Very nice. My concern, though, is the durability issues of magnesium for street use. Also, is it true that you should x-ray them annually to check for possible hidden flaws?

They may be the forged aluminum ones. Is there any distinguishing characteristics that this is mag?

I have had mine for three years now-same exact ones no issues with god knows how many up and down power wheelies, rough roads etc not a lick of issues

FWIW: I have never read a post from someone who ACTUALLY OWNS OR HAVE OWNNED A SET keyword ACTAULLY OWNS OR HAVE OWNED A SET! that had a failure due to normal riding/road surfaces. Can read plenty of replies from the internet experts naysayers who heard that a buddy of another another buddy will not last or forgot too mention that buddy went off the road, ran over a pothole at 150+ LOL!
