Better start looking for rims if you have the good factory wheels, they only held spares for 5 years. Wheelcraft managed to get me the last pair of rims for the 10th anniversary ksyrium wheels. Hope someone buys wheels side of the business.

They only ever supported factory wheels for 5 years, and getting the right bits could be a total ball-ache. Shame really, Kysrium SLs were tremendous wheels.
