Advanti Storm DST or Konig flow forming models are the best value for money and legit. I use Konig Hypergram myself, almost as light as Japan Enkei RPF1 for less than half the price, cannot find a better deal than that. Also can opt for local made Raxer, also flow form type.

I am still skeptical on those Thai copies, seems decent but how they could get away with that. BTW the prices also not that cheap apparently, can be even more expensive than Advanti or Konig.

Wah that Konig is quite impressive in terms of specs. Looks quite nice too. Flow formed as well! Half the price of RPF1? GOT OR NOT? 15" RPF1 is around RM2.2k~2.5k. So the Konig is RM1.3k?

I am comparing the 17x8.5/9jj sizes. New Konig Hypergram 17x9jj et35 only rm2.1k at King Of Rims, new RPF1 17x8.5jj et30-35 is already rm5k or even higher.

My Sparco Pro Corsa caused me RM2.9K (special price) for 18 8.5J, light as fxxk compared to Mitsubishi original 18" wheels.

That's good price. Konig Hypergram of the same size is even cheaper though, less than rm2.5k, and probably even lighter than that Sparco.

Stock wheels are usually very heavy. Evo 9 wheels size 17x8 et38 is already over 9kg/pc while Evo X Enkei 18x8.5jj is around 10kg/pc. Toyota Mark X/Lexus IS250 18x8.5 are even heavier at 11+kg/pc. My Hypergram 17x9 et35 is only 7.9kg on the spec sheet but when I tested weighing them it's closer to 7-7.5kg so pretty close to RPF1.

Ya man, really excellent value for money those Konig. Advanti Storm DST are also similar prices I think. Only few much more aggressive sizes like lower than et25 and over 9jj for wide fender cars are a bit high prices around 3-3.5k for 18' cuz probably they don't import as many.

I am going mainly for its looks and ability to clear my big brake kit. I think the Sparco weights about 23 pounds without tyres. It was plenty light compared to stock so that's an improvement haha.

23lbs is normal cast type weight for 18' so still heavy, same like original Toyota 18' rims. Konig Hypergram only weighs around 18+lbs for 18'.

I am not sure about that, but my original Lancer GT rims are fxxking heavy compared to this Sparco. Wonder how heavy as the original rims.

Actually I doubt the Sparco is as heavy as 23lbs if it's much lighter than the stock Lancer 18'. I suspect it's closer to 20lbs and the Lancer stock rims should be around 23-24lbs.

If you’re happy and you know it hog some rims

Put all 4 pieces on the floor with some rubber pads from Mr.DIY. Get a piece of laminated glass with about 5mm thickness minimum, put rubber pads between rims & floor as well as rims & glass. Viola you’ve got the perfect coffee table.

You can ask other people, can you race your coffee table?

I've sold many of my unused stuff la, turbo, manifolds, exhausts, intake, rims and tires etc2. Only left things I plan to use or nobody wants already. Need money to partially cover for other parts I still want.

Well i got the weight info from Sparco's website. In real life when i lifted it, it's really which can i use both to do laterial raise easily. The original rims on the other hand, i can't even lift it with one hand easily. Have to jerk abit to lift it up.
