    Regardless, if SCS has a patent on the design lawsuits could happen. And whether SCS has the market corner or not, if someone else makes "the same wheel" for less money... someone is going to buy it.

    Far more eloquently stated than my post, but that is basically what I meant by "parasitic, lying bullshit, you lazy fuck."

    Unless his woman doesn't realize you're the twin brother?

    Joking aside. I agree. It's pretty bold bullshittery.

    FUCK @VTXWheels for doing this.

    @SCSPerformance is TW home grown and we should ALL take a stand against this copycat.

    I recently saw that VTX is sponsoring some popular Toyotas on IG and that is just shameful. Vin is a stand up dude. No one has ever said anything bad about him or his company, EVER! So we should all unite and blast this fool VTX on every platform available.

    Boycotting VTX wheels myself... Fuc that! They can't design something more original themselves and pull this kind of shit in the face of all Supportive TW members. Shame on VTX.

    Sorry I raped your girlfriend. When I saw those prom pictures of you both, I didn't realize you were together.

    Some flags and center console divider... lots of things on the wanted list.
    I would imagine the Chinese company that Vin sends his wheel designs to, to be produced, allows a "wheel blueprint" to somehow get lost to a company with some extra cash. And because its a foreign company, little can be done to them legally.

    I just called VTX he answered, didn't seem to think anything was wrong. I was polite and said his designs appeared to be a ripoff, and he'd lost a customer. not sure what good it'll do, but hey got me outa work for a min. Can't wait to get (hopefully) some RAY10s in the next batch!!
