This wheel is 100x better than the stock rim on my '08 DS450. It was extremely easy to install the tire on the rim and the wheel to the quad. I have had the wheel on the quad for over 6 months and it is holding air with no issues (the stock rim leaked due to bad seal on the rim lip). Am actually going to purchasing bead lockers for the rears this year still. Looking forward to 4 great wheels!
