    Ditch Witch Vs. Ryhno Lite(sp?)

    These both look similar, I saw them on two different bikes today and was wondering the difference? One more durable? Hubs aside, just the wheel??????????? I already own the rynos ( even though I can't remember how they spell it...) so this question does nothing other than to satisfy my curiosity. I'm not looking for validity in my wheel choice either, they are round and roll just fine. I just thought they looked strikingly similar, what with them both being circles and all. Are they some weird GM/GMC thing were a company puts out identical products with different names ?? Should I really be posting every random stray thought that pops into my head here?

    Ditch Witch rims are burlier, I believe. Much wider.

    Nope, the opposite. Ditch Witches are the lower quality.

    The Ditch Witch rim is OEM only and very low-end.

    No Tommy that's incorrect. Ditchwitches are cheap OEM versions of Rhynolites. They lack the eyeleting and higher standard of quality construction that the Rhyno's enjoy.
