Tusk Impact Wheelsets

158 posts in this topic

I just saw these on Rocky Mountain ATV/MC's page? They are a black rim/red hub complete wheel and I must say are very affordable. For a CRF450 it is $289 for the rear and $259 for the front.

Here is a link for the rear wheel

I would like to know which company is making them for Tusk. What are your thoughts??

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$

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.

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....

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.

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.

      So I thought I would start a build for my new 2013 YZ250. I had originally only planned to do the bare minimum when it came to mods, but I can never leave well enough alone.
       
      So here is what I started out with, a brand new 2013 YZ250 that I picked up from Cycle Center in Culpeper, VA.
       

       
      I took it home and stripped off the stickers I didn't want.
       

       
      That night I ordered some parts for it. An hour meter, Renthal tall bars, grips, and a 51T sprocket, a blue Acerbis rear fender, Twin Air filters, and a Works Connection glide plate. This is how it currently sits.
       

       
      Happy owner!

      I'm thinking on buying tusk rims that are complete black with blue hubs for my 14 yz450f my question is are they good rims because Rocky Mountain are selling them cheap. Has or is anyone using them and how do you like them?

      I have an 04 YZ250F I just bought. Brand new to riding dirt bikes. What are some good mods to make to the bike. I know about sprockets and lower the the tooth for a better woods ratio. The bike is basically stock besides a tusk clutch it came with.
