There was just a post a week or 2 ago where the sprocket bolts like ripped through the hub. Not sure if thats the hubs fault or an issue with loose bolts. Either way i dont have personal experience with them. But wouldnt be buying them. Skimping on hubs isnt a good idea. its too critical of a component you know? Id buy oem ones and have them powder coated or something before chinese ones.

I've had mine for three years with absolutely no issues, but I'm a vet rider, and not a very aggressive one at that.

My dads been running a set of tusk wheels for 3 years through 2 different bikes with no issues. 50+ Expert

I have had a set on my 450 for almost 2 years now and they have been great. No problems with spokes coming loose or anything. I'll be buying them for future bikes as well

Doesn't matter what hubs or rims , if they aren't maintained right.

Got a kid who trains with us who has a set. He is a c rider but tries to jump everything and cases jumps and over shoots a lot. He has had them all year and no issues. His dad does keep a close eye on stuff like bolts and spokes.

Tusk hubs with did hoops on my rmz450. We had complete tusk wheelset on my sons crf250 and they were well worth the $$. If you want to try a set let me know i can save you a few bucks.Photo

I had them as well and had no issues... not that a CRF250 is really a power monster or anything.

My riding buddy, strictly moto uses the Tusk. He's a very fast 450 rider. If there's a quad to jump he does it. Flat lands sometimes, and never had any issues.

They seem to have good reviews just hate how they only make them in gold for the newer rmz

I understand what you're saying, from everything I read they're a toss up, some people have great things to say about them and some say they're trash. I guess it's just up to you wanna risk it.
