Yeh, they go real quick. I think he puts half on Ebay and half on his website when he gets them, but ther only ever seems to be around 20 sets or so.

I just thought i'd check the website while killing some time and they had them back in stock so I've just ordered a full set with some replacement axle parts to make it more worthwhile. :) :) :)

Now lets play the how long will it take to get delivered game :wink:

I've ordered a few bits and prices off him. Usually takes around 1.5 weeks to me....

Ahh but when you do need them they won't be available and then you'll be waiting around for what seems like an eternity for them to go back on sale somewhere.

Buy em, you know you want too :wink:

Question if I may, how are the txt1 rims compared to the clod rims as far as .. quality I guess? The clod rims are a little more flexible than I like, and they tend to get out of round in a high speed truck. Just wondering if its worth the trouble of converting.

TXT wheels are stronger. The Clod wheels are a little flexy, whereas in comparison the TXT wheels are stiffer.
