Either way, messing with saftey equipment brings this bootleg parts biz in china to a new low.
but this is purposeful misrepresentation as an OEM brand. Your argument is for a company like Rota Wheels, who does not misrepresent design and manufacturing specs of Volks, BBS, etc...and market theirs directly and openingly as replica style wheels with different names and colors.

In my view, what this guy did is downright illegal
