has anybody had any problems with these wheels at all (assuming you're not doing crazy jumps and wheelies)?

Gear started slipping after about 50 miles, lbs replaced it no charge, and installed bigger lock ring, no problems yet. Stickers can be removed with a little heat, and pealed slowly.

Mine are OK. The rear is a little out of true. Not bad enough to remove it but if it gets any worse it will bug me.

I have them on my San Jose, and they have treated me just fine. They are HEAVY though, and the stickers are a pain.
