From a former Racing Hart owner....pass on this. They're not as strong as you think. (CP-035's are the exception)

I use to have the C5's as well the old school ones 3 piece. I loved the wheel but when I lowered my car the 42 offset made them rub really bad. I had to give them up. If i remember correctly Joon did you have the same wheel a while back? C5 in 17? What didnt you like about them?

Yup I had the same wheel......that sh*t bent way too easily and I've seen many a Racing Hart do the same.

You're probably right. There's some other places that sell Rotas on Honda-Tech.com, you might want to try there.

I would keep looking....Rotas are nice for $450 but $600 is a little high. I would save your money and wait till spring. No need for wheels now anyway.

i was shopping for the battles about a month ago and i tried all the places where everyone here got theirs, no luck. the thing is, most of the shops don't carry a lot in stock, when the distributor is out, they are out. i pretty much stopped looking after a few places told me the distributor was out of stock, at that time i thought it'd only be temporary. oh well, glad i didn't wait.
