Seems like an amazing deal. I just ordered these. Perhaps the collective wisdom here has something to counter these thoughts. If so, let's hear it! I'll return them if they're a bad idea.

My brakes are shot. The pulsing and grabbing and vibrating could cause whiplash.

Seems like a pretty good deal. I would imagine they are made cheap with cheap iron but they would have to be better than what you have now! :muhaha: Be sure to torque the lug nuts to keep them from warping and you should get many miles out of them.
