Dude that looks nasty. What do you think of the quality in comparison to excel rims? I was wondering because i saw them and wandered about putting those on my bike. What brand hubs came with the rims?

I haven't ridden on them yet, i drove to LACR today and the race was canceled when i got there. But just having them i think they are stronger than the stock excel because the spokes are like twice as thick maybe more. They bolted up perfectly as well.

My co-worker has had a set of the fire DNA ordered for a month, hope they come soon or he is getting the WARP9 .
I like the DNA and I like the black with blue hubs.

Straight Line Motorsports in Texas.

They have an ebay store SLMRacing or you can look them up online, i suggest calling them coz they will give you a better deal. The best part was i bought out of state so there was no tax. It took 3 business days for me 2 get them it was so sick!

I had a set of the black DNA's on my 06 and they held up pretty well. I also paid about 500 bucks for the set of built wheels. I did manage to put a big flat spot in the back rim coming up a little short on a double so i figured i would just lace up another one......the thick stainless spokes are garbage on these rims in my opinion. Because they are stainless...alot of them stripped out when being loosened. The only other drawback is when compared to a "LIKE" Talon/excel combo...the dna's are quite a bit heavier. The dna hubs are an exact copy of the Talons. For 500 bucks they are a good deal just to have a spare set of wheels. You can get them in alll kinds of crazy color combos too.

You paid 295 for a pair of complete wheels? Thats a great deal. They are good for a second set of wheels.

I just bought the same set for my YZ, Got them off Ebay for $460 shipped. The front showed up last week.. but apparently the rear is lost in the mail somewhere so no such a great deal. Hopefully it shows up!

It took them what seemed to be a lifetime, but they sent me another wheelset for $250! I'll just keep the non matchers for my sand tires :eek:
