Makes me cringe just looking at the dam things.
I'd be more concerned about the quality of the metal work / fixings as you can easily upgrade the wheels.

I could return these for a refund as they haven't been used, but I have drilled the transom ready to fit brackets, I imagine the holes will be drilled in the wrong place if I buy a different brand of launch wheels

I'd keep them and give the wheels / tyres the benefit of the doubt.
If they are the same as the ones I had and puncture continually you can always change the wheels / tyres for better ones.
The main thing is that the brackets and the metal structure of the wheels legs.
As you've drilled the transom I wouldn't want to change them for other wheels that don't marry up with the drill holes.
I'm sure the metal work is up to the job no worries - not so sure about the rubber.

Cheers kaman, thanks for your advice

I will keep them and see how I get on, the metal seems ok, like you say wheels are not expensive and I could possibly try different inner tubes

Not exactly delighted so far though, 145 for a flat tyre

I'm sure I'll be smiling again once afloat 👍
