They look pretty cool, but $100 for shipping is a little much for my tastes. Then again, I don't know if $200 for wheels is a good deal.

$200 on a set of good wheels is a great deals, and let me tell you, those are not good wheels.

There's been a lot of negative posts regarding the wheels, but no validation posted. Have any of you ever tried these, or what in particular is your reason for not liking them?
