We never made polished lip attacks in the first bath. It was all solid colors.

We are isolating the A4 batch because, we revised the mould after that to strengthen the spokes for much heavier loas like small van applications

Default Applause!!

I applaud your comittment to the Subaru family of vehicles, and the lengths you are going to in order to prove your products are as good as we think they are.

I know I made the right choice now, regarding the SDR's that just came in yesterday.

I'm glad to see the great customer service, and it will certainly be foremost in my mind when I start looking for new rims. I too am interested in why the rims have failed and what steps have been taken to assure similar situations don't crop up in the future.

Rotas do not suffer from quality control problems.

My personal evidence: Do you know how hard it is to manufacture wheels that need little-to-no-weight to balance?

that or equally unbalanced wheels and tires canceling each other out..

although usually the wheel balancing is to make up for the unbalanced nature of the tire, not the wheel.

but nice ultra grips there.

That sure looks like a stick on weight inside the rim to the right of the valve stem

FWIW, tires are the biggest culprit for making a wheel out of balance, not rims.

Yes, they are.

The timeline goes like this.

The first batch had a code of SVP and A4.

The second batch had a code of B4. These already has the revised machining of the back spoke and still has the cavity at the back. The nest batch was the A5 where the cavity was totally eliminated.

The B4 batches was already tested to a max load of 690 kg

Mine are marked as SVP 02. I bought them as soon as they came out.
I'll contact you when you get your email straightened out. I have to go order a set of Rota Slipstreams.

I autocross my Attacks and would feel better with the extra strength. Indiana roads don't help either.

Keep up the good work and customer service Rota!

Dale
a happy customer

Because of the high offset requirement for the Subaru, we are having some fitment issues which regards to the brake caliper clearance or the grids.

Our grid was designed for a maximum offset of 45 so it is prety hard to get adequate clearance in a 48 offset

Scratch that idea then LOL.. Thanks anyhow it seems you have looked into it. You do have great CS most other people would not put them selves in front of a firing sqaud. I'll hopefully be getting some formels (sp?) this summer.

Thumbs up CosmicUSA - thumbs up!

Kudos to Kim and Cecille who took time out from a busy day processing and shipping to exchange my early set of Attacks for the newer ones. Zero hassle.

I had no problem with the initial set, but since Rota Wheels offered the exchange I thought it a good idea to take them up on it.

Happy Motoring!
