My beef is with the misleading label, not the country of origin. That same company (MHT) has two other series of alloy wheels they claim are US made, but not the U101. Another point of contention (social and economic, not political) is the price manipulation. That wheels is probably $50 in materials, $50 in tooling/energy/facility overhead, and $35 in transportation/tax/tariff just to put the product on US soil. So how can they sell it at a $13 loss ($135-$122=-$13) without even PAYING the people who made it? Did the labor pay $13 for the privilege of making it, just so MHT could break even at $0 profit? It doesn't add up.
The "Truckin' Series" and "Pro Touring Series" alloys are claimed to be US made, as are the steelies they produce.
Back to the OP though, I'd ditch the fancy calipers. I mean, brake fade will come from the rotors heating up regardless of what is pinching them, and there's ways to increase the line pressure if you need more squeeze to lock them up. Another thing I've found, is that 15" tires are significantly cheaper than 17" tires. As much as $200 a set for regular MTs, more for fancy tires. Enough that the difference pays for a matching spare for the tires I like.
