Tried one of these Pro Wheels on my sons CRF150RB practice bike, trying to save a little money(have Excel`s on his race bike). Had heard all the negatives about Pro Wheels in the past, but thought the Generation 3`s may be better. I was wrong. Everything was installed correctly, with new tube, almost new Dunlop MX31, 14.5 PSI and spokes were checked every 3-5 laps. Rim got a flat spot in it within 1/2 day of practice riding.Worst parts is Pro Wheel wouldn`t do much as far as warranty, they said that was normal for MX riding. They offered me another rim at a discount, like I`d want another one. Luckily Motosport stepped up to the plate and helped me out with getting an Excel to relace it. Don`t waste your time and money with Pro Wheels, stick with Excel.
This is actually the second time I have bought a Pro Wheel rim. The first one bent on me so I replaced it with an Excel Takasago which bent as well. I would say that the common factor was it did not seem to be trued correctly. That being said this one seems to be doing good so far after I took it to a shop to be accurately trued and balanced. Overall time will tell. But for the price "You get what you pay for" holds true .
If your fast buy a better rim. If your mid pack am or below the pro wheel is a good deal. These rims are actually softer than stock and will bend quite easly. This is not opinion it is proven fact. Thers a reason the stronger rims are more money. The alloys and heat treating involved in making a stronger rim amp the price.
I have had these rims for a few years now but I might ride a couple hundred miles a year at best. The rear rim remained black while the front rim has turned brown. I'm guessing they're anodized, but the process was not done correctly on the front rim. So now, I have to disassemble the rim, replace and respoke and true a new rim. I'm sure you all know what a pain or cost that can be. Pro Wheel offered to give me a %20 discount if I wanted to pay for the shipping. Not good customer service IMO. Excels next time.
Good wheels and look great
the gen 3 pro wheel rim I ordered for my wife bike fit perfect no issue and the price was great. I bought their first generation rear wheel rim years ago and it was a night mare... I had to drill the hub which was not bad but the rim had to be drilled too because the spoke nipples did not even fit. Very happy with the improvements and recommend the rims and spokes to anyone.
Bought these for an 07' KX85. Fit was good and they use the stock oem or aftermarket spokes
It's a shame because these rims are very affordable and have held up to some considerable abuse. But my back rim is still solid black - the way it came. The front rim has turned this bronze-black color and looks horrible. I contacted Motosport who contacted Pro Wheel who said there is NO WARRANTY on finish. Buyer beware.
never again,1st 1 broke at the weld,second 1 had a flat place on the rim.exchanged for Excel -no worries-great rim!
Great rim! Like the previous post said, crashes will most likely not bend this rim! It's amazing how durable these things are. if your thinking about buying a pair it's a good decision. Even if there just spares.
These wheels are a very nice alternative to a stock replacement and are 1/2 the cost plus they look pretty sweet on my KX450F which had silver stock rims. I had a wheel guy lace them up with the stock spokes and they perform great in race conditions.
i havent put them on yet but the quality looks good especially for the price and they add the bling
I guess i didnt read closely enough when it said, "drilled for OEM spokes", I just wished that the spokes they make would fit the rim they make
pro wheel might not be as strong as excel rims but their definetly wow stronger and thinker then stock which is very good because you wont have to worry about bending them
nice look, had to drill out for O/S nipples/spokes
I was skeptical of this product at first because I have used Excel rims before but after purchasing them I found them to be great. They laced up easily and look perfect. I found it to be a great purchase for the money.
Good rim. For this price this is a quality replacement for OEM.
Super strong, very hard to bend!!! I use these on all my bikes, great pricing!!!!!!!!!!
