    Well, my single wheeled Velke Died today,hard. I figured I'd just tough it out and walk/jog, BAD IDEA! 100 Deg. today that lasted about 45 Mins. and near killed me. So on the phone with all the dealers in the area and all I can find is 1 set of Jungle wheelsx2 that the dealer just got for another LCO. Well I go there to meet him and theyre for a back up. Long story short,after hearing my sogga he says you can have them! $289 plus tax. he'll order another for himself. I've only got 5 hours in on them so far and love them. Can you say foot room? Wish I'd done this years ago.:)

    Rick, you got a killer deal. I bought a Velky X2 when I got my WB and I paid I think $300+. I'm now sitting on my arse and not standing but that's another story. BTW what type and brand of mower did your wheels go on?

    i love my jungle wheels.

    although they left me stranded about a week ago when the weld broke.

    right before the left/right pivot bushing thing, where the pipe welds on top of the flat peice of metal, thats where it broke.

    i reccomend you drill through and put in a bolt, just incase.

    They're good for a little while, if u dont weigh alot, hell I only weigh 185 and I was breaking those welds all the time.... I finally just got a different brand... I got very tired of having to weld them alllllll the time...

    Jungle Wheels, TrimmerTrap, etc..........
    People don't understand until they actually use the good products. Glad you like them, I have 2 sets. Use shell grease and keep them greased.

    wow I had no idea they were that expensive, 289.00 we had a velke tire bit the dust this week, when I went to get another tire they had a set of jungle wheels sitting there and my dealer said I will make you a deal, I guess he did because I only paid 150.00 bucks.
