Wts or Trade my 17" rim

Post  marcus on Mon Mar 05, 2012 6:08 am

This set of rim was bought direct from Komoco and I have paid $800( with my 16"trade in). Reason of buying from em was kiasu about warranty and in fact the rim looks very attractive. you can view my avatar pics.

My Mileage now is 7000km plus and the thread are still good but a bit of scratch on my rear left wheel because kana the kerb at the mscp when turning..

Reason of selling, i suspecting could be the caused of my high fuel consumption, so I want to downgrade to either 15" or 16" stocks. To be fair, I'm looking to have some cash trade in.

Please PM/SMS 81896388 me to discuss if interested. Thanks

Think I know! Those who know pls Kee Chiu!! Its no secret lar. Put a few couple of Sweet smelling moth ball into the petrol tank and you will see your fuel consumption drop drastically like your fuel bar always stay there for very long period and wont decrease one. LOL

(Its Terry balls and its not for SALE) Haha....

Your front window tint not LTA friendly? Smile can't really see your rims from the small avatar pic but Komodo provides these rims? What brand are they? Anyway nice ride looks like a Lexus IS250.

Thanks bro but I've made up my mind on getting a nice set of Japanese rims from VR for this ride. Anyway no accurate ETA on my ride arrival yet except that it's gonna be mid to late-April.

Btw did you check if your 17" is 7J? 7.5J or 8J, cos even a 0.5 increase in width can affect unsprung mass. My thought is getting a replica 17" X 7J would strike balance between looks and FC.

Get Forge Rim and good Tyres and tha will lighter the weight than 16" and good travel on the road.

Original 16" is more heavier than my previous 17". And a good tyre also make the travel smoother and safter.

Actually the cost for you to get a good and light rims will take you very looooooong time to cover back your fuel cost, imagine to buy a $5k rim just want to have a good fc it's not a good idea. Actually our car fc was not bad already. Wanna save more then better go for MRT or SBS bus hehe. I think me and Zeroi was same kind as we dont look into fc and we like to mod.

Well said.

Actually changing to a lighter rims do save FC, but getting the best design rims will spent more than saving. Anyway most important is stay light on the pedal and everything will be good. E-throttle will help u in fuel save and giving u the extra power by using the full protential of what ur pedal can actuall do.

Afterall, it all about making to what u want by spending a bit more.
Still 18" rims could be lighter than a 16" or equal. So question back is which design u want?

Plan your ride and don't over do. Erm, it all still boil down to ur liking.

On eco mode at your dashboard, don be heavy footer in expressway, enjoy your ride. If u are getting elite model then on the cruise mode @ 70 or 80km speed but abit troublesome... If can don on your air-con and prefer fresh air & wind outside (But most people don to that because too hot in the day time). Enjoy your new ride... Smile
