Anyone know more/up-to-date details on these? I like split five spoke :love:

The Enkei PF01 is one of two new Racing Series wheels added to Enkei’s 2010 wheel line up. Utilizing Enkei’s MAT flow-forming technology, the PF01 is designed to be an ultra light-weight wheel. The PF01 is engineered to exceed the RPF1’s weight benefit, taking Enkei’s light-weight racing wheel line to the next level.

Responding to popular demand, the PF01 offers a wide variety of applications including 15×8 and 18×10.5. This wheel also has a large brake caliper clearance to meet car enthusiasts’ needs.

PF01’s split five-spoke design represents its lightness and sporty feel. The subtle edge on the side of the spokes add a unique dimensional accent to its design. Our unique roulette-pattern is grooved on the rim to reduce the slippage ratio between tire and rim. The roulette-pattern maintains the best condition of the wheel and tire assembly, thus, achieving the highest performance during extreme acceleration and deceleration. The ENKEI PF01 will be available winter 2009/2010.

rota torque knock-offs
Split five spoke is a pretty standard form to give a wheel. I'd have a hard time calling a generic style split five a knockoff. It'd be like walking into the supermarket, seeing an apple and saying 'That's totally a knockoff, I ate one just like it this morning from a different orchard'.

Anyway, I think Enkei put about eleventy times the engineering effort into these particular itterations of the split five spoke wheel than did Rota.

Nice alternative to Emotion CRKais...I like em because they look almost identical to my ITR wheels, Emotions do too but I think these do a slightly better job, but I would get these to get a slightly wider wheel(17x8) where as ITRs only come in 17x7

These wheels look sex. I'll have to pick some up; I like what Enkei is doing these days.
