Need some info in buying rims

Post by kramykram on Thu 17 Dec 2009, 10:14 am

Need advice para dun sa sanay na bumili ng rims para sa motor. Current rim ko is yung stock para sa XRM RS 125 meron na mga damage kadadaan sa McArthur Hi-way (grabe ang mga lubak dyan) pero buti na lang medyo naayus pa nung nag pa-align ako nung isang araw at ngayon nagbabalak na ko palitan yung 2 rim at eto ang aking mga katanungan:

Ano brand ang maganda if I choose na mag-Mags o yung may spoke?
Nasa magkano ang isang set (front and rear)?

sir kramykram,
having new rims ay depende sa taste mo at function ng bike, ako currently using mags at naka tube less, but i just like to share some pointers to remember at maybe makatulong sayo kung ano maging final decision mo.
kung madalas ka sa rough road its definitely spoke type ang needs mo, yan ay naka design na may maliliit na movements para mag absorb ng impact sa lubak, so i wonder kung ano ang tama ng old rims mo at gusto mona palitan kasi kahit may kupi na yan di yan basta bibigay, meaning normal lang yung bumps and scratches at yung regular na mag pa align ay normal lang yun as maintenance procedures. yung alloy na spoke type as far as i know ay maninipis ang mga lumabas at marami nako nabalita na mas madali mabengkong kumpara sa steel, its basically porma lang pero functionality ay iiwanan ka, having alloy parts ay para makabawas ng weight, the lighter your vehicle - the lesser your engine stressed. Ang advantage ko sa mags ay pwede ako mag tube less, di agad dumadapa kahit may butas at pwede mo hanginan muna kung wala sa area mo vulcanizing. i remember na natatamad lang ako mag pa vulcanized dati pero tuwing umaga ay binobombahan ko lang ng hangin ang gulong ko at tumagal ako sa ganong sitwasyon ng mahigit 1 month. during ride naman na gusto mo mas secure ka ay meron ako tools na pang pasak at kahit ginunting na interior lang ang baon ko ay wala ako masyado inaalala sa flat.
of course sa pag bili ay karaniwan mas mahal ay mas durable, wag ka papa intimidate sa looks lang at mura, yung isang friend ko nakabili ng mags 2,500 set, kaso after a while ay nabasag ang kinakabitan ng bearing, pina machine shop tapos nabasag uli, ayun napamura tuloy sya at bumili na lang ng another set worth 4k, kung iisipin ay magkano kaya nagastos nya sa pag iisip lang na maka mura.
lastly you have to consider the size of your tire,, baka naman pang sprint race ang gusto mong set-up tapos sa Mc Arthur ang regular na dinadaanan mo...
enjoy riding sir at ingat palagi sa daan.

mukang mas inclined ako sa pag gamit ng rims kasi madalas ako dumadaan sa hindi magandang mga daan. Sa sinabi mo mukang ok pa naman yung rims ko kung normal lang na magkaroon sya sa deformation at naayus lang sa pag align. Meron kasi kupi yung sa front rim ko na hindi nakuha sa pukpok at sa pag higpit ng rayos at ang sabi ng nag-align ay nasa "dugtungan" yung tama ng rim kaya medyo napaisip ako na magpalit.

regarding sa sprint race setup na gulong ito ba yung mga maninipis na size? haha mahina ako sa ganitong mga terminologies. Yung stock tires kasi ng motor ko medyo manipis kaya pag nalulubak kahit maliit na lubak talagang nararamdaman ko kaya pag nagpalit ng rim magpapalit din ako ng size ng gulong na medyo malapad ng kaunti.

@ kramy

pre kung yupi na ang lips ng rim mo at lalo na kung doon pa natapat sa dugtungan
mejo mahirap na nga ibalik iyan

mura lang mga stock rim kung ganyan pa din gusto mo gamitin baka 200 pesos makakuha tayo niyan
pero kung gusto mo ng mamahalin iyon mga aluminum mejo pricey ito budget ka ng around 2K dito

tama sabi ni sir aujhotech kung sa klase ng road condition mo hindi adviceable sa iyo mag mags once mayupi iyan pangit na marepair pa mas OK ang rim type baka mahilot pa sa pag align ng rayos lang
