Default Konig Runaway

Want to see what you guys think about Konig Runaway wheels. Is it a good, strong wheel? They look similar to Rota SVN. Which is a better wheel?

Thanks!

They're not a very good wheel. Both the Rota SVN and the Konig, are knock offs of the Volk RE30.

I've had both, and I'd suggest getting the real thing if it's within your budget. I've busted 3 Konig wheels doing nothing but daily driving. If you don't have that kinda cash, go Rota.

I like my SVN's, got them from SubyDude. Running 18x8.5, the steering is noticeably stiffer than the STi stockers. Needed to roll the rears a bit. The wheels themselves have no problems. I can't see paying 4x the cost for the 'real thing', not when I have so many other exciting things to spend money on.

I've never ran the Konig Runaway so I can't comment on the quality of the wheel.

I have ran the Rota SVN on my car and can say they are great wheels. Quality is awesome, light weight, and they look great on the car. Also on Nasioc I have seen a lot of cars with the Rota SVN and no complaints/issues which shows it's definitely a proven wheel.
