Hi guys,
Seems the discussion here are mostly related to tyres.
Would like to ask what "averagely" lightweight wheels brands are reputable nowadays?
Are them Advantis/Lenso/K-Speed still alive? Been out of the scene for ages.
Looking for a set of "not heavy" 17x7jj rims with the budget of RM1500+- (w/o tyres). Any to recommend?
Would you guys go for brand new Taiwanese rims or used Japanese rims (is it even possible to get with this kinda budget?).
Input input! Thanks! :wavey::wavey::wavey:

17" for RM1500 is rather hard.

Advanti make some really light rims. They are owned by the same group that owns OZ Racing, so they are "adik OZ". And they were also used in F1.

For the price, Advanti can't be beat frankly.

Try those bigger tyre shops. Quicksave in USJ, Hup Shun in Sunway....

Just try calling some of the ads I posted above, they should be able to get that model and quote the price.

Advanti is one of the best non-Japanese-branded rim brands you can go for that's light and reasonably strong. I've tested a few other "reputable" brands and nothing beats Advanti in terms of cost vs build quality. Storm series is the lightweight series for Advanti so look at that only. And S1 is no more in production, I'd honestly be surprised if you can find S1 new for 17". I just a few months back bought the S5 17" and that's within your budget bro. But S1 looks way better though.

S5 too many spokes but may be stronger, but hard to wash.

Your Konig sold already?

Including tyres (PS3) 215/45/17 I got it all with trade in of my older rims for total RM2800.

This one.

I would have preferred this one but it's already no more :

was told, s1's are still in production, newly available in 17" 114.3x5

personally, if i were to buy new rims, would look at advanti storm series and enkei tuning (which is enkei taiwan iirc).... but if u are looking for lightweights, look no further, storm series by advanti are probably the best bang for buck rims out there, lenso's lightweight rims cost a pretty penny last i checked.

10 spokes not Advanti S1 meh? S5 I google got 14 spokes.....lol

I prefer top one because will look bigger, spokes reached the rim edge and rims edge also stronger

FYI, S1 17-inch is still in production. I'm a seller of Advanti and Lenso Rims, this I can assure you.

For those who are interested on Advanti DST Storm Series rims, can drop me a PM TQ

S1 is very nice. Would be my first choice if I was shopping for rims. The weight to price ratio is simply unbeatable. How much does the 17" go for.

Best I found is RM1600 all in but only had black colour. RM1650 for gun metal grey. Wanna buy together? Hehe
I would love to, but sadly for my boat, even if I run 17", need to run 205/40 R17 tyres... and I'm stuck with Pilot Sport 3..not many rubber choices.

Oh well...

Too big, affect the rolling radius change too much. I row small sampan only, later cannot move. RE003 good value for money. But between RE003 and PS3, I'd choose PS3 if the price difference not that big.

Btw, if anyone is interested I may wanna sell off my advantis in the near future. They are kinda flat for my liking.

And does anyone know where to buy authentic Rota rims? Specifically these two models :

No doubt PS3 a good all-rounder, but those bloody thread chipping away annoyed me. Hehe.
Chipping is ok la, no big deal. The tire will still performs well anyway. Just change it when you can already see the belts underneath thru the chipping! :biggrin:

Ori Rota is selling pretty expensive in MY, right? Also most of the offsets and widths that they offer here are really2 aggressive outward. I'd rather buy used lightweight JDM rims I think.

Thanks Aaron, stick around. Some people here like me want to explore alternative rims. Hehe.. Does Advanti have any sort of "deep dish" or something type of design rather than the "flat" S1 design? I used to use this rim



and it had a slight positive offset which made it interesting. But unfortunately I found Konig kinda susceptible to knocks and dings so swapped to the S1. But the S1 is kinda boring even though I know it's as light as my Konigs.

im not sure but i was told, there are basically 2 very good velue for $ rims advanti makes, the storm series s1 and s5

and at best i guess you can get a dif offset so that the spokes curve inwards more?

Bro Izso,
I spoke to the sales guy and seems that for 17" they can't do the offset style due to strength issue. As you can see, the spokes are really fine. But for 15", they do have them in concave design. Perhaps you can FB message Advanti Racing Malaysia. He's been very very helpful. Managed to get my 17" S1 gunmetal thru his help.

Haha I'll try stick around here, what car are you using? Usually deep dish rim are wider J and require offset 20 - 35, Storm S1 have concave 15x8, 15x9, 17x8, 17x9 but not popular in Malaysia market and is super rare to get it here. Actually the normal S1 we get here is already concaved in slightly compare to other rims that I come through.

You have concave S1 17x8JJ? Wahhhh.. how much and where to get? The guy I dealt with didn't give me that option. I'm using a Nissan Sylphy so I need PCD100x4. 9jj is too wide for me already. And I need to clear my calipers

Oh 17x8J is for 5x114.3 S1 and S5.. 4x100 only have 17x7J ET40, you can come by to fix the rims to test whether can clear your caliper. Special 8J above need to check with supplier 1st.
