    Do RuggedRoads' Excel wheel come pre-drilled ?

    The picture of the Excel wheels (off RuggedRoads' website) shows the dimples are undrilled. Maybe it is a generic image. Those who bought their Excel wheels from them, did they come pre-drilled or not? Also, if they comre pre-drilled, was it for the stock nipples of for oversized nipples for stainless spokes ?

    I am in need of a new front rim to match my new rear DID rim.

    Let me know

    Which I already did. Still waiting for a reply. And as things are going fast in my resto, I'd rather have two sources of info.

    Those that I have ordered from Rugged Roads have needed to be drilled. This was several years ago though. It is possible that this has changed.

    Well, even my old DID rims don't match the new rear one.

    The old rims are more like Champaign Gold, while the newer DID is more yellow and saturated. And I don't have the budget to buy another rear Excel to match the front one I would like to buy...
