Default Best Vendor to buy Rota's from???

Who is the best vendor as far as non-damaged goods, relatively fast shipping and decent prices for Rota's? I would also like to get tires from the same place so that I can have the whole set ready to swap on.

I know RM does but I have some reservations about them after reading some of the reviews. It seems most of the bad ones concern wheels.

Ideas?

Matt

I am going to suggest Oakos automotive - local to the midwest and Dave is a great guy.

can't comment on speed of shipping because a) i've never had him ship anything to me and b) my items are always special orders anyways.

http://www.oakos.com

they usually have a decent stock of rota wheels in subaru fitments and get pretty regular shipments.

I've had very good experience with subydude...

He carries just about all rotas...

Yup, Oakos, suby_dude and I'll add Red Mist in there, too. I bought some SDRs from Erik at Red Mist and it was a pleasure. I've bought things from suby_dude, as well. Again, nothing but positive things to say. I haven't bought anything from Oakos, yet, but I know Dave. Just look at the replies in his Denso spark plug thread!

You can't miss with any of these vendors, IMO. Not sure who, if any of them, do wheel/tire packages, though.

Although I have never bought from him myself, I have only ever heard praise of Suby_dude, he seems to be the main Rota hookup around here

Can't beat Oakos Auto. Great service, great prices and VERY fast shipping. Check them out online or even better, give him a ring.

I have bought from Oakos, Suby Dude, and Nino's. all of them are great vendors and have excellent service and competitive prices.

now that I think about it, I haven't had a bad experience with any of the Nasioc vendors.

Thanks for all of the replies. Looks like I will just have to get tires somewhere else and then get them mounted and balanced. Thought I could save a few dollars by getting them together but I guess it holds true yet again. You get what you pay for, and if I have to pay a little extra for good customer service then so be it.

/me orders steel grey sdr's soon!!!
