my buddy is one of the distributors for those wheels here in Canada! he has his internet site.

PM me if you are intersted and I can pass you his address and email.

I would post the address here but I don't know if the admins will like that so much or if it is fair to the sponsors.

The 2PC series is indeed made by DPE. This is a 3pc wheel. It is not made by DPE.
