My rostyles are in bad shape. Once visibly wobbles on the balancing
machine. Before I rotated my tires, the vibration at 50 mph was bad
enough to chatter my teeth. Not fun.
So, I am thinking that this would be as good a time as any to get the
Minilite type wheels I have been wanting for 2 years now. I am
thinking 15x5.5, so that I can get into a larger selection of tires
that are only available in lower profiles (I know this will make the
ride harsher, I can deal with that).
So, which minilite is best?
Moss sells the replica for $180, I can get it from the Moss dealers on
the list for even less.
I found the importer of minilite wheels (the real thing) that sells
them at $230 a piece or so (and of course there is always the bulk deal
if that happens again this year).
Since I am a college student, and I have to think about rent money, and
how much I have to work to pay these things off, price is something of
an issue. (I can live with the whacked rostyles for a while).
So, is it worth it? What is the real difference between the minilite
and the replica that Moss et al sells? What would be the difference in
the "real world" (I don't hit the track like Eric does). Essentially,
what do you get for the extra $200+?
I am not really interested in used rostyles, I haven't had much luck
Since winter in the Palouse is fast approaching, this is a good time
for me to start looking, since I won't have to worry about tires for a
good 6 months, and perhaps I can spread the cost of the wheels over
several months as well.
... Looking forward to digging out the Artic Alpins and playing in the
