There are plenty of threads on Rota failures....

5zigen good brand? They're cheaper than Rota...

Could be knock off/remakes...not defending just saying. The finish looks a little shotty. There are a ton of Advan and Volk knock offs with actual markings in so-called original packaging that are popping up everywhere. Can't be 100% that those are actual Volks.
Oh my FUc$..WHO the H3ll invited you in here to rant about what you don't like. Piss off. A wheel is a wheel, and well all know the chances when money is being tossed. One of those stupid links you posted shared a picture of an HRE snapping just like that XXR you posted. So please quit with the beware crap..

Choose your color from the link below, they have pretty decent pricing on lug nuts.

I have Muteki SR48 Titanium with my 502's

A good coat of wax makes cleaning wheels easier. Dirt washes off easier.
