    Tyre width for 17x8jj

    Hi all gurus, I am driving a HRV and had my wheel changed from the original stock 215/60/16 to 225/50/17. I was told by agent that this is wrong fitting The tyre shop (popular S***F*** Tyre) sold me 17x8jj, offset 42 which I was also told by many that 215/55/17 should be my correct size, and the rim should be 17x7jj or 17x7.5jj. Hoping to get some opinions from gurus here. 225/50/17 is even smaller in overall diameter than 215/60/16, i upsized my rim but my wheel became smaller. Joke lol!
  3. BBS wheels reportedly files for bankruptcy in Germany source: https://uk.motor1.com/news/434607/bbs-wheels-bankruptcy-germany/ The wheel manufacturer should stick to business-as-usual for now. 2020 has been a difficult year for most companies, and that’s putting it lightly. 2020 has been a tough year for everyone, and the financial fallout from coronavirus will most definitely take some companies down for the count. In the automotive realm, one of these companies could be BBS, which is reportedly facing bankruptcy. This would be the third time the German-based custom wheel manufacturer has been in hock. In 2007 the company went through bankruptcy and was ultimately purchased by a Belgium company. Another bankruptcy occurred a few years later, and as of 2015, a South Korean company called Nice Corp was the majority stakeholder. Autoevolution reports the current financial crisis for BBS is the result of an “unexpected disappearance of promised payments,” according to a statement allegedly from BBS. Exactly what that means is unclear. A report from Motor Illustrated offers a bit more insight. The bankruptcy filing is apparently in Germany only, with diminished demand and halted production due to COVID-19 being the reasons. The move is similar to a Chapter 11 filing in the United States, which means BBS shouldn’t simply disappear. Rather, it’s a reorganizing that, in theory, will allow the company to continue operation. As such, the report says BBS will continue normal operations for now. How this will affect BBS in the US is unclear at this point. The manufacturer has a deal with NASCAR to supply single-lug wheels for the next-generation cars in the series. Yes, that means no more twenty-lug ballets with pit crew teams during four-tyre pit stops. It also means the days of black 15-inch steelies on the cars are over, as BBS offerings are said to be 18-inch aluminium wheels. It’s doubtful that deal alone will pull BBS out of the financial fire, but having a bit more publicity with America’s premier motorsport certainly shouldn’t hurt.

    TSW wheel vs OZ hlt

    Any comment on this? Tsw is higher in terms of price.
  5. Hello all, Just to seek some opinions and advise from MCF members and experience professional. I've just committed to an AD for a new car, and here comes my dilemma... The car comes with a 18' matte/silver colored rims and I do not like the color. I've always been fan of shinny chrome rims as it is easy to clean and wash daily. Is it advisable to purchase a new set of chrome rims (same size 18') and use back the tyres, or it is better to keep the OEM rims and have them chromed so that the performance is not wrongly compromised by the newly purchased chrome rims? If the latter is true, then where in SG can get this service for chroming the rims? TIA
  6. Hi, i notice now a lot of new mid size sedan is equipped with bigger rims. All looks at least 17inch. Example, the older K3, cerato 2018, And i see the New Avante 2019 also no more 15 inch rim. Those Mazda 3 also looks to have bigger rim and tyres.... Or was i wrong?
  7. Normally size use term 'ET', how to know whether positive or negative offset? Is stock wheel normally positive?

    OZ HyperGT HLT review

    Hi Friends ! Thinking of getting OZ HyperGT HLT to replace my current stock rims (MERC W205) https://www.ozracing.com/alloy-wheels/oz-racing/i-tech/hypergt-hlt Will like to hear your comments or thought on it ... 1) some people commented that OZ wheels (Hyper GT) may not be able to support the weight of W205 (Curb weight 1,635 kg) for discussion, 4 Adults - 85kg each, with 2 travel luggage (40KG) - total 2015kg (exclude tyres) how / where can i find the max weight that OZ GT can support? roughly how much buffer should I give? 2) also some say OZ wheels hit pot holes sure GG, is there any truth to it? or just urban legends? many thanks!

    Shipping USA Rims

    Anyone tried buying USA rims via Amazon and shipping via 3rd party shipping agent like ezbuy? From my calulations it seems like I can save more than $2000 even with declared GST.

    BBS....RI-A Rims.

    Hi Gurus,is 18" BBS RI-A Forged Rims good.?It is Made in Japan instead of Germany...
  14. I came across a brand of rims called 'Forged'. Very literal. Not sure if the rims are actually cast or forged. Very curious about this brand as I cannot find anything about it online. Is there anyone who knows any info on this brand of rims?
  15. Hi: Advice needed. Currently my Jap sedan (Nissan Slyphy) car is on stock 195/60/r16. Other than petrol increase, will there be any other impact if I will change to the above R17 rim & tires? Thank you!
  16. i call all the famous ones and the freelancers one, all of them will not remove the tyre from the rim to respray. neither will they remove the calipers to spray. i was wondering if anyone has a contact to a professional who can spray paint in that manner.
  17. Hi all, Does anyone have any experience with rim protectors, something like RimPro-Tec, and do they work? I am wondering if they can really protect larger rims with low profile tyres, or whether the protection they offer is insignificant. https://www.sgcarmart.com/products/overview.php?ID=6399 Thanks in advance. Naresh.
