search online you can find written tips or video tips. or just study your back wheel and ttry to do it by looking at it. thats how i first learned to do a 48 hub wheel studying a wheel i already had. took some time but i figured it out then after that it got easier a bit and now i mostly work on 36 cause thats what i run. make sure you used a 4 cross pattern or it will look shitty. and make sure you lace right and have a good valve hole clearance or pumping your tire will be hard

4 runs of 12... Or 6 runs of 8 if you are crafty. Or just buy mag wheels.

yo i had the same problem. you could relaly hurt yourslef bad if you lace it wrong. you gotta lace it in a pattern that is completely symmetrical. like start on the bottom, then lace the top, and back and forth. but yo do the right side, then when youre done, push it down and do the other side. thats what i heard. but its really a bitch, i just bought a new rim. i know its on ridebmx.com

but i bought a new rim, cuz i read an artical that said a dude laced his own rim, landed on it too hard, the spokes blew out, and stabbed him in the back of the head, killing him. so live and buy a new rim.
