Default Rota Tarmac II's

Does anyone have these wheels? If so, are you happy with them? I've heard, and read stories of Rota wheels cracking and breaking. Is this a problem with the Tarmac II's? I've only heard of it happening with the Attacks and the Subzeros. Any info would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

B

What did they change from the Tarmacs to the Tarmacs II? Does anyone know?

I have regular Tarmacs that are from 2002. I like them even though I haven't put them on in awhile. Need new tires for them. Thinkin about some Hankook RS2's or Falken Ziex 512

I actually got mine in today and had them installed today.. they are way better looking than the stock 02-03 wheels.

Tarmacs are a Prodrive P1 knockoff and Tarmac II's are a Prodrive GC-010E knockoff.
