    Default Wheel rebuild

    I am looking for a new rimset to rebuild with my Sun Ringle Dirty Flea hubset. The original rims are too narrow for most tires. I'm leaning towards a Stan's or Stan's endorsed rim with BST, which works way better than a tubeless conversion kit.
    Any recommendations?

    I like my Velocity P-35's. Really wide at 35 mm, not light, not for everybody but works for me. They are red, so they go faster.

    try the Blunt's then.. I started with the blunts, now run the P-35's. Loved them both but I think I'll be going back to the blunts. Reason is, well because the P-35's are SOOO wide they roll the contact area out wider and the tires don't have enough tread width, once you sit my fat arse the tire pillows out and the side walls start to become part of that contact point and I'm ending up wit ha bunch of sidewall rips. I use a taller/knurly-er tire on the front, but on the rear I like a lower/tighter tread and it's just not enough coverage on the sides.. Probably going with the Blunt (not the SL) on the rear and leave the P-35 up front ..

    I've had really good luck with the wider Stans rims. I have about a season on them tubeless and they have been a great set of rims and I haven't had many tubeless problems - at first a little more tape was needed inside the rim, since then all has been good.

    Pacenti TL28 or DL31. Nice rims, width, eyeleted as well which some don't like about the Stans rims. Light also for the width.

    Grab some Flow EXs, close enough in width to what you're looking for and light enough as well. Super easy to set up tubeless to boot.
