You want the best value for money on the market, our essential wheels focus on what you get in the box for the best price. Our Superstar Premium Line wheels have all the bells and whistles which have to be included in the purchase price, due to customer request we are offering a cheaper option without these features to hit a lower price. Sure it would be nice to have premium SKF bearings fitted to everything but they cost a fortune, so we can slash prices by fitting standard quality bearings in line with the rest of the industry. Race Sapim spokes and brass nipples, plus rims and hubs from reputable manufacturers, mean the best bang for your buck.

2 Year Warranty on materials and manufacturing faults

Crash Rebuild and Free Truing policy DOES NOT apply to Essential wheels.

We do not cover bearing failure as this is a wear and tear issue. Replacing of standard size bearings is an easy and cheap task, and part of standard maintenance

All Superstar wheels are supplied without rimtape or tubeless parts. We prefer to allow customers to fit their personal choice of tape/valves/sealant to suit their requirements.
