Always liked those wheels even if they are cast.

That's the problem with those wheels. Light, but extremely soft (due to being cast and not forged) and most were bent/cracked after time on the street. I'd definitely want a professional wheel guy to look them over and fix up those huge chunks missing from the outer edge.

You're going to have some coin in them though by the time all is done, so make sure they are still worth it after that point.

​​​​​​​Shouldn't it be safe if the powercoating is done at lower temps?

ya thankfully i got them super cheap, even after getting them painted, i would've still have spent much lower than market value

plus the rarity of the size and offset of these. After everything is said and done, i should be able to make a profit if i were to sell

If I'm not wrong these are made by Enkei and are MAT tech, no?

If I were you, I'd get those repaired and refinished.
https://www.instagram.com/devilswerk/ is good at this.
get them the color of your choice
then get the advan replacement stickers for those wheels. https://www.instagram.com/mrmdecals/ can help with that.

Enkei didn't start that process until maybe mid/late 00's? The early Advans were definitely old-school cast. That's why you don't see many of them around anymore and when you do, they are usually trashed.

I don't know why there's a market for those wheels TBH. Maybe for show cars only, but for street wheels...no thanks.

I have no idea about the later ones. I'm sure Advan improved their process. The early ones though...stay far, far away.

I’ve had 3 sets myself. All were perfectly intact. NSX spec(16/17), 18” and 16”.

Have you ever owned a set Todd?

Yep, sure did. Set of 16" gold ones. Anything else you'd like to know?

After I had those, I didn't want anymore. It was purely Volk and SSR after that.

FWIW, 4x100 16" Advan's in a Honda friendly offset were rare as hell back then.

Brice, don't bother, nothing is good enough for Todd. He claimed my RGIII were outdated trash when I bought them (the wheel had been out for like 3 years at that point?), his disdain for everything is boundless.

My RG I held air fine, 17x8.5 +31. Kinda wish I'd kept them but I'm happier with my RGIII.
