http://www.rotawheels.com/ at the bottom of the page it says "2008 Philippine Aluminum Wheels Inc." In the about us page they go further and talk about their 28 years of history making aluminum wheels as the Philippine Aluminum Wheels, INc.

You can't see the other side of the wheel. If you saw the inside of the spokes, you'd see where the brake cailber came loose and started rubbing on the spokes. Over time, it caused enough damage to warp the spokes.

The same thing could have happened to ANY wheel.

my friends civic makes 290hp and something like 240 lbft of torque. A turbo can do pretty impressive things...i would imagine a 500 hp turbo civic would have at least 280+ ft/lbs or more depending on the turbo size and tuning.
