    my opinion, kr is the lightest but i heard they are easily dented compare to advanti and kspeed

    kspeed is tough but heavy except for the LE37 model 8 holes

    advanti is the best bet among all

    Last time when i bought my k-speed in klang, the guy told me regardless
    whether it's k-speed, advanti or even KR it's almost the same as they come from
    the same factory in taiwan. Just the name different and maybe the quality as well.
    Something like JRD too, comes with other branding. As for me i'm using k-speed. so
    far so good for the past 1 year using it. Kena potholes and bumps but still no dent at all.
    :-) Happy user with taiwan rim so far & definately no no to some local brand. just my 2cent!
