That's $230 a set including shipping. You can get a set of Excels for that price I'm sure.

Definitely pass for the shipping cost alone. You can get Excels for that much money, and you could get pro wheels or warp 9 rims for less. With any of those 3 brands you get a much more proven track record as well.

SRT sells rims.

True, I have been running a set of these on my practice bike for 2 years now and am very impressed with them for the price. I have had many sets of wheels over the years (excel, pro wheel, DID, and warp 9) and these SRT rims have held up just as well as anything I have used. I would buy another set in a heartbeat.

I used to get my Excel rims from onoffroad.com out of California before the owner passed and the site went defunct.  I was paying $90 for a front and $110 for a rear in gold.

Maybe I should have been more specific. The XR500R front is no problem.

The rear being a (2.15 x 17) does seem to be a problem.
