Bought this rim to replace the existing stock Honda rim on my 2003 CR250R. Bought HONDA OEM spokes to go along with the new rim and used the existing stock hub. After lacing the rim up, I torqued the spokes in three steps. I alternated sides of the rim when torquing. I would torque two spokes on one side, then go to the opposite side 180 degrees to torque the opposite two spokes. Did this until all spokes were torqued to Honda service guide specs. I then mounted the rim up on the bike to true it up. To my surprise, the rim was just about as true as one could get it and would be satisfactory for most folks. Because I am very particular, I did some very minor adjustment to get the rim near perfectly trued. The finish seems to be very durable. Tired mounted easily although I used some protectors to avoid damaging the finish on the rim. I used lots of baby powder inside the tire and on the inner tube. This helped a lot when mounting the rear tire.

Still straight and true after 2 years on my RM250. The spokes stay tight and the finish is holding up well. I am a top 3 C class racer at the hare scrambles and enjoy fast, technical mountain trails. I hit some mx jumps but not the big ones and I run fast over rocks and roots. For my type of riding the 18" Pro Wheel has been a great value.
great looking rim but a little tough to true
this could be because I used my old spokes
but this is a good rim for the price
rim looks great and performs great , better than oem
I have had these on a 125 and 250, both have done very well.
Great quality for the price!!!
Strong and good looking.
This is the best rim I've ever owned, it's perfect for any type of riding and it looks good! Easy to put on, and it keeps it shine pretty well! I would so get the rim again if I'm in need for one again!
PUT THIS RIM ON "03" YZ85, HAVE NOT HAD ANY PROBLEMS. LOOKS GREAT AFTER A FULL SEASON OF AMA MOTO'S. I DID HAVE TO DRILL THE FACTORY HUBS TO FIT THE SPOKES. MY SON HASNT TORN IT UP YET LIKE THE FACTORY RIMS.
Great rim very hard to string for Yamaha YZ 85. But well worth the trouble for my first time.
bought a set for an 07' KX 85. fit was good and they use stock oem or aftermarket spokes.
Bought this rim as a replacement for a cracked oem rim. laced up and trued just fine for my 09 crf450r with no issues as of yet. didnt have to drill out the holes or make any modifications. The red look is just a bonus that makes the bike look even better. The paint does come off a bit easy especially if you do tire changes with tire irons.
these rims look as good as any other black rims out there but the price is better
Even though the pro wheel rim is cheaper than the others, its a solid product. It looks sweet and has held up well so far. No complaints
They look good. A bit off as far as perfectly round, not sure if any rim is. I guess thats why you spend some much time lacing them.
A good deal for any one wanting to upgrade or replace stock wheels.
You can tell just by looking a this and the stock that these are a better built and more solid of a wheel.
The is a sleek and shiny looking rim......Weather you pick any of the anodized choices of colors, you will set your bike off from the others.......I recommend this rim to all enthusiast on two wheels..............Keep it 'Roostin' ladies and gents.....
quality is Ok ,not exactly a true rim either one
16" rear has no rimlock
overall I will not use again
new spokes.It will make lacing up easier.
