"...It's expensive sure but it's not too out of the ballpark once you realize you're just buying piecemeal if you go with MATCO or stock..."

I ordered the Match RV-10 kit. Nothing piecemeal about that...

I really like the Red Anodized...just not for that difference in price...

Also, no parking brake for me. Can't remember the last time I used a parking brake in a GA airplane...YMMV

Just like everything, everyone has their opinion. I personally think the Berringer wheels and brakes look fantastic. Sadly I decided not to upgrade.

I did elect to order the parking brake kit. Totally a personal choice and probably not necessary, but then I have a number of "upgrades" that I wanted to do that weren't necessary

Just got my shipment notice for my fuse kit so hopefully I'll have enough space in my garage when it arrives.

My point was that kit doesn't come with tires, nosewheel, or brake cylinders right? Granted Vans of course sells you all of that stock, but I was just pointing out that the Beringer Kit comes with a lot more stuff than the Matco Kit, hence the difference in price.

The kit I bought came with all of the required brake and wheel parts...I got the tubes and tires from Desser...

My mileage varies...I use it all the time; especially when itís windy and I want to get out and not have it move while I chock it.
