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.

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

isn't this the S1 :



If not then I'm mistaken. Cuz the one I'm talking about is this one. And this is the one I wanted to buy.

Aaron do you drive a Wira SE with 17" rims? :biggrin: If yes I met you at Heng Tatt Mahkota Cheras

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.
