    U know... Immitation and Copyright is different...

    Immitation is when Buddy Club P1 is replicated by K-speed K1 or 6-spoked rim dat similar to P1 but U dont even know the brand and where it made from...

    Copyright is when a Japanese(or intarnational) brand company outsource from developing countries such as Taiwan/Thailand/M'sia/ and manufactures the product under license. It is globally about controlling labour and raw material cost.. In this case U have Enkei RP01 Taiwan and Enkei RP01 Japan... Both are genuine but the originality stated at the back of rims.... I can say that Germany had given license to Malaysia to manufacture those JRD rims... yet still ori. (the kilang is somewhere in Rawang I think....)

    U simply cannot say Honda City CKD assemble in Melaka is immitation only bcoz it is locally made...

    Don't think its a silly mistake but more towards purposely print it wrong to differentiate with the ori ones. I don't think such reputable company will accidentally print the rims with wrong info but if they've done it, it surely will affect the whole manufacturing models...i think its fake rim lah...:biggrin:
