Mine chipped a little on the spokes on one wheel. I just assumed that was due to me not being as careful as the first time I mounted them up when I rebalanced one of the wheels last week... I'll keep an eye on them to see if any more chips show up.

Yeah I realize Rota's are not the best rim's out there. But this is unacceptable, I have never seen rims wear this fast...

So Mach V has stopped communicating with me after I have sent e mails and pictures of the dammages to my wheels after 1 week of ownership.

I will give them until tomorrow to contact me and I will be filing a complaint via BBB. Has anyone else had any luck?

That sucks dude. I haven't noticed any more damage to the paint on my wheels... but I did lose the rota sticker from one of my center caps. I guess I shouldn't keep my hopes up about getting a replacement center cap.

Edit: Looks like I'll be getting a new center cap from Mach V/ Rota... Thanks again

Sorry about the delay. I did reply to you this morning. I'll have touch-up paint on the way to you, no charge.

I ended up purchasing a set of XXR 527's in hyper silver (18 x 9.75) Just arrived today actually. Test fitted and I was surprised on how light they felt. They feel lighter than my old Rota Torques (17 x 8) and I love the concaveness.

What are those? 18x9.5 Rota D-Force's? What kind of tire do you have on them? They look nice.

Here's a few pics from a quick photoshoot my buddy did for me.

Just to cover this once more... Wheels: Rota D-Force 18x9.5 +40 (Gold) Tires: Falken Azenis RT-615 - 265/35/R18

Stock suspension, Rear fenders are rolled, fronts are not. Rears still rub on large bumps or with a fully loaded backseat.
