I don't mean to plug someone shamelessly, but I can't help it. This guy in Florida makes his living selling wheel and tire packages dirt cheap. He does it on e-bay. Do a searh by seller and type in the name "Rimdealer". At last check, he had 318 sets of wheels and tires on there. I bought my 17" BSA's with tires (all brand new) for 500 bucks. After shipping and insurance they were $610. The deal was outrageous, and the wheels are great quality. I will recomend this guy to ANYONE!!

I got mine from WheelMax too. Cheap is good... but just remember you get what you pay for. I had problems with one of the tires they sent on the rim. They tore the bead. They would exchange it, but I would have had to have the tire removed, ship the tire to them, wait for the new tire, have it remounted and balanced. It was cheaper to fix what they screwed up.

Just remember that when you buy an expensive set of wheels, you are also paying for the support staff in case something goes wrong. I have found that even with these guys, trying to get anything warrantied is a hassle. I expect you will find this accross the board with the cheaper packages out there.

Those of you who bought from wheelmax, did everything go okay? I'm considering buying some wheels from them, but I've read some horror stories on other forums- things such as 3 weeks for shipping, hidden charges, no inventory, bad customer service, etc.

Well I've dealt with them. I actually bought my wheels from NuSpec Racing because Malik the owner is a good friend of mine. NuSpec has a wholesale account with WheelMax, and Malik was able provide better customer service than WheelMax themselves. But at one point I called WheelMax to ask some questions and as soon as they realized that I wouldn't be buying from them directly they told me "This is not an information service pal!" Needless to say, I was not impressed with their customer service. If you want to buy something from WheelMax, give Malik at www.nuspecracing.com a call and he'll take a lot of the frustration out of dealing with those idiots.

Otherwise, you might want to check out www.speedandstyle.com. I don't know about their service but it looks like they sell some better wheels over there. The REV wheels look really good, and they're lightweight and cheap.
