They're a replica of the Volk TE37yea those are rota grids i did some research theyre basically the knockoffs of the work emotions and volk makes a set too (pretty much the same but rota are 50% cheaper)
That wasn't always the case. I remember buying my Rota grids for less than $500 two years ago. Granted the offset wasn't anything close to what is pictured. Perhaps people have since caught on...They're a replica of the Volk TE37
Volks are more than 50% cheaper than the big dollar brands. Typically they're closer to 75% cheaper as you can sometimes buy the entire set of four Rota's for the cost of a single Volk wheel in the equivalent size.
Here's your proof:
18x9½ Rota Grids (5x114.3/e38/73) ~$950.00/set

+1rota grids; at least 9.5 inches wide. i just picked up a set for mine FXT.
they're cheaper than the volks and the works; they're also remarkably light.
and in regards to them being weak or "cracking" on a big impact, that'll happen to most common wheels. the advantage with the rotas is that if you manage to destroy one, they're cheap enough where you could replace the one wheel and not go broke.
not so with the volks or the works.
at the end of the day, it really depends on what you want to do with your car. i'm not in any position to justify over $3000 on a set of wheels. particularly when that's about 25% of the value of the car (in my case). that just seems silly.
