    thinking of different wheel options and i happen to come across a set of wheels i like a lot, but they are teflon coated. last i checked only my omelette pan was non stick :confused:.

    i was not aware that they made wheels coated in teflon so my question is if you have a set of the atx teflons let me know how durable the finish is compared to a traditional powder coat. i like the look of them, but durability is a concern to say the least.

    I have them. I am probably harder on my wheels than most people, and they have not given me a problem yet (knock on wood).

    nice thanks man thats good to hear i'm looking into the ledge lol. except for the fact that they are on national back order:) its a good looking wheel though. i would imagine they would be a breeze to clean being teflon.

    how similar are they to lets say a frying pan? if they are really slick like that, thats was an awesome idea by atx.
