Default K Factory Spokes

Is there something wrong with K-Factory spoke wheels? They are really,really cheap. Anybody used them and had problems?

Also, I like spokes because they look good but OFNA has some ultralight dish wheels. Are they too light or could I benefit from losing that extra 40 grams per wheel in rotational weight?

But what about the K-Factory wheels? Have you had any experience with them or heard anything about them.

Big ups to Team Cobra they have a lifetime guarantee against warping or breaking

I have some unmounted K Factory rims; never actually used them, but I've mounted them on my lathe and they are VERY balanced; no apparent signs of mold deformation or wobbling. They weigh 35 grams apiece; dunno if that's good or bad.

I saw they were really cheap too.
I bought 4 pairs from A Main but haven't used them yet but look to be good and strong. They will be the first batch of new rims with no bead lock on the inside but they are all doing that for some reason.
