I know many of you have these rims on your IS300's.

My question is... Other than the name, and possoble color choices on the wheels what are the differences between these two?

Here are pics...

Advan AVS


Exel Ennios



TIA.

quality issues

Excel is a knock off wheel company they don't have all the "specifics" that AVS uses to make wheels

the difference is, one if you hit a pot hole doing 70+ miles on the highway one of them will bust wide open and you have to buy one wheel to replace that.

two, its heavy, so the car handling would be suck.

look wise

at the lug area, exel has the circle cut out and advan doesnt have one as deep.

the spacing from the lugs to the double spoke...exel have more wheel than the advans.

its been a while since i have seen the 2 up close.

Considering the wheel was def. inspired by the AVS wheels

Excell did a decent job at the design

to get a copyright on a "wheel" there has to ba a 5% deffierence to get a "copyright" or to produce them

definitely the built quality.

the Advan is going to be lighter and stronger.
Advan Racing's AVS Model 5 has MAT process rim and is lightweight in design.
MAT = 'Using a flow-formed process, the center of the wheel is actually cast while the outer rim section is spun formed. Lighter than conventional casting and almost as strong as a forged wheel, Advan went with a longer, more dramatic, spoke design over its predecessor and cast a 3D logo in-between the spokes'

while ennios are cast.
