Yep, not Rays....

INOVITE.....quite.

I'll add these to my Bendux Ultimato brake pads.....

Of course, the immediate reaction is that these are made in some sweatshop in Northern China, out of melted down Migs....But:

You can order the same wheel without the embarassing stickers

The company is based in England apparently. But the English is a bit stilted, so... a bit of poking around, and you find:

Interesting; European technical team (I guess they brought out a UK wheel maker), but where are they made? But it sounds like the are made in a certificated factory. Just a quiet design office....

Still if Rota can get away with the Grids.....

Its a pity they don't do 15". The 16" wheels are flamining cheap at £70 each (not on ebay), and looking around on the Scoobie forums, it seems no one has any real complaints about them.

Thing is, the immediate inclination is to think these are unsafe. But then you read that manufacture is currently done to a British Standard, and they're working to TUV standard (essentially that means they are as good as OE, thats why you'll never get a TUV-approved MX5 rollbar...., no MX5 came with a rollbar).

I suppose like Rotas, no one is being mislead about these wheels. Those stickers are still embarassing.

it wouldn't be so bad if they didn't call it "ravs" and didn't use the "rays" font
Yeah that is the misleading part, if thats not an attempt to be a knockoff, i dont know what is.

As for that article about AC Schnitzer copies being crushed....... hahaha I LOVE IT !! :twisted:

Now they need to focus on SleazEbay!!!!!!! =D> Pleanty of Replica/Style wheels there too!
