It's finally here: The Rotiform Penta Replica

Not bad, but not great. The shape is a little simple. If I had an AMG car I might spring for them as a daily wheel to keep my legit AMG wheels safe.

They have become a very successful replica wheel manufacturer, in essence.

I have had two horrible experiences when then, so I'm not sure I would buy from them again, but there is no denying that their wheels are pretty.

Hopefully they made everything alright with whatever issues there were.

In both cases it came down to a HUGE waste of my time which, no, you can't get back. Lesson learned.

Rotiform will build their styles any way you like -- 3pc, monoblock, concave, convex, yadda yadda - but they are all "real"

That's what happens when a company is run by a younger age group. I am hoping they are taking their orders and the business more seriously now...that "over promise and under deliver" mentality will sting customers for a long time.

Yes, I tried to explain this to them in my usual delicate way but they (Jason) didn't listen; and by then -- this was 2013 -- they already had a bad rep in the "adult" enthusiast community.

I can't blame them though, I probably wouldn't have acted much better if I was worshiped by 19 year olds.
