ROTA wheels South Africa

10 March 2011 2 Comments

ROTA Rims have officially landed in South Africa.

With supply non-existent, Dylan Cothill of Kaihatsu Factory has secured distribution for these awesome mags to the South African motor enthusiast.

ROTA Rims has to survive the series of tests. Impact tests, Cornering fatigue tests, Drum tests, Coordinating tests and an acid tests on the track.
In all these, ROTA delivers. These wheels are a product of 25 years of manufacturing experience, experience that is continually boosted and enhanced by our alliances with European and Japanese technological partners.
The ROTA wheels have been designed with lightweight and performance in mind, using a high magnesium content alloy, which allows a lighter wheel construction and many performance benefits.

An example of this lightweight achievement is the ROTA Slipstream, which is around 40% lighter than a comparable TSW rim.

ROTA rims are proven and widely used in America and the UK for Racing, Time Attack, Drifting and Street. The ROTA mags are available in a wide range of designs, offsets, widths and PCD’s to suit almost every style and passenger car on the road today.

Their company demo car, the Kaihatsu Factory Drift Silvia, runs the ROTA GTR-D’s in flat black. The fronts are 18” 9.5J ET12 with 18/40/225 Falken tyres and the rears are 18” 10J ET12 with 18/40/235 Falken tyres.

ROTA Wheels are available from a few suppliers such as Kaihatsu Factory in Cape Town and Tuned Performance covering Johannesburg and Durban with more suppliers joining in the future. We are on the lookout for new suppliers all the time so if you would like to look into re-selling ROTA wheels, you can visit the official ROTA Rims SA website and sign up as an official Supplier.
