    PS? fake? I know Rota is not a first class aluminium wheel, but tell me please, what could make the wheel look like that?

    BS is that real… Looks like its either been photoshopped or heated and then twisted – How come a 500Bhp chaser doesnt do that when drifting on the same wheels for 2 whole seasons?

    For those bent Rotas – Maybe you’d like to show the rest of the pictures that tells the rest of the story. Ive seen the full gallery, and the caliper was rubbing on the inside of the spokes. You can see what it in the third picture. The insides of the spokes got worn down, and the combination of the heat and reduced metal caused the bending. Please try to tell the whole story next time.
