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:Image

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

it sounds like you have the same wheels as my brother we were told at the time of purchase that they were watts but when we looked closer they obviously arent,we still would like to know what they are we have 5 of them (no they arent for sale)

Yes, they look different than the current Rotas. But the Rota RB only just came out a few years ago. Rota has made wheels for a really long time, and the wheels I've seen of theirs from 20 years ago, look like the ones posted in this thread. :wink:
