The pro maxx is no harder to add air than any other wheel, and as far as durability, they are equal to the q+ I have both kinds and the pro maxx wheels take a beating.I have no problem with the Van K's wheel themselves and don't know if there all the same, I just don't like the placement of the valve stems there not as user friendly to add air.
Sounds like the pro maxx are different and No I have none of the those, No not petty for me when I'm making a quick last minute change on air out of a air tank and I end up leaving air out instead of adding because I can't get at the stem.The pro maxx is no harder to add air than any other wheel, and as far as durability, they are equal to the q+ I have both kinds and the pro maxx wheels take a beating.
really adding air? thats kinda petty isnt it?
My guess most posting have never bought a set of pro maxx wheels
it obvious youre not comparing VanK pro maxx to Q+, like I said above most ave no clueDouglas DWT Q+ : My opinion has better finish and tires mount/bead-up easier .The edges are smooth and burr free . The Van-K have burrs in the center/stud hole/s and the wheels tire lip has sharp edges . There is also a lack of consistency in finish and weld area ( weld bead width/depth and concentricity . Every time picking up the Van-k wheel I loose some confidence from the poor rough finish , wondering if they will fail . Some where I read the Van-K weighs less than Douglas . Although looks do not make speed, I prefer Douglas Q+
EXACTLY!I have no problem with the Van K's wheel themselves and don't know if there all the same, I just don't like the placement of the valve stems there not as user friendly to add air.
This is the first I am hearing that Van-k (aluminum 6'dia.) has a selection other than machined, polished or black. At the time of my purchasing the new Van-k alum. wheels no information provided from the professional kart shop to me of various levels offered ,only choice of machine , polished or black. I chose the machine finish , After reading your reply today I verified what I bought and found I ended up with the "P Zero" line of wheel . These Van-k "P Zero" line are 2pcs welded and after reading today on Van-k site the "Pro-Maxx" line is also a welded wheel assembly as is the Douglas brand . I have not had any issue with the Van-K other than some difficulty getting tires to bead-up and seal to hold air. For myself I prefer Douglas; it may simply be the look of consistent machining , easy of mounting tires and the feel of handling the product . I think both companies use similar manufacturing process of roll forming quality material and welding the 2pcs together and finishing . The few extra dollars for Douglas to me is a very good value as I don't have dozens of sets wheels.it obvious youre not comparing VanK pro maxx to Q+, like I said above most ave no clue
