Is it just me or are these similar / identical?

As they look the same I would suggest the quality is probably significantly different and most likely in areas such as the material grade of the hub, which could possible fail in use.

I often wonder what really can be the difference between Ebay items and more expensive items. But unless you can find the full specification of the ebay item, it would be hard to have confidence in it.

Splines wear over time on the expensive ones so I would hate to see what happened to the cheap ones!

more than likely just as good..... but you never know!

The blue car has a lifeline one like that... the white one had a 30 ebay ball bearing locking collar one and I preferred it. Less jiggle, easier to locate when replacing etc

This post reminds me I need to replace half of the blue cars weld-on release. Its splines are worn and gives too much wiggle for my liking

I was looking at them but I have a 50mm spacer already so think im just going to use that and not have the wheel removable. I need the 50mm anyway so was thinking do I use the spacer to do I get a removable section. I can wire up the horn button with the spacer too.
