This is just kind of a survey. Just state your maximum price and your reasons. Also if you willing to make exceptions in certain cases like special or rare models or you love those certain rims.

Max Rm2500 for 17/18 inches and 1500 for 15/16, must be original brands (not replicas) and relatively lightweight.

Reason, because that's the reasonable price to still able to find branded original rims with good quality. Above that, not worth it anymore.

Edit: those are for used Japan rims prices. If Taiwan/Thailand, probably drop to max 2k for new ones.

Most expensive I bought so far was the 17' Prodrive GC07 at rm2.4k if not mistaken. Cheapest was 17' AVS Model 7 at rm600. Others are all between 1-2k, mostly below 1.5k.

I think 15 inch 5x114.3 is equally hard if not harder to find, that is if ori Japan under 2k.

Relatively hard to find 15 inch light weight below 2k. Advanti costs slightly more. I am actually looking for lightweight for the myvi
Huh, where people sell Advanti Storm 15' over 2k?? I saw mostly just around 1-1.5k. Konig flow forming rims also about the same price range.

15 inch max budget 3k
18 inch max budget 5k
Also depends on design, specs and version/age of the rims.

Max i paid for RIMs are original BMW X3 18" wheels at MYR1,800, excluding tyres. I always go for original factory wheels, not a fan of after market.

Most OEM rims are narrow, that is why many change rims after purchasing the car.......

Now not willing to pay for rims already. Use factory stock rims. Rim sizes are so big now, the tyres super expensive. No point using nice rims wrapped with ling long tyres.

How I see if a person really has money or not? Not by the car they drive, but by the tyres they use. Fella driving Myvi but using Pilot Sport 3 tyres, that's a rich man. Price ratio of consumables vs car price.

Last time, < RM3k for 17" and below.

That's a dude who knows what he wants. No normal driver wants or needs AD08R. But for a man who sail corners, yup, he needs it. Imagine the rubbers sticking to the road while the entire body of the car leans over lol!
