Hi there, yes I have these and will be running them on our project Teryx. I have no feedback as of yet as we are awaiting our suspension to be done. They do look nice and are quite light!

Well here is the reason why we went with the Hiper wheels. First and most importantly, weight. We wanted a 14" but also wanted a beadlock. Rotational weight will have a fairly significant effect on performance. The Hiper wheels weigh about the same as or less than a 12" beadlock.

The other thing is that they are unique, not a lot of people have them, therefore, we liked that people would have an opportunity to see something different on the Teryx for the UTV Off-Road Magazine article.

A lot of people run the OMF's and the ITPs, nothing at all wrong with them, just a matter of the look you want as well as what you are trying to accomplish.

I just wish they weren't so damned spendy

Have they fixed the issue with beadlocks leaking? I remember when they came out they leaked pretty bad...

I actually have a call into them on another bit of information I heard, I will be sure to speak to them about any leaking issues as well and report back.
