Wolf vs proline at RN

What is the difference between proline and Wolf wheels besides price?

Correct. As far as I know, nobody has taken both and given a proper unbiased review of what is different.

I think the consensus was that you wouldn't go wrong with either since they're both thick, made of steel, people have used them without issues, given the price they're a good alternative, etc. I agree not all differences have been made in a side by side comparison, but it looks like you're probably not getting much "less" for the savings.

I've measured, weighed, and inspected.

Any other tests people want me to perform, short of cutting them in half, I'm happy to do. I am unbiased, as we sell both so I do not care which I sell.

When I get wolfs for my D1 in a month, they'll be the proline wheels.

1 defective in the last 250 wheels in the past 2 years. Wouldn't balance apparently

Aren't they all made by Dunlop anyway?

I am honestly unaware of who makes them. Neither have any manufacturer info on the box.

I don't believe alibaba is a brand or manufacturer, but we do not purchase anything from alibaba
