I just put them on, to combine with some "slicks". They are well made. Very solid. I'm not gonna worry too much about curbs, potholes, etc. Shipping was prompt and packaging was excellent.

I've had 2 sets of these on my hard tail over the years and they are bombproof. Where others have tacoed their wheels, these baby's have prevailed.

Awesome, burly wheels that roll well - Jul 31, 2013

I have had these rim for a few years now, I trued the wheels after a few hundred miles like I was told and they have remained true. I've had to adjust the hub bearings ONCE, and over 1000 miles later they are still great. I ride hard, jump and huck and hit stuff - these wheels have been burly and the price cannot be beat. I've been salty with my new bikes wheels as the hubs come out of adjustment, spokes constantly need tightening etc - these older rhinolites spoiled me. Fantastic deal, great wheels, thanks pricepoint!
