I never said they were trash (although I'm not a fan of the early models like I had). I only made fun of your lust for the ricers of yore.

Still, at least my opinions are formed on actual 1st hand working knowledge as opposed to what someone told me or what I read somewhere on the internet.

They (early models) were what I'd call a "fragile" wheel, yes. The very similar SSR Type-C's (Comp's as they were called here) were much stronger and lighter and were, at that time, easily ordered via Tirerack.

Dawg Type C's have a rep for bending too. My good friend has bent a couple of his in the past.

Every wheel, whether they have a rep for fragility or not is going to give at some point.

I heard the same thing, especially in the larger 17 and 18in sizes, although I did buy 2 cracked and bent SSR Comps that were repairable and they balance fine, but I've had them on my integra in 15x7 and they've been holding up ::knocks on wood:: B

There have been reports, yes. But as was said, mainly in the larger sizes and if one ran a super small sidewall tire. Still, their forging process made them a stronger wheel. There were a lot more of them on the road than the Advan's though. At this point they are quite old and TBH I would be leery of any used wheel from that era.

Personally, I've had at least 8 different sets of Type C's in the past 20-ish years and not bent a one of them. I literally had a Type C on every single Honda/Acura I owned during the 90's and 00's.

That looks good. Didn't take them long at all.

Is the "fix" as strong as the surrounding areas? I.E. will a hack tire mounter at the local tire place be able to screw it up?

Purple. Deep purple even. Then you can cruise right through that smoke on the water.

I think they make the Advan stickers if you can find someone who will repaint the blue stripe.

it's all paint from the factory right? no stickers?

If it's all paint a good shop can mask it.

Otherwise, just repaint the white area and call it good!

Welp

The OG paint was too far gone to keep in any sort of way. Decided to get it powdercoated

When i was there to drop it off, I decided to do something a little different since redoing the OG colorway wasnt an option without a lot more work

So i decided on mag blue with white decals
