I just picked up a set of Rota Grids and I can't find Volk Center-Caps anywhere...

Any suggestions?

Vivid Racing has them. If you REALLY must have rota knockoff caps...show your Rota pride and run authentic Rota caps, not that knockoff stuff. It's people like you that's the reason companies like Rota and Wheeldude go out of business!! BUY AUTHENTIC!!

What the hell do you mean?

Some guy is selling them on Craigslist Boston for $100 but I don't know that they're real. Was thinking about picking them up with the floor mats he's selling. I'd rather buy from some sort of vendor with a reputation, so I don't get screwed.

I figured you were just trying to rile people up by asking for Volk center caps for your Grids.

From the pic they look legit, just worn out. Are you sure they'd fit your Rotas? Also, are you actually going to put Volk caps on Rotas? If so, and you're seriously not trolling, well, it will warrant a facepalm.

Yeah why wouldn't I? They're the same wheel aren't they? I just hate the Rota Logo.

We'll facepalm him in person if he does that, don't you worry. Actually, it'll be more like socks filled with bars of soap...

Then we'll steal his center caps.

But yeah, either run Rota caps or no caps, Volk CF authentic caps will just get stolen by real fanboys who think you're doing a disservice to the cap by putting it on a Volk. For no other reason than because they believe you're an asshat for doing it and need to be taught a lesson. lol

Caring about Rotas is like caring about people buying the Wal-mart brand of medicines. Does the same shit (unless you care about super performance) and costs less. I care more about weight than anything else so I'll go with the cheapest lightest wheels I can get (looks like RPF1) once I use up my existing track tires.

Let's not get into another rota vs volk debate..everyone has their reasons - deep pockets, they demand JDM wheels, because it looks better to them, because they couldn't pass up a good deal, etc.

Look at me, I run Rotas with Rays Engineering lugs. Why? Because I got them at a very nice price!! ^_^

But I rock rota center caps.

Rota used to be the "affordable" good looking wheel. Notice how much price has gone up recently on 18's? :O Sucks. Not TERRIBLE but a whole set is significantly more than it used to be.

I prefer Enkei they are usually lighter and not much more expensive. My point is, I don't give a rats ass if you have Rotas or volks and people who get worked up about it over the internet remind me of:

Wow, at first glance I really thought she was doing some other gesture with her fingers and mouth.
