Question MSR Wheels. Need info.

Guys, I'm considering MSR 113 wheels for my Forester but have no idea about quality of them. Are they good, acceptable, bad? Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Here is the website: http://www.wheeldealracing.com/index.asp?id=3.2

Have you verified that they come in the right size for the XT?

If you like those wheels, why not get Rota SDR's? They're proven to fit, low priced, and have a good reputation

These are bronze, but they're available in silver.

size - yes, but offset is still questionable. I'm gonna visit the guy's store to see and actually try them before I will make my decision. But their quality is still a big concern for me.

mav1c,
Rotas would be even better but since I really want 18" and there are not many people who tried them with All-season tires, I'd rather go to a store and try everything "in person". The address I posted above is the website of a local dealer but unfortunately I could not find much info about the brands that he is selling. I don't race or go off road so I'm not looking for the strongest and lightest wheels ... just wheels that will not cause problems by themselves, even without pushing them hard. What do you think?

Thanks.

I found their website! Could you take a look on it and say if this is a known or just some noname company? They claim that they've been around for awhile.

Thanks!

American Wheel has been around for a long time, so it's definitely not a "no name" company. Quality is questionable though.
