Why not call NR directly? They've got folks to answer the phones and Dave will set you up with the best prices on his inventory.

that is the msrp. I think KMC might be a company that does not allow discounts.

I'm overseas hard to touch bases with them. A few days ago they were regular price same as all the other sellers. $412 roughly. Now I see $561 only at NR only. They are a vendor on here so I thought maybe they could tell me what's up.?

Nah, they're not the only ones that reflect that price. I'd bet they can do better than that with a call, but it's hardly worth the effort vs. just buying them the cheapest place you can find on-line. They're on-lin chat is handy too. They're very responsive and should net the same results.

I mentioned this to Zan at ORE and he didn't understand the price jump at NR either. So all ends well I'm the new owner of some Machetes at an awesome price.

Wanted to apologize for the way first post came out. I can understand why Northridge 4X4 didn't respond. I have bought quite a few parts from Northridge 4X4 at great prices and no problems and will continue to do so. But I am curious as to why the big jump in price for this particular wheel? Thanks

Hey guys just to give you a heads up as to why. these wheels along with pretty much every other wheel is made in china and the tariffs hit these wheels pretty hard.
