    Any of you folks running Durrani magnesium wheels? The price seems too good to be true.

    Too good to be true?

    What's the price, and are the wheels out or are they just taking advanced orders?

    New process that minimizes scrap. I know the frim in Detroit that makes them.

    SPORTBIKETRACKGEAR.com just go set up with them and I ordered a set for me too. Production pc's are a few weeks away but it looks pretty sweet.

    I have some reservations about that deal that led us to remove their ad from the upcoming issue...something about every phone call we made to the company reaching a busy signal, no matter when it was made. Might want to stand by before sending off money.

    Or better yet, just wait till one of us Michigan riders goes and checks out there shop. Hey Jig I hear your sleeping in lately take a road trip man, for that matter fill out a app. while your there Maybe they will give you a job and you can keep your toys. :Poke:

    I have emailed them about making a set fo my KTM SMR and they responded to the Email very quickly. But I would be spending that kind of money in person, not sending it to a PO box.

    Getting them through Monte would be the other good option, as we know he is trustworthy.

    I have received very prompt replies to several email messages to them.

    Emails are nice but if no one picks up the phone. . .

    Hell, I get prompt replys from the wife of Prince Click Clack of Nigeria about her offer to send me $35 Million cashiers check if I help bribe some Nigerian officals.

    I was worried about this as well, which is why I tried to order already but found out they don't make them for my SMR yet.

    All of the principles have full-time "real" jobs so prompt business hours return calls might be a little problematic. They're running lean and mean as a start
    up.

    Start up companies with big offices and lot's of employees and lease cars scare the hell out of me.

    STG takes Cash, Checks, VISA, MC, AmEx, Discover and Pay Pal.

    PM me your year and model bike Frank and I'll PM you to let you know approximate lead time for your application.

    BTW - I don't want to turn this into me selling wheels. I just wanted to let those interested who asked questions about if this was legit or not know that it is.

    I just got an e-mail from the company complaining about my post and stating that their phones are busy because they had a 500% increase in orders.

    The e-mail says I should have tried to contact them before posting. (Unfortunately, their phone was busy.)

    FYI.

    just curious. have you seen the mfg operation? or the f.e.a.? or any other prototype testing results?

    again...not stirring up shit...i'm just sure you wouldn't just toss your rep out on no info at all.

    Yes.

    I'm not a big foo-foo guy and honestly have avoided mag wheels due to tensile/yield ratios and post crash/impact inspection criteria that to me were unacceptible for casual use.

    That was good for an AM chuckle.
