>Yes I know that the true-spokes used on low-sliders have problems, but when
I talked with the wheel tech at Salesco, they said that their spoked wheels
are balanced and trued then the wire tips coming up thru the rim are then
welded to the rim and rebalanced. He also said that this makes for a
stronger wheel, now whether this story is true or not, I guess I'll have to
find out, unless somebody else has had any dealings with this business and
their wire wheels and have found that their wheels weren't holding up.
