Tusk Impact Wheelsets

Remember that old saying "You get what you pay for"?

My buddy was telling me that the tusk stuff is actually really strong

I've had good luck with the Tusk stuff.

A lot to like... forged hub, stainless spokes, etc

The wheels are a new item though. Personally, I'd probably wait for a few more people to give a review. But, I don't need wheels right now

All I can say is I WISH I had seen these before I bought my Warp 9s. About 4 rounds of spoke tightening with a . . . Tusk. . . spoke torque wrench. The front rim did flare out in a spot. Already. No rocks. No visible damage to the rim. But, I digress.

Tusk makes quality stuff. I don't know about the wheels, but I trust the brand. Look forward to hearing from someone who knows about the wheels.

They look nice, but like XCRBird said, you get what you payed for, and if they are trash, your out a good 500-600$

i wanna know the same thing, i thought about buying there rims to lace up to my stock up. Rockey mountain says the wheel uses OEM spokes

Tusk parts are as good as other aftermarket stuff I have used.

I don't know if I was going to buy rims from tusk because I would sure hate for them to bend or crack during a race.

I might get them and just return them if they get un trued.

I would stay away.

They may look good , but how long will they last ?

The topic is of interest to me because of the Warp9 . . . failure. I could only find a couple reviews on the Tusk. One guy hit a pipe and the front rim was fine, another thought they looked good . . . doesn't say much. The only reason I would bet on Tusk being good is because nothing I have bought with a Tusk name on it, from gas caps, to foot pegs, to gaskets and clutch plates and tools has ever been second-rate in quality, despite remarkable prices. No failures at all, and I have bought a lot of stuff. . . I just get the feeling they care about quality. If they were going to introduce a wheel, you would think a lot of thought would have gone into it. . . conjecture, I know, but the brand has been fantastic.

Keep this in mind. A lot of times a company does not make the parts, just re-badges it. I bought a Tusk front brake for my bike and low and behold it cam in a Gafler bag.

If tusk didn't have a good reputation I wouldn't have thought twice about it. I plan on waiting a while and checking the reviews, etc. I really hope they end up working well for people, it would be great to have a quality wheel for that price.

We will see what happens I guess....

just looked at the pics of them and they look nice...

Tusk makes great products IMO. I could spend more but I dont need to. (Exception: their clutch levers are weak). I've had their clutch kit in for 1 1/2 years and I'm just needing to replace. I have their steel sprocket a x-ring kit for over 8 months and I've adjusted the chain twice and the sprockets still have the little ridges on them.

Their wheel sets look similar to Warp9. I have a Warp9 rear rim laced up to a stock hub for woods and it's held up great for all I've put it through! I've hit a rock hard enough to take a check of the metal off (just off the top layer) but it didn't bend.

If they are just re-branded Warp9s I wouldn't have a worry at all, they'd at least make good backup/practice wheels.

Tusk has improved their quality greatly. I bought some Tusk handguards (3 sets) years ago, and all 3 broke in simple tip-over crashes, including one in a race (leaving me with flailing pieces of metal on my bars). I got my money back for those. Since then however, I have not had a single issue with a Tusk product, and RM is one of the first places I look for parts.

We really need to hear from someone who has these wheels. I would love to put an 18" rear on a couple of my bikes.

I would try it. I have a few Tusk products and they seem to be good products. I dont have the wheels though.

Just lost my rear wheel last weekend due to a disintegrated rear wheel bearing. Destroyed the hub. Trying the rear Tusk Impact wheel as a replacement for the same reasons cited by others. I've not had a Tusk product let me down yet. The wheels will be a sizable step up for Tusk, if they stand up. Arriving tomorrow. Will be ridden in a couple motos this weekend.
