I’m looking for a new set of wheels for my GX and I’m curious to know, how many of you with cheaper off brand wheels have actually had issues with them? I love the look of the Volks TE37s but there’s no way in hell I could afford them. I know FN Wheels makes a replica but they are out of stock and aren’t answering my emails. I found another company called MST and they have a similar wheel which look good and a set of 4 is $650. Obviously the quality won’t be near actual Volks but will they be good enough? I hear it over and over again that cheaper wheels quality will be “so so” but how often do people here actually damage a cheaper wheel in a way that a more expensive one wouldn’t have been damaged? I don’t do anything super extreme but I am often on more moderate / slightly intense trails. Will I regret getting cheaper wheels? Any insight here greatly appreciated. These are the wheels I’m considering below.

I'm all about budget lol, i'd roll the dice.
Just carry a spare at least
Yeah totally. That’s another reason why these are more appealing, I could get 5 wheels for cheaper than 4 of even the Fn wheel version. I just can’t imagine myself actually having problems with a cheaper wheel. Wanted to see if it’s common though and if people actually often run into issues. Might just roll the dice.
