A ricer indicates specifically an asian car that has been modified, where tuner car can be any make.































It's a racial slur based on the origins of the vehicle.

Most ricers don't do anything performance related to the car. They just put a ton of stickers on the car, big heavy rims, a body kit, and huge wing that does nothing.

A ricer is a exaggerated amount of after-market parts put on a vehicle, ex: 150mm exhaust that does nothing but make the car obnoxiously loud. Done by the owner.































A tuner is a well executed upgrade done solely to make the vehicle faster.

A ricer is a family car (usually an import) that is either a 4-door or a 2-door who's owner mods the car visually to impersonate performance.















A tuner is a car that the owner has enough of a brain to actually give the car a marginal amount of performance.































Picture of a ricer below and under that is a tuner, hope this helps.

a ricer is usually a asian make car that has just way to many aftermarket parts on it that make the car look absolutely rediculous and really does nothing for performance. A tuner is a car that actually has aftermarket parts that are beneficial to the performance of the car.
