[attachment=89574:attachment][attachment=89575:attachment] Bought a set of very nice 8" wheels with green rubber from PERFORMANCE ENGINEERING last year at Haydays. After waiting 6 to 8 weeks and several phone calls I got them. Then, I liked them so much I ordered a set of 5-inch wheels to match. After waiting another 6 to 8 weeks I got them too. The only problem is when winter came the rubber on the wheels did not last. I returned them with a letter and photos and they said they are trying to get better rubber on them on will send out the new ones as soon as possible. No refunds. Well I am sure you know the rest of the story. I guess they are out of business and here I sit with no wheels and out the cash. :drunk:

Would anyone else like to share your experience and tell me what the heck happened to them? Their Web site is still active. :help:

performance engineering, or hi-performance engineering, either way sounds like a company run by Randy Nouis of supertorquer :cn: :Wow1:

I think they had a problem with their green wheels because my 8" wheels look EXACTLY like that. I'm working on getting mine redone, I'll keep in touch with you if I make any progress.

What happened to them? They screwed themselves over by piss poor management. They were taking clutch orders hand over fist and started taking people's money before shipping product. Where all the money went is anyone's guess. They are belly up and have liquidated all assets.

Yes, let's not mix them up. I am talking about Performance Engineering in Wadena Minnesota (Manufacturing). I buy a ton of stuff from HI Performance Engineering (Distribution) of Thief River Falls. They are a class act! :div20:

Just a thought, by the looks of your pictures. You have studs on the very outside belt, i think that the wheels then instead of rubbing rubber to rubber, rubbed against the much harder stud and this lead to the destruction of your wheels.

Rubber is put on the billet idlers so you CAN run studs. The black rubber seems to be holding up fairly well,

Right on! I have over 7000 miles on the green Cat originals with no sign of wear at all on those very same studs you are looking at. It is simply a case of not the right rubber, density and or process.....
