Hey guys,

ushi

Most companies that price their wheels as "professional" wheels, come from china. There are 2 different types of wheels, the more boxy looking wheels and there are the CNC lathe'd wheels that are both made in China, but some companies try to persuade people that they are made in the USA. They are decent wheels for the price, and sometimes can last ages, sometimes they last a week, Just depends on the set you get. I've rode China wheels for a while, the bearings do blow out after a while. You should have just ordered a set from the USA, less wait time...

I've heard mixed reactions about them, I have tried the "og" china wheels, and I guess they're bearing wheels that don't cost a lot, (being that's the only thing you can really say about them), lol, but as far as the new CNC wheels I've heard that they're pretty okay for the price, and then again I've heard people say they will never waste the 10 bucks on them again, I would just save up and buy some legit wheels like cartwheels or something, Cartwheels are legit and priced to move, so it's a win-win. China wheels are really just hit and miss, you may get a great set that will last a long time, then again you may get a set that will blow the bearings out in a matter of weeks, possibly even days. You're welcome, and sorry my explanation was so long, haha

China wheels are nowhere near as good as $30 wheels. The price difference is for a reason.

Yeah, but to each his own, some people can't afford to pay 30-45 dollars for wheels. Or they just don't want to.

If you sell China wheels people will know and most likely not want them.

I love you

Better off just saving up and buying some quality wheels like Oaks, Y's, Flatface, Winkler or something...

If money is a bit of a problem (which it often can be) Cartwheels are without a doubt the best 'value for money' wheels on the market (from my experiences)...why not give them a shot cheers

The $30 wheels are much better- but having china wheels doesnt really effect perfomance it just doesnt feel nice at all
