I dont know if this is true or not but I can say that from what I know they are not that popular and I personally will only get them as a special order item.

They just dont look the same on a car as they do in pictures and that seems to be a turn off to people.Not to mention the heavy weight.

Alot of the vendors here try to hype products up, or make out like they are limited so that they can make sales quickly.

The Tarmacs are not discontinued. I doubt the Battles are either. Check this thread for a response from Rota.

If this is a stab at me maybe you need to read what I typed.

BTW,I stock only the subzeros and attacks from rota.I dont stock the tarmacs or battles anymore due to the limited nature.

No, no stabbing at you.

There are two very famous sellers here for Rota wheels that I have repeatedly heard hype of their wheels, or attempt to indicate that the wheels they are selling are some sort of last chance limited edition.

Actually, this isn't even a stab at them, since if I were a merchant I would probally do the same. I am just saying, don't believe everything vendors say when it comes to these types of claims on their products.

I like my battles. I would get the new SDR's if I was buying now, but what the heck.

I like my battles for the simple reason that no one else seems to have them on their car.
