There out of style for me, I flatspotted/ cracked the paint on my 2006 front Deemax with 55 psi in the tire!

I did a drop off a 13 foot roof with a tranny and a 888...

I don't think they should flatspot so easily for being so expensive.

O, Bombshell crushers are better lol. 48 spokes, triple wall.
a pair of crusher rims are only 1.5 pounds heavier than a pair of deemax wheels, and theyre industructable

729, 823, spinergy, 5.1 (only for racing)....

The deemanx rims are good, but it's the high maintinence hubs that keep me from being interested in them. If you can find the rim only without the hubs then they would be a good choice but there are stronger options. IMO the only thing that made deemax's so popular in the first place was the color, had they been black like all the other rims I doubt people would have made nearly as big a deal out of them seeing as how they aren't much lighter then average and the require alot of maintinence. Also those straight pull spokes are super expensive to replace if you break one and not many shops tend to have them in stock at all times.

they aren't designed to be super strong, they are ment to be light dh race wheels hence the reason they are so expensive
