WHich one is better? Moda R6 or AC Type III

too many people have the Type III, which is why i'm more leaning towards MODA R6. IS MOda R6 rims good, hard, not easily bent. Any pics of Both wheels on M3 are appreciated. Comments?

I've heard that Moda wheels are quite soft (compared to others). What I do know is that they're HEAVY. THe 18" is 27 lbs, and figure about 25 lbs for the 17".

Moda is a wheel company that has sorta faded into the background in recent years. Decent quality, being the bastard step child of BBS. But in my humble opinion the designs just arnt exciting. Plus Id be suprized if they made fitments to fill out the M3's cavern like wheelwells.
What can be said about the type III that hasnt be said before? Awesome quality, light weight and strength. The sexy design has been around the block a few times, but it looks so good, you know you cant resist mounting them. Get the multi piece for extra street cred.
Ding, ding. The Type three wins this bout by a K.O.

Moda R6 looks great in 19" with lowered suspension. But soft and heavy. IF you're looking for a 5 spoke design, check out the SSR GT1.......... and there's a few other rare birds out there too from the Asia continent. Also the Hamann HMII but they are also common. BTW, the SSR GT1 are nice and lite and semi solid forged ....... .nice wheel. And if you want the rivets..... look at the SSR GT3.
