Just wondering why drivers changed the car RIM from original RIM to after market RIM that is softer and lower quality. Because as I know that those RIM are soft and easily bent or even crack. But why

* I've no comment on those change from ORI RIM to higher quality RIM Because an upgrade is better.

His claims are real. Changed 2 sets of ori advanti rims there. Reasonable pricing too. From what I've seen at his store, his new rims are all originals, no replicas.

As to why people changed to lower quality replicas, must be for looks I assume. But then again, there are some good quality replicas nowadays, especially from Thailand.

Saw one company from Thailand (forgot its name) selling volk replicas. Looks very similar to ori, weighs 5.5kg for 15". But the price was reaching 900 for rims alone. Might as well top up a bit more and get ori advanti/lenso/konig/enkei tuning rims.

Alloy wheels always look GOOD compared to original wheels because of sportier outlook and probably lighter too.
Nevertheless, I still opt for original TRD wheels. by Enkai and just plastic DIP for different colour.

OEM Vs Replica Wheels: Myths and Facts
Many of Malaysian and other countries drivers like to upgrade their car’s OEM wheels to replica wheels to enhance their car’s outlook.

We may have seen a lot sellers selling low prices on replica wheels or replica rims everywhere. Most of replica wheels come from China, Taiwan, Thailand as well as our own local product, Malaysia. One may wonder what the different between these replica wheels and OEM wheels.

For those who not sure what is OEM, it’s mean Original Equipment Manufacturer, authorized companies that makes parts for the car manufacturer.

Often OEM wheels are much more expensive than replica wheels even though some replica wheels are much more stylish than OEM wheels.

Let see primary goals of OEM wheels:

Ability to properly support the weight of the vehicle and it’s passengers.
Durability from road salts, car wash acids, chemical and etc.
Durability in order to minimize warranty claims or recalls.
Proper fitments to ensure vehicles brake system as well as suspension operate as designed and without vibration.
Durability from road hazards such as potholes.
OEM wheels go through millions of kilometers of testing and millions dollars in research and development in order to ensure the wheels withstand the rigors of everyday driving.

Let see primary goals of replica wheels:

Ensure lowest manufacturing cost possible; which they will be using cheapest materials to forge the wheels)
Fit a wide variety of model vehicles (changing wheel widths and offsets)
They don’t go through proper research and development (R&D), simply to minimize the manufacturing cost from their side.

Myth #1: Replica wheels as strong as OEM wheels.
Fact #1: Replica wheels are weaker and more likely to get bend and cracked compared to OEM wheels. Replica wheels using cheap, more porous materials and cheaper manufacturing method called as graitiy casting. The molten aluminium is simply poured into a mold and allowed it to cool off. OEM wheels using different methods of manufacturing where after the molten aluminium is poured, there will be a pressure apply on the aluminium.

Result, OEM wheels have higher density of the materials base compared to the replica wheels.

Myth #2: Replica wheels will fit your car just as well as a factory wheels.
Fact #2: Replica wheels will cause a major vibration to the vehicle and also rub on the suspension or brake parts since no fitment testing was done on the particular vehicles.

Myth #3: Replica wheels have the same durable finish as a OEM wheels.
Fact #3: Replica wheels did not go through any test to withstand the road salts, chemicals and other element as OEM wheels do. Thus replica wheels’ finish wont last as OEM wheels do.

Now you know why replica wheels are much cheaper compared to OEM wheels 🙂

You must know exactly the details of the original that you want so that can spot the fakes when buying. One of the easiest is also to detect the weight but this is only valid when buying those lightweight rims. For example those fake RE30/TE37/CE28/RPF1/CP035/Regamaster/SSR Type-C etc2, the fakes will never be as light as the original because the fakes uses normal casting manufacturing method while the original are either using forged process or semi forged or MAT which are much more expensive to make the rims strong yet much lighter than normal cast rims. That's why when buying those rims, bring your weighing scale! That's what I did when buying mine, apart from doing research to know how the original should look and how much they weigh. However if you just want to buy normal cast rims but original then cannot detect by the weight because the fakes will also be about similar, so in this case you can only detect by the minute details of appearance which can be more difficult.

Another method is try to avoid those very popular rims like some I mentioned above. They got so many fakes because they're very popular models. Fake producers surely want to capitalize only on the popular models so can easily sell. If you go for not so popular models then it reduces the chance of getting fakes. For example all of my rims are/were not so popular ones and actually quite rare: Prodrive GC07, Volk Racing F-Winning Zero, 5Zigen N1R Becketts, Yokohama AVS model 7. All of them are old rims some more but I still like them so when buying I'm not too worried about getting fakes.

Btw for Vossen, they only make size 19' above so ALL those that you see on the road which are smaller than 19' are 100% fakes.

Very good advice. May I know which shops that you trust for original. To already know the model I seek I think I need a few days to look through the original rim catalogue and do some reading for sure.

the reason is rip off, buyers dont know much about rim quality so they assume any rim will work and many dealers/garages will also rip off customers. Just read the low yat forum and you can see plenty of questions/complaints about customer paying too much or low amount and getting fake parts instead of genuine.

if you can do it yourself i suggest you order from manufacturer, you can order the parts direct but it requires finding and doing a bit of research and going to manufacturer website. Plenty of good quality rim manufacturers, some even in malaysia itself as they use them on many cars that are assembled in malaysia. Many people dont know how to research to find genuine parts and branded dealers will charge you far too much for the same thing with their name on it.

If you know a mechanic you trust, definitely do it through them, otherwise you have to research and find it yourself. If you get a fake one and it breaks, it can break something more expensive. malaysia is full of bad roads that its pretty much like rallying so fake ones can be devestating.

In the end the fakes end up costing you more. Still plenty of OEM/genuine parts manufacturer, some in malaysia. To make a car, the parts get made in their individual factories and are shipped to assembly plants, so if you can figure out which companies/manufacturers make the rims that they use in cars, or for OEM/genuine aftermarket parts, you can then order direct from them.

Still with our bad roads its important to avoid fakes/low quality rims. Sadly our buying power just cannot compare to other countries when it comes to cars and parts cry.gif . Low priced cars also get turned into luxury cars here in both price and status.

Doesnt have to be made in japan, can be made in malaysia, thailand and so on, as long as its the manufacturer that OEMs and brands use. BMW engines are made in china after all even their high capacity ones so country of origin doesnt matter, only whether or not its what actual car companies, modders and event people use.

To give an example, everyone knows recaro racing seats, they are effective and some cars offer them as options, but for those who corner fast with high Gs are going to need them. They dont come standard in cars but plenty of events and modders use them. I wish i knew some manufacturers to recommend, drop some that you found below.

Also next time someone uses BMW as a status car, laugh at them because their engines are made in china tongue.gif .

Original rims is freaking expensive yo. I encounter one civic turbo change into 18inch rims. Looks like fake rims

Tyre somemore use cheap tyre. Landsail 225/40R18. Seriously bro. Stick with stock rims 215/50R17 that comes with conti mc5 much more good la compare to caplang tyre and rims.

But this is malaysia ma. Yg penting gaya.

I don't know majority who did this way understand the dangerous of unknown content of materials might have impurities or prone to develop hairline crack which eventually might fail one day and the failure might be catastrophic. Rule of thumb, original rims provided by car manufacturers normally may have less chance of failure due to warranty issue. My 2 cents is if can't afford ori, stick to factory one.

Not sure, last few years all my rims I bought second hand direct from owners except 1 which I bought from King of Rims Shah Alam. I think this place is pretty ok, price reasonable but not the cheapest. If you're looking for original value for money rims like Advanti, Lenso, Enkei Tuning, & Konig then this shop has them all. They also sell higher end brands from Japan/Italy, as well as fake ones but seems like they will inform you that those are 'replicas' and not original.

quite easy to spot fake rims when you are purchasing a new set from shop.

usually ori rims have stickers in japanese (white background, blue/black fonts) showing the specs of the rims.

and for my Advan RG2, the "made in japan" sign is stamped at the back of the rims.

fake rims often have "japan design" or similar tag instead of "made in japan".

most fake rims look kinda different than the original design too if you pay enough attention.

Heard this hashtag before? #janjigaya 🙈. A lot of buyer just want the stylish and cheap, most of them doesn't care about quality.

Always support original especially rims because it's the only thing that holds your tyre which contact to the road. #supportoriginal #nofakeshit.

No, too expensive and too many fakes, so even if I use ori, most people will think it's fake. laugh.gif I only have the Volk Racing F-Winning Zero which is also a forged type rims but much cheaper coz old model and not as popular hence no fakes rolling everywhere on the roads also.

I been using Taiwan TE37...5/100pcd - so damn bloody hard to find this spec..been using for 5 years now, still holding strong - passed alignment and balancing all the time. Handling is good too and can't be bothered with how people look at it, as long as I like the design on my car, its fine by me

More than 10 years ago I bought the Enkei GTC01 18" from Quicksave for RM4k+
But they have to pre-order it from Japan though and I had to put deposit first

No shop specifically, i just shop online on whats available & go from there. I notice most shops have same set of "commonly desired by the masses" type rims anyway. So its down to package & location.

I also have weird taste in rims (well, old skool rims on modern cars), so most shops dont have what Im looking for..also cuz I dont have money to buy...but I digress. laugh.gif

You can also add Rota to your choices, order straight from them, just give out the specs.

Rota has is based in the Philippines and has been in the market for more than 30 years.
