Greg Mulkey Q and A:
Q: What is the company most well known for? (Product, service, innovation?)
A: Raceline Wheels is mostly known for its Beadlock Wheels.
Q: How do you test your products?
A: We really beat the heck out of our wheels to test every single element. We test them in our company, put them under stress teat, lower the PSI, and beat them in order to get rid of imperfections. We also take our wheels out to the races to run them through real world simulations, and again we beat the heck out of them to really test their integrity.
Q: What is a piece of advice that you want to give to the next generation of inventors/owners/employees?
A: My advice is to NOT just dive fully into something. Sit back at find those who are great at what they do and experienced. You can always learn more from others than on your own. This lets you learn from their mistakes and duplicate their wins.
Q: Duct Tape or zip ties?
A: Zip ties definitely; there’s never a big enough zip tie.
