Default Different model rotas on car at same time?

I have a set of Subzeros that I want to use as my autocross wheels, but one of the wheels has a crack in it. I also have one extra Tarmac that isn't being used for anything. They are same height/width and since its for autocross, I could care less if they look good together or not. The question is, would the slight weight differential between the wheels cause problems? I will probably end up just buying one new subzero if I can find a dealer who will sell one...

Do a lot of people have problems with Rotas? I know a lot of people use them, but haven't heard too many complaints about quality, durability.

For the price you can't beat them.

We had 2 sets for our STX car and they were both great.

You will hear a lot of people say that they know of bent Rotas.

All wheels get bent at some point. The only reason you hear more about Rotas is that theere are WAY more of them out there.

Furthermore I have only heard truly great things about their customer service. Do a search and you'lll find great testimonials.

No. You'll be fine as long as the offset and dimensions are the same. They are very similar in weight.

2003 in the wet at Nationals, I had on 2 SubZeros and 2 Attacks for rain tires. (The sub zeros I put up front had more tread depth in the Azenis)
