    wheel id?

    we were sold these as watanabe rs4's, but after buying a set of wat caps from the local importer it seems theyre not(also fter looking at them properly they dont have the 3bird symbol).
    theyre 14x6 and are made in the phillipines.


    thanks in advance

    Sorry to add to the ridiculous number of "ID my wheel" threads currently cluttering this area but I'm reviving this one since I just got a pair of wheels looking the same as these; 14x6 4x100 offset40, even the VIA JIL lettering in the same place on the hub & saying MADE IN PHIL on the inside of one spoke and I wanted to ID them & get more.

    obviously made in Philippines could suggest Rota though their RB seems to look a bit different:

    & I still have another wheel I also have to ID due to damage....
