Default Cheap Alternative to Rota Tarmac?

Are there any cheaper priced but very similar looking rims with decent quality that are close to Rota Tarmacs but about 2/3rds the price?

This is like asking where you can buy a fake fake rolex. I would save up the cash and at least get some Rotas. Theres a thread in the vendor classifieds right now with Rays 57fs for like 1100 bucks shipped.

What has the world come to? Are Rota's getting overpriced? I imagined that would happen when they were just starting to get popular.
