I planning to upgrade my rim size to 19" ( frm 18 ) kana sot by the vossen cv3 chrome rim, getting the replica 1 as only replica avail in 19 and original 1 shld be kan pua expensive lol.

 

Any recommended tyres for street driving with good wet grip? My prev car on 15/16" so popular tyres for me was toyo t1r etc, but fren told me big tyres mostly another level ( price also another level )

 

Was thinking to do "staggered" as car is RWD so behind put wider. heard mark X very prone to fishtail even when driving normal speed so hoping wider tyres can grip well.

Bridgestone S04, S001, RE050A give good grip but can be noisy and wear out quite fast according to my ownership experience. Toyo T1R is soft walled and so more comfortable but unless low-profile is doing to roll a bit during cornering.

 

My favorite tyre is european made Goodyear F1 Asymmetric which to me is a good compromise of wet grip, dry weather comfort and road noise on my Legacy GT

Hello, I'm intending to change my 19x8j offset 38 rims to another set of 19x8.5j offset 38 rims while maintaining my current set of tyres. Would my wheels jut out even more because it's 0.5" wider even with the same tyres.

Sorry to ride on this thread as I am currently unable to start new topics (newbie). 

 

I am currently exploring rim choices as I am looking to upgrade to 18" rims. 

 

Have been advised to stay away from "replicas" due to quality/safety concern. 

 

After doing some research, this rims called "ATS Radial" has caught my attention. From the website, its a European brand with factories in Germany and Poland. 

 

Anyone tried these rims before? How is its quality and durability?

 

 

Looking at this model, http://www.atswheels...tfolios/radial/

 

Based on my research, seems like this is only one reseller in Singapore for this brand?

 

Lastly, is a matte finish on rim less durable compared to a glossy finish?

 

 

Thanks.

Most rims quality are acceptable and good even if made in Taiwan.. Normally european made rims are much stronger n tough compared to jap rims.. But expensive jap rims always go for light weight.

Glosssy n matt doesn't affect the lifetime.. It's how u take care of them.

Staggered is a good choice for RWD.. Use 235/35/19 n 265/30/19 or 245/35/19 n 275/30/19.

I woukd recommend Goodyear Assy which is made in Germany.. Good overall performer. Great value for money without compromising safety

buying new rim to be is a 1 time investment sound  easy work.

I normally go for something that is Reliable (no need to be best )

how to tell is it reliable ?

Brand , Business do branding is Quality Assurance ( especially those with own production facility , they are looking at long term)

I like to use Safety Factor

Quality Branded rim has a Higher Safety factor in general,

Tks.

Hi,

 

My stock rim is 6.5j x 17 ET 49 using 205/55R17 and recommanded 18" is 7.5j x 18 ET46 using 225/45ZR18

 

Have been to some shops and most just mentioned 5 x 108 and was given a few choice of rims to choose from. But non of the sales actually mention anything about offsets. (altho I did not ask about the offset too)

 

I had seen online of a rim i liked but it is 5 x 108 ET40? Would I be able to use it? Or do i necessary have to stick with et46?

 

Thanks in advance.

Tire size comparison tool:http://www.1010tires...Size-Calculator

offset calculator: http://www.1010tires...fset-Calculator

 

Based on the recommended size, inner clearance will reduce by 1cm & protrude by 1.6cm.

 

If 7.5J ET 40, will protrude by 2.2cm.

My experience is with 16 to 17, one size up with additional 10mm et and fender rub like no tomorrow. Changed to 42 (or maybe 45), problem solved.

 

 

Right off my mind, one size up with additional 9mm offset seems a lot to me. But then again, this differs from car to car. Use the online calculator that David provided and measure the clearance on your ride.

myfirstkar

please google to ATS website you probably know more about their Company and products

I think they come under the Wheel group call Uniwheel group Germany.(beside ats also have Rial / Alutec/ Anzio )

davidtch

are you driving a French car (correct me if I am wrong)?

I supposed your info is from Original Equipment

OE wheels specification is what CAr maker recommended spec, most(not all) After market wheels don't follow that , 

aftermarket wheel maker wants to make the wheel sits more flush with the car.

for tires size I will strongly recommend to follow whats car maker recommend (best)

Thanks. if I used the calculator correctly, inner clearance is 4mm less and Outer extends an extra 22mm.

 

a) is there a rule of thumb +/- % of offset that a person should go?

b) Other than fitting on the actual rim/tire, how to check if it will rub the fender? If on existing 17" and I measure 22mm and it is still within the fender, does that means it is acceptable?

c) Any negative impact of going an offset other than manufacturer recommandation? Shorten lifespan of absorber etc?

just be aware that a different offset from factory spec will introduce camber change even if the new rim/tyre combo fits into the fenders

significant camber changes could potentially shorten your tyre lifespan and affect the the shock absorbers ability to work properly

you decide if you want to take that risk and go in with your eyes open

c) Any negative impact of going an offset other than manufacturer recommandation? Shorten lifespan of absorber etc?

a) No, as long as it fits.

b) For rear wheels, as long as it fits into the fender, or fender covers the wheel when you have a full load or rear passengers, you are clear. For front wheels, you can ask the seller to jack your car up, mount one of the front wheels and full turn your steering wheel to make sure no rubbing while doing full turn.

c) Personally, no. But upsizing will increase FC and decrease ride quality.

 

Some will say aftermarket rims have weaker structural integrity. I have tried both Jap and TW rims and both are okay. Just don't blindly drive into potholes thinking your rims can take the impact.

a) yes , if you want everything Original factory specification, follow OE offset

b) No 100% answer for this, even trying with car lifted up is still no 100% 

    you want 100% (1) use only original (2) ask the seller you want 100% clear (3) you try at your own

c) yes is the answer for any changes from original

But not always Negative

wheel offset number reduced (smaller ) will make the wheel more flush with your fender

and this could(not 100%) shorten (not damaged) the Life span of shock absorber , wheel bearing ,  

just MHO
