Here’s How To Distinguish Original and Replica Rims

DAPURPACU – Modification matters indeed require quality workmanship for their products. In the sense that the vehicle owner requires the authenticity of the product to be installed.

It is undeniable that in the market there are many various modified products circulating, which sometimes in terms of appearance, replica goods have similarities with the original.

Rims, for example, are the components or products most targeted by vehicle owners, especially cars in the early modifications. Many choices are available in the market, both original, replica or TW.

But for car owners who want to save money, the choice of replica or TW rim models is usually the most sought after. The phenomenon of replica rims has been widely discussed in the past few years.

There are clearly quite a lot of users, and indeed no one forbids using it. Then what distinguishes the two?

Replica rims are rims that are produced as closely as possible to the original rims, starting from the model, logo, to the name itself. The TW rim itself is another name for the replica rim, the meaning is the same, namely the duplicated rim.

The word TW is an abbreviation of Taiwan, where the country is indeed known as a country that manufactures replica rims of various well-known brands.

While the original rim is a rim which in terms of design, name, logo is made by the brand itself. There is no element of duplication because of the design and production of each internal team.

“The build quality is certainly more guaranteed,” said the Marketing Director of HSR Wheel, Hendra Wijaya, in a written statement, Monday (12/7).

Hendra recommends that components related to driving safety should not be replaced or modified modestly, in order to pursue a cooler appearance.

Although after that the car will look attractive, the security sector is the victim. Even this, according to him, will create greater losses in the future.

“The rim is one of the components that support the safety and security of passengers in the car. That’s why the process of making rims cannot be done haphazardly, everything must be carefully calculated,” he said.

“It is better to avoid using replica rims which are risky. Even though it is safe in the pocket, it is not necessarily safe to be invited to wander. Moreover, the use of daily use, remain careful, “continued Hendra.

According to him, there are two main factors that differentiate between replica and original rims. Usually the difference is seen from the price and also the quality.

Generally, replica rims are cheaper than the original, because they involve many processes from concept design, material research, strength testing, to production.

This stage is very time consuming and expensive. While the replica only duplicates the original rim design and is reproduced using the casting method in order to suppress a lower price.

The second factor is the quality side. In order to reduce costs, replica rims usually tend to compromise on materials, production methods, quality control, and less neat finishing than the original ones.

HSR Original Design

“So, if there is an original and quality with SNI, JWL, VIA standards such as HSR Original, it would be better to use the original, right?” Henry claims.

For information, the original Indonesian car rim brand, HSR has an Original Design called HSR Original, part of the HSR Wheel which is devoted to containing original designs from HSR.

Currently, HSR Original already has several series of rims with original designs made and implemented by HSR Wheel’s own R&D team. There are several types offered such as Myth Series, NX Series, Boroko Series, Invation Series, RAI-S Series.

In the near future, HSR Wheel will launch a new variant which they call the FE Series. Some are produced by the casting method, and some by the forging method.

In terms of price, of course, this type of casting has a cheaper price than forged. Because the manufacturing process itself is different.

Hendra claims that the HSR Kailolo from the NX Series, the HSR Myth 05 from the Myth Series, and the HSR Gymkana from the Boroko Series are original wheels that are loved by many car owners.

HSR RAI S-series

“With quality manufacturing capability, of course, the community will get satisfaction in accordance with their expectations,” added Hendra.
