Hey guys,

Glad to be here! My first post and hope to get your precious advice & experiences. ;)

I'm planning to change my Rim and Tyres very soon (latest by this Friday) before I go for long distance travelling to JB. I'm in Cheras area and now using 13" Tyres.

Any good recommendations for Rims & Tyres (Hankook ME02) for 15". I currently have one workshop offer RM 1,450 for both Rims & Tyres + Free alignment and balancing. Is it a good go? Any good workshop around or nearby?

Some said there are some shops say their Rims made inTaiwan but actually are from China. How do you differentiate?

Any difference of Fuel Consumption between 13" and 15" tyres? My car is Wira 1.5 Auto.

Hope to hear from you guys.

Thanks! :)

That budget should be able to get you the Advanti Storm series 15" rims + some decent rubbers like Hankook v12 or Neuton N8000 or the Achilles ATR Sport tyres. Won't be able to get you the Michelin PS3 or Toyo tyres.

Highly recommend you buy lightweight rims, 1.5L Auto Wira will suffer with heavy rims both in acceleration and braking.

Hi Izso,

I don't have specific design. As long as it is safe and stable. :)

For me, Rawang too far. Have to cost in Petrol, toll, time etc.....:biggrin:
Go Rawang eat their steam fish. Fuh. Ichiban. And then might as well go get rims and tyres since it's "on the way". :biggrin:


FastEric : My suggestion is to never consider "Replicas" that look like the original, feel like the original, even has the original sticker but isn't original. You're better off getting rims that have a functional purpose rather than looks alone. Lightweight lightweight lightweight.

If you have the budget the original Enkei RPF01 is very good and way lighter than anything out there (15"). If not too much budget Advanti and Konig have lightweight rims as well, though slightly heavier than Enkei's one. And anything above 5kg is too heavy.

:biggrin: :slug:

This comment helps me a lot...will just save up for better and more worth it rims. Shouldnt rush it. :biggrin: Unless can find 2nd hand Advanti Storm or Konig :love:

Rawang steam fish not nice leh to me lah! Peel road one much better and no need go so far.....hhahhaha:biggrin:

As for rims/tyres, some say rims cheap, tyres not, or if tyres cheap, trade in lower. Got pros and cons.
Then there is the trouble of going back if you have alignment and balancing problem. If not pay extra to get it done at your usual place.
