    Update!

    The guys from Level 8 stopped by to drop off a sample of the finished Bully Pro. I jumped at the opportunity and snapped some pics. Check it out! Level 8 ended up making a slight change to the front wheel lip to give the overall wheel with scratch guard a slimmer profile. ETA is still looking like September. We will let everyone know when we start taking pre-orders.

    Also, something else we may not have pointed out. These wheels have stepped inner bead seats (opposed to rounded). Level 8 has done this to help increase bead retention for those that air down on the trail. You can see these stepped bead seats below as well.

    You don't have some sort of warranty? 25 miles?? I would at least ask. Sell your rims here?

    If you aren't happy with your wheels bring them back. Talk to the store manager and ask him if he can help. Don't wait though, go see them as soon as you can and maybe they'll have a solution for you.

    For reference, these won't be available until September though (estimate).

    Those look great on your truck! I'm sure you could sell them to another member here and put the money toward a set of Level 8 Pro wheels when they come out. :D

    Sub'd! I've been interested in a set of rims with a scratch guard and like the Tracker 8 Pro!

    I've also been looking at the Konig Countersteer Type X 17". The spokes are inset but there is no scratch guard option :/

    I'm currently running the TRD FJ LE rims and both the rim and spoke get rash on them when wheeling.

    I'm dying here. Lol. I have 5 wheels on order at Discount tire right now, and they are back ordered. So while I'm waiting for those, the bully pro's are moving to the warehouse inventory. Here is the deal, I've got to plan my life/trips too. If I have a really good idea when these are coming, I'll be able to plunk my money down this week. But with out a clue, then this teasing is beginning to just be frustrating.
