I know they suck!! I have never had them do anything other than get me a new axle because it was still under the original warranty and they covered the bent axle so that was cool but my warranty is almost up now!! Do you have the ITP pro lock or the track lock rims and do you know what the difference is and if there is a warranty on one or both of them??

HiPer wheels are an investment.
I have them and would not buy any other wheels... dollar for dollar, the HiPers are the best wheel... money can buy!

Pro's:
If you damage a HiPer, HiPer wheels are of a modular design. Modular means, built w/multiple pieces. If a particular piece gets broke, you simply replace that piece.

They are rated at Five(5) times stronger than their aluminum counterpart.

They are lighter than a stock wheel.

They have Six(6) different colors available for the bead lock rings, Red, Blue, Black, Yellow, Green and Orange.

HiPer also have multiple bolt circle configuration: Yamaha/Honda/Kawasaki
So if you originally purchase yours for a Yamaha and decide to sell you Yamaha and get a Honda, these same wheels, will fit it! Unless, you purchase a Utility!

Cons:
None that I can think, of!

Bonus Point:
HiPer wheels have an added bonus, no more struggling with tire changing... simply un-bolt the bead lock ring, slide to the tire on or off and re-tighten the bead lock ring.

Final Thoughts:
So you can see why, IMHO the HiPer wheel is the best that money can buy!!!

NO TIRE TOOLS, REQUIRED =]

Tire spin on rim, NEVER!

Tire air pressure, stays even!

best, Best, BEST Rim, money can buy!

The Black is rally phucking great looking, due to the bolts that hold the bead lock on are silver... sort of like a Black Tie, event... classy!
