I always hear people say the Mclean wheels are the best wires, but I never hear why...what exactly makes them better? What is the warranty on them.

I'm not trying to say any wheels are better, or debating the fact that Mcleans are good wheels, I'm just curious, because there are companys out there such as O.G. wires that carry a 3 year warranty, so youd think if they were bad quality, they wouldn't offer such a good warranty.

So besides the good prices, what makes them better?

Im buying blue mcleans, soon!

Ive had results from LA wire! They last, over all quality is good & people always thought they were real daytons! La wire gold and dayton gold are the same, but luxor tends to be more dull, and roadser/roadstar tend to be darker and spokes tend to poke out a little more on roadster/roadstar

Get a set, wreck them and try getting that warranty honored ;)[/b][/quote]
Of course they're not going to honor a warrantee if you wreck them. There's a big difference between "warrantee" and "insurance." A warrantee covers you against "manufacturer's defects", not "fucked-up-driving defects."

excellent customer service and extensive powdercoating options have been a good product backer imo..easy and worry free for us to purchase in other countries also...

Anything else that makes them better? I'm just curious, because I think I want to go with some different wires than what I have (Player), but I can get a really good deal on O.G. wheels, less than I would pay for the Mcleans. So I'm debating between the two brands...Mclean and O.G. I still haven't heard anything that really makes the Mcleans better though.

Also, I still haven't found out the warranty on Mclean, anyone know?

Thanks for the replies everyone.

I feel ya, I'm not 100% sold on HomeBoyz, though I do think he has some good rims and nice prices. But, I have yet to hear a solid reason why everyone jocks him...oops did I say that...

nah, just playin, but everyone on here SUPPORTS him, But there HAVE to be other places to get good rims...

But, good chance I will order 13 rims and tires through him by the middle of Feb...so I might be supporting him too, we'll see

cheap wires are cheap wires..there all tha same.. if you want real quality rims.. go with daytons.. im sure even homeboyz will tell you that.. as for me.. i roll mcleans and other cheapiez for tha reason if you take care of them and keep them hoez clean.. they will last you.. and the price is cheap.. so i can get a few other pairs in other combinations..cuz i change rims like i change shoes.. ;)

Don't the parts from most the wire wheel companies come from the same place?

So does Mclean get their parts from the same place as others? Then do they plate them theirselves or do the part come plated?

I've had my Player wires for 2 years and the chrome is fine. I drove them in rain, and I don't have a garage, so I couldn't say they had bad plating.

Are there any other reasons?

I'm starting to think I will just go with the best price, I haven't heard any proven facts that make my decision to spend more justified.

UNLESS YOU BUY ZENITH,ROADSTER,OR DAYTON THEN YOU ARE BUYING FOREIGN RIMS THEM THREE ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT MAKE THIER WHEELS IN THE U.S.A. BUT DAYTON NOW OFFERS A KOREAN MADE WHEEL THEY CALL THE BVLD. SERIES.I WOULD SAY NO# 1 WOULD BE ZENITH,#2 DAYTON,#3 ROADSTER IN THAT ORDER!!!!!! ALL THE OTHER RIMS ARE MADE IN ABOUT 5 DIFFERENT COMPANY'S IN CHINA AND KOREA.THEY DO HAVE SOME GOOD WHEELS BUT NOTHING LIKE MADE HERE!!!
