Can you guess which one is pressure cast?


I cannot. As far as I'm aware, there isn't necessarily a visual difference between the end results of the two casting techniques and, to me, regarding wheels, appearance is secondary to strength.

Are Rota's Fuchs look-alikes pressure cast or does their design preclude using that process?

The fact that Rota's wheels passed Rota's tests doesn't reassure me of anything. No bad reflection on Rota; I just believe that only tests performed by industry accepted labs are acceptable as objective.

Nor is who Rota's customers are or how long they've been marketing wheels or whether they need anyone's help in designing their wheels of particular interest to me.

My questions are sincere and not meant to touch a nerve or turn off anyone's interest in the wheels. They are, I think, pretty basic yes or no questions, the answers to which are important to me to help me decide whether to buy the wheels or not.
