I see vendors standing behind VMR wheels. I would too if I sold their wheels.

But the facts are out there, on many forums, not just this one. The finish on VMR wheels do chip, especially on the CSL reps. I have seen it with my own eyes.

I have also seen the same chipping on the Miro CSL reps.


But... I would still consider their wheels. They are great value and solid construction. Even if you have to powder coat them down the road, they will still be cheaper than other wheels.
