Anyone have experience with Outgun Racing wheels?

I just ran across these guys on Facebook, so I checked out their site. They have pretty good prices, but I didn't see anything about weight limits. I e-mailed them and got a response back within a few minutes saying pretty much what I expected - weight limit of 195#. But, then they said that they are getting some new wheels drilled for more spokes that they thought should be suitable for people weighing much more. They haven't gotten the new wheels so they haven't tested them yet, but it sounded promising. What really did it for me is that they got back to me very quickly. I've e-mailed other wheel companies/builders and it's taken a week or more to get back to me, if they ever did at all.

I'm waiting to hear back from them about how testing goes, but if it goes good it looks like I may be getting a set of their wheels in the not too distant future. Anyone else had any experience with them?

I have some experience with them, but I may be biased. We did have a guy weighing "between 250 and 260 pounds" try them for a month and they held up fine. I only have one more pair of 28/32-hole 88 mm clincher rims in stock at this moment. Every set is built to your specifications, so you can still choose your hubs, skewers, spokes and nipples.
