    Rims/Tyres Shop Hin Leong (Kedai Papan) or Jooi Seng? Who's better?

    Hi all.. i have been digging previous threads on the forum as well as asking around fellow members here. I've reached to the point of talking to myself randomly and its driving me nuts :stupid:

    So its Hin Leong (Kedai Papan at Jln Kapar) VS Jooi Seng (Jln Batu Belah)

    1) Who provides a better trade-in value? wanting to trade in both rims and tyres.
    2) Who provides better worksmanship? no alignment issues etc
    3) Which one more honest in terms of service? i.e. not conning u to get "special screws/nuts" or making sure u are paying more for ur tyres or unnecessary service?
    4) Who provides cheaper tyres?
    5) Who provides cheaper rims?
    6) Good customer service
    7) Who provides balance among all of the above?

    Please share.. thanks

    Hin Loong provide more choices and in terms of price, i will opt to hin loong.
    in fact, all my frens and colleagues go to Hin loong whenever they change tyre or rims.

    in terms of trade-in value...I've traded in my previous rim for RM900 and other shops quoted me RM750.

    hi guys. Finally some good replies! I couldnt thank you guys more on this!

    Well.. u see.. im baffled myself :confused: From what i found out from the forum threads...

    Hin Leong - cheaper/est tyres. More choices of rims. BUT, giving/forcing u having weird unncessary services and charging u for it. Also have tendency of making u install some screws/nuts which are way too high/unnecessary. Some feedbacks even covers not layan u depending on what rims u buy. "If u dun buy, many other people will buy" attitude.

    Jooi Seng - More customer oriented and friendlier. Gives Good trade-ins value and cheaper rims BUT, charging way higher (50-70 bucks higher on each) on tyres. less choices of rims obviously.

    The above are just my study/findings from customer feedbacks throughout the forum and not exactly 100% right. Hopefully u guys can fill me in more.

    to Spuzzle: I'm trying to trade in my stock 15"City Rims+Tyres. Get 16" Taiwan CE28N or Mugen GP + Tyres
    to JacEK: wow! thats a very good price for your trade-ins. So far I only get ranging 500-600 bucks only.

    But thanks for the heads-up guys... :adore:

    Any others with experience on either of these 2 guys?

    Some even have good experience with H20. The shop next to Hin Leong.

    Just an update. I went with a friend today to BOTH Jooi Seng and Hin Leong.

    I did mine in Hin Leong and guess what? THEY BROKE MY SIDE SKIRT!!! WTF!
    I'm not sure whether its when the car was lifted (to install rims) where the piece of wood slotted under the car was not placed well. OR, they basically went through some high bumps during test drive (after installation).

    There is a HUGE crack on my fibre side skirt and now needs to go back to the shop for repairs just 2 hours off from the workshop! wtf man.. really...

    I was pissed off with Jooi Seng's attitude during a price survey visit last week and interestingly, my fren who did his at Jooi Seng got pretty good service and price as well. However, the trade in value might be slightly lower than Hin Leong.

    But still!! that doesnt give them the reason to bloody ruin my side skirt!! :banghead::banghead::mad::mad::mad:

    I Would advise u to go for the 2 shops and get a quote.

    make sure u bring ur car along so that they can look at ur existing tyres/rims (if u intend to trade in).

    Sometimes shops give a give & take calculation on their pricing. Meaning, they give u a low low price for tyres but give u a not so good trade in just to cover back (u get wat i mean?)

    At that day, i would say that i got a nice deal (IF they didnt break my side skirt).
    My friend also got a very good deal although the trade in value is just a couple of bucks lower than me but he got better price for the rims.

    Jooi Seng tyres should be just slightly more pricey but depends on what tyres u take. So again, compare before u decide. its so near each other anyway so no harm going to these 2 before u go for the cheapest one.

    but normally if i wanna buy new tires i will use my kancil, go to tyre shop & buy 17" tires/rims...
    dowan to pasang there...if i drive my perdana there they sure charge higher...cos they think we got alot of money ma.... so i just buy the tires, nego to dirt cheap..i say i buy for my customer, i keja bengkel....ahahaa...they wont know ma....but must deal with the boss to get lower price.....

    i pasang my tires & do allignment at my frens shop....much more cheaper compared u buy there & do allignment & balancing.

    i think thats where phailed :(

    sommore the boss (big tall guy with slight moustache) kenot really nego that much. I think tauke soh better (as my frens claim). Dunno true or not.

    If i were to oni get the tyres + rims like u said (without the installation and stuffs) will they still take trade ins then? thats the main concern :(
