Anyone used spline drive nipples....hehehehe....

Dudes, I need a life...

Anyone used these, or heard anything about them?


JJ from WA - 99 WR; WR timed, EKN Needle, Scotts stabalizer, Scotts triple clamps, Pro-Tapers, Michelin S-12's, Terry Cable hot start, MSR Raptor clutch lever, Moose skid plate, Works frame guards, Acerbis Pro Rally guards, Renthal MD-soft grips, Factory Effex graphics, YZ IMS seat base, YZ Factory Effex seat foam and gripper seat cover, YZ rear fender

I ordered a set of "built" wheels from White Brothers and expected them to have the spline drive nipples....but NOOOOOO...they came with regular nipples. From what I've researched about spline drive nipples is that it's difficult to NOT damage them from over tightening. The threads become the weak point. These nipples are not any stronger than typical nipples...they are sinply more resistant to rounding off.
