I got a freecoaster yesterday, but it's a 48h hub shell.... Anyway, I want to pair it with a Bone Deth PH48 Front Hub but am trying to decide what may be nicer for a rim set...

Mocha G-SPORT Ribcage F&R
-Weighs less than the Generator
-Wider than the Generator
-Costs $39.99 (excl. shipping) on BMX Guru

Chrome Hoffman Generator F&R
-Weighs more than the Ribcage
-Skinnier width than the Ribcage
-Costs $44.95 (excl. shipping) on Empire BMX

EDIT (1-17-2016 / 5:20AM)
"There's also a G-SPORT Rollcage 48h in Black for $44.99 on BMX Guru"

The Ribcage is a little bit lighter, but is wider so I guess it can handle an under-rotation or any side to side force a bit better than the Generator.

The Generator is a little bit heavier, meaning it's probably thicker than the Ribcage, but it's skinnier in width, so maybe it cannot handle any under rotated tricks or side to side force as much.

I honestly don't really know, money wise, I should go with the G-SPORT, but maybe there's some other more technical stuff I am missing out on with the two.

OR Are these just too close comparison in some ways to really consider one better than the other? Idk. they both seem good but there's only a need to buy one set for what I'm doing.

Whatever you get don't pick "chrome" rims. Chrome doesn't do well on aluminum so only pick chrome rims if you are fine with it chipping or bubbling. If you're not on a budget, I'd go with the Bone Deth Biodome rims in polished which is a 48h rim too. Otherwise between your 2 original choices I would pick the G-Sport.

Yeah I am leaning towards the G-Sport a lot more.

The Ribcage is unquestionably the strongest rim out of your options. By far.
