 10g Carlsson.
You will be surprised.
