Could be a design issue...plus they aren't in high demand anymore.

High supply - low demand = discontinuation.

Not true.

This is one of many styles that the company who now owns SSR has decided they will no longer produce. This has nothing to do with the strength or quality of the wheel. SSR is under new ownership and thus styles and models are changing.
