Okay so I just got a WeThePeople Justice 2012 . I got red grips on it , and i want red rims , red pedals , and a red stem . What are some cheap red rims that i could get , preferably for the same price I could sell my rims . I have a SALT “AM” rim, aero single wall, 36h and a SALT “AM” rim, straight single wall, 36h . How much could I sell these rims ? And how much could I buy red rims for ?

Nobodies gonna pay you more than 2 dollars for single walled rims off a used stock bike. Sorry bro. but if you're looking for red rims on the cheap side that are not great but still better than your current ones, look into Alienation rims.

I'd just save up and buy a better rim. Like the demolition zero or something like that or just get black rims like odyssey hazard lite or any other rim.

It's how many walls or layers of metal the rim has inside. More walls for more strength. although triple is strongest, most BMXers today use double.

Check this out Not the best wheel but its a lot better than single wall. Im assuming you dont know how to lace wheels so you might as well buy complete wheels since getting them laced is expensive.

I have the redline monster kit in red and it looks really good. its an anodized red. rims are alienation black sheep with generic hubs but they are fully sealed. good kit for the money.

It varies from shop to shop. Ask your local shop. You can also read or watch how to's on youtube. I built up my first wheels and have gotten pretty good at it since. It's tedious work, but fairly easy when done correctly. But i don't recommend building them yourself if you're not willing or just don't want to mess them up.

My local charges $40 to lace and true, each wheel.(lacing is putting the spokes in, trueing means to make straight after it's been laced) Maybe lace it yourself, make sure it's right and have a shop true it? That could reduce the price a bit.

When I first started gathering the parts for my wheels, I asked my local what they charge for spokes and lacing, they said $1 for spokes, $1 per spoke to lace. I built them myself.
