Default Re: Are you running 12gauge spokes in front?

Be sure the spokes are all tight, the wheel is running true/straight, this is the most important part of all spoke sizes but most important I would think on the smaller spoke dia. like the 14gauge.

I have 14g. wheels front and rear on one of my MB's that has 1500+ miles on it now, it gets rode on several miles of rough dirt roads 90% of the time, never an issue.

Bearings lubed well, bearings tensioned right, spokes tight, wheel running straight, you should be good to go.

Peace, map
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
