    IRO wheelsets

    Are the custom wheels from IRO the Cold Fusions or Velocity rims? On the bottom of the page it says "They are built with IRO Cold Fusion 32 hole rims laced 3x in the rear and 3x front with 14g stainless steel spokes to our flip/flop high flange hubs," but yet there's a picture of Deep V's on top.

    there was a thread about this awhile back and someone called tony and he said they are equivelent to velocity fusions.

    They used to be deep v's, that's why the picture is that, something tells me tony doesn't care too much about how his website looks.

    similar only in that they're a mid-V type rim.
    the profile is quite different that a velocity fusion
    They're made by Kinlin, so no, they're not rebranded

    they are not velocitys as far as i know. they used to build the wheels up with deep v's. the iro wheels are not bad tho i have bee nriding a set for about 6 months and they can definitely take a beating and look pretty good too. i did how ever get velocity deep v's that tony had around still laced to the new hubs they have in the mail today. pretty psyched. thumbup for IRO
