I pulled these pictures from their facebook.

The rims are called "Hentai." They are listed as "4 holes," which I take they'll come in 4 lug pattern.

It's a great copy of the OG dori dori for sure but why does it matter if it has to be legit to get respect. I see plenty of builds on here that involve so many replicated parts and nobody gives two shits about what brand it is but when it comes to wheels "oh it's not the original so it's no good" attitude always shows up. I can understand if you walk up to somebody and ask what wheels are those and they straight fake the funk and tell you that they are doridori. Not everybody can afford the price of the originals and being discontinue makes it even worse trying to find a set in the size and condition you would want. These would be great for daily driving and track abuse.

You know I use to bash people for running fake stuff all the time but now that I have 2 kids I understand what alot of people go through and that simply just being able to work on your rolla is just good enough. Isnt that what this community is all about. You might think I have nothing but "fake" stuff but everything that's on my car is legit only "fake" is my obx headers, everything else is I either built it myself or are "legit" parts. So I have nothing but RESPECT for anybody who is working on their beloved rolla whether through harsh times or not. But I have absolute ZERO respect for people who have this type of mentality. It's your car do what you want with it. Rice it out or "JDM" it out do whatever you want dont give a crap what other people think. Sorry for the rant just tired of seeing post like these.

Also why does everyone refer to Rota as being " fake", I mean we all know they are copies of other "original" wheels, but its not like they are made of plastic or anything. They are cast aluminum wheels just like many "real" wheels. I've had many sets of wheels over years,"real" and replica, and you know what, the "real" ones didn't make the car any faster than the replica ones. Sometimes the replica ones were even lighter believe it or not. I'm sure someone will eventually bring up, "Rotas will crack" story from long ago,but I've never met anyone here who's "cracked" their Rotas. But if they can handle the roads in the Philippines, pretty sure they can handle the roads in the US.

Another thing, If you guys are worried it will bring the value of your real wheels down just cause someone makes a copy of it, don't, because it won't. I mean, why would it, they are 2 different sets of wheels.

Funny thing is Watanabes and Hayashis are baller but are copies of Campagnolo and Minilites, granted the material is forged etc. instead of cast. Also costs an arm and a leg haha

No SH!T it's a good looking wheel!! Because they copied a GOOD LOOKING WHEEL. I refuse to buy Rota because instead of making a name for themselves coming up with unique designs and original ideas, all they have done is copy other peoples ideas. Having their sh!tty a$$ wheels on my car would bother me because I know it's just a copy and probably not as well made as the original Dori Doris. You run these and you are just like them b!tches running around with the fake louis vuiton bags, hahahaha

I Agree with HingaSPL. All im gonna say is look at how many broken rota wheels there are when you google "rota wheels". Rota wheels are trash. Dont cheap out and buy them and then watch your cheap investment destroy your car.

This is just in from Rota CEO:
"As the President of Rota, I would like to thank SSR, Volk, Work, and other reputable manufactures for their hardwork on these beautifully designed and timeless wheels. I also would like to thank JapaneseDeman, boomstik01, DatGuy217, carbd7age, FC_13, John H., DJzmanila, and the many knock off supporters for feeding my family and my eating binge".

"As for you Mr. HingaSPL, I like ripping off others' designs and sell unsafe wheels to suckas...so what? All I had to do was copy and paste using photoshop. You can do it too, haha"

I'm more surprised no one has commented on the name yet. Hilarious choice if you speak even a little Japanese.

Dear DatGuy217,

I understand you called our office with some concerns regarding our product quality. The false claims and photos floating around the Internets are, well, JUST THAT. SSR, Volk, Work, and other reputable manufactures are upset we are cutting into their profits and as a result are producing Photoshopped-images of our finely engineered reproductions and distributing them online (see the examples below).
Rest assured we use only the finest recycled Coke,Pepsi, and Budweiser cans in the production of our wheels (you can still see the CRV markings and born-on-dates if you look closely!). We take quality very serious here at Rota and will never cheapen out and use Pabst cans, or any other cheap hipster drink cans.
That said, if you still wish to request a copy of the material test reports, simply write us with the model name and details of your Rota wheels purchase and we will promptly reply with certifications. Heck, I personally will send these right away, as I have Word installed on my PC and can type up any cert in a matter of minutes!
SAFETY for you and your 2 lil kids is our number one priority. Profiting from others ideas and hard work does not even come to mind.
We thank you, and JapaneseDeman, boomstik01, carbd7age, FC_13, John H., DJzmanila, for your continued support.
Now its time to hit the buffet with my good friend, Robbie Rizzo. See you there, bon appetit!

Sincerely,
Mr. Rota
