Default Avid-1 vs Rota wheels

For a lower end wheel which is made better? I belive the Avid you can get ina monoblock. Not sure about the Rota?

All of the wheels in this price range are made to meet a price point and the r&d along with the quality are sacrificed. You are better off saving the money and buying a set later on or finding a used set. If you buy a cheap set you will not be happy and when you try to sell them you will never get the money back and possibly not be able to sell them at all.

Any wheel will break over a certain period of time or if you hit a big enough pothole. No matter if its Rotas or Work wheels. Everybody is going to tell you to stay away from Rotas because of hear say but most of the ppl never even owned them to know if they are good wheels or not. I have a friend that has Rotas and a friend with Work wheels and we was traveling in NY and hit a pot hole. My friend with the Rota wheels didnt bend or anything but my friends with the work wheels slightly bent. Not everybody can afford Work or Volk wheels. I actually like some of the Rota wheels. Never heard of the AVid wheels though.
