To be fair, it struck me as being pretty knowledgeable...
Yes but cant help but see it as bitter to join specifically to coment on this thread.
I'm sorry you found my comments bitter. It wasn't meant as such. I was more trying to explain that there really isn't a difference between buying these wheels versus buying direct from source. The lack of technical expertise displayed on the website suggests that the value of any "UK-based support" is effectively zero. Whether or not you place any value on a warranty that lasts three times longer than the company offering it has so far, that's up to you.
I'm not sure which companies you're referring to that "rebrand" £300 wheels and sell for £700+ but many of them do actually add some value to the chain. Sure, the wheels might only "cost" £300 (sidenote: a high-quality build costs more than that to manufacture) but knowing where to buy them can be worth a fair amount! Equally, some don't add any value beyond pretty stickers. Either way, I don't think there are many folks sitting out their on their superyachts having made their money in the wheel business these days.
