How would you rate these rims...

For daily driving use on fair/bumpy roads?

I would LOVE to roll on some Volks, Rays, Works, or some other high dollar roller, but I doubt that is going to happen this summer.

Basically what I'm asking is, anyone who has experience with these companies, what was your overall impression of the quality, value, and performance of their products? The ones I've been looking at include:

5Zigen, Tenzo, Motegi, SSW, and Konig.

Bronze Tenzo's


Gold 5Zigen's


Gold 5Zigen's


Gold Konig's


Gold Konig's


Gold Motegi's


Gold Motegi's


I am kinda wanting to go with a gold/bronze 5/6 spoke design. Obviously, the perfect wheel would be a gold/bronze TE37, but I'm not made of money, so that isn't going to happen for a while. I have found the look I like with a few of the afforementioned companies, but I'm just worried about the quality and performance you get out of these "cheaper" companies.

Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks team.

Re: How would you rate these rims...

5Zigen is the way to go as far as quality and performance. The other companies you mentioned for the most part make much cheaper and heavier rims. Konig actually used to make a TE37 rip off called the Rated-R that I was gonna pick up but then I realized their 16s weighed almost 18 pounds each. :(

Re: How would you rate these rims...

Fuuuuck that. Finally someone with good input on the quality/performance of these companies. I kinda figured 5Zigen would be the way to go since all their **** is a little more expensive.

Anyone ever use Speedy wheels? I mean theyre about as cheap as it gets but Im not too worried about weight. Im mainly just worried about how well they hold up against cracking and bending and all.

Re: How would you rate these rims...

I would love to keep my Shoguns even though they are way too heavy, but they won't work with open-ended external drive lugs. I can't stand ****ty lugnuts like these: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Wheel...Q5fAccessories because you can't use extended lugs with em'. Yes, I'm getting new rims because I can't use external-drive lugs with my current ones.

The 5Zigen FN01R or whatever the **** it is looks pretty good.

Re: How would you rate these rims...

i'm biased on my opinion because I love my motegi's.. 14 lb 17's track lites..

I used to have the 19's but needed to go smaller for my coil-overs.. right before the swap the ass-bag road crew in my town was fixing the freeway.. resurfacing in sections and usually they will ramp up from low sections to the new section but they didn't the night I was driving on it and hit a 90 angle about 1 to 2 inches high doing 65 and it tweeked one of my front rims.. not sure how it didn't **** them all up but that is the only problem I ever had with them..

Re: How would you rate these rims...

I would rock 16's most likely, but they sound pretty durable. I've had that **** happen with my Shogun's but luckily it was just an impact break on the tire. How much do Track Lites normally run?

Re: How would you rate these rims...

Track Lites are a lot more than I thought they'd be lol. I could get Volks/Rays rollers for like $200 more. Anyone know if you can use external-drive open-ended lugs with Enkei RPF1's?
