Difference between Advan RS & RZ?

Can someone please explain the differences between the 2 wheels? I've searched and can't find any significant difference between the 2. Thanks.

I think the RZ is made for 1 series fitment, while the RS comes in M3 fitment.

Nope...I have the ADVAN RZ-DF's on my M3 and they are specifically made for the car....big difference is that the RZ's are 1 piece forged aluminum and a more aggressive lip than the RS...also the pattern of the star and number of spokes is different too.

The Advan RZ is different from the RZ-DF. The RZ doesn't have a lip and looks just like the RS but I can't find out what is different. Maybe the first reply was correct that it is specifically made for the 1 series.

The RS and RZ actually have a different spoke pattern. It's slight but the RS has an even spoke pattern all around while the RZ actually has like pairs of "V"s if that makes sense.

i had this question a while back too and now i know the difference.
i felt stupid not noticing the differences because im usually good and spotting out different deatils.

the difference is that the RS is a perfect 10 spoke wheel
while the RZ is more like a split 5 spoke wheel

RS


RZ
