How to Differentiate Between Original Rims and Replica Rims

When buying rims, you will find original rims and replica rims sold widely in the market. Original rims or also known as aftermarket rims, are rims that are created by authorized companies for consumers who want to enhance the looks as well as the performance of their car.

Meanwhile, replica rims are a copy of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and aftermarket rims that are sold for a fraction of the original price while claiming to be at least 90% similar to its original counterpart.

It is important to be able to differentiate between the two rims so that you can avoid being scammed into paying full price for a replica rim. Here’s how you can differentiate between an original rim and a replica rim.

The ‘Made in …’ Stamp

For most original rims, especially the ones that are from Japan, there will be a ‘Made in Japan’ stamp on the outside and the inside of the rim, along with a production sticker to prove the authenticity of the rim.

On the other hand, when it comes to replica rims, the stamp and production sticker is not usually present. But if it is available, the quality of the stamp and print is usually a bit blurry and messy.

Difference in Craftsmanship

When you compare an original rim with a replica rim side by side, you’ll see that the originalrims are superior in terms of finish and color. Original rims have a brighter color and a shinier finish compared to replica rims which usually will come in a washed out color and a dull finish.

Original Rims vs Replica Rims – Which One is For You

When choosing a rim, you may be wondering if you should buy original rims or replica rims for your car. Here are two factors that you should consider when deciding on your purchase.

Budget

Before deciding to buy the most stylish rim you can find for your car, it’s important to determine your budget first. A budget is crucial in order to help you decide what kind of rim you can afford to buy and if you should go for a brand new rim or a used one instead.

For example, a brand new, original 18 inch Advanti Hybris rim is sold at around RM3,280 per set. You can get a used one for between RM2,000 and RM1,500, depending on its condition.

Safety

Before buying any type of car accessories, it is important to consider if the accessory is safe for your car. When it comes to buying rims, you also must take into account your driving style, road condition, and your car type, to make sure you will choose the right rim for your car.

Original rims have gone through a detailed research process before being sold on the market. This is because it is designed to survive various types of driving and weather conditions as well as to ensure its durability. While replica rims are mostly safe to use, it is recommended that you always be alert and cautious since it may not have gone through the same quality control program as its original equivalent.

In a nutshell, choosing a good sport rim is not just about considering the quality of the rim or its brand, you also need to take into account other factors such as your car type, your budget, and your personal preference when it comes to choosing a rim design.
