Wheel looks great. However, it is very soft material. Already have scratches on two rims across the face, still don't know how it happened. Just inserting new valve stems with tool left marks on the lip, and this takes very little pressure. When bolting on, rims flexed like the mating surface against the hub was not true. Once bolted on, there are no unusual vibrations, so all is good there. Three out of four did take more weight than what a good quality rim should.(6 to 8 oz) And it is not the tires.(Low mileage BFG TKO's)
I guess you get an ok rim, for a pretty affordable price. In this case, you get what you pay for.
Nothing against Tire Rack, they are great people, and even replaced one rim received with what looked like die grinder marks all over the inside surface where it had possibly been repaired or something.
