Because of the abuse I put my machine through tires and wheels to me are disposable.
I change out my rims when I replace tires and I am not worried about looks.
I came across these and because they were inexpensive I picked up a set.
First off they did enhance the looks of my machine but I am looking for durability not looks.
I put them through the motions of abuse (rocky trails) and was very surprised at how they held up.
If not for a bad judgement call on my behalf these wheels would have lasted me two seasons and possibly beyond whereas my stock steel and other aftermarket wheels have lasted me one season or less.
After a year and half of hard riding the surviving three still look very good despite the rock rash on the outer lip.
Overall I am very surprised at the durability of this wheel and would not be replacing all of them if not for my error in judgement.
Very highly recommended!
