A really good friend of mine rides it rear and he rides hard plus he has a bmx shop, so i'm quiet sure they will hold up!

Heard horrid things about the RS, I have a Cinema and it's strong and I love it at first I had my doubts but, after riding it I have no regrets. Then again I really don't like Animal therefor I may not be credible due to my strong disliking of the brand...

Sweet. Can anyone else back this up? i know the 777 are strong. i'm basically looking for something on the cheaper side and still strong. not to cheap tho, i was thinking about alienation delinquent rims but ehh.

Multiple things from people "tacoing" them to them being and I quote "uncomfortably flexible" then again I don't like Animal and have never ridden one but, In This thread there seems to be quite a bit of bad towards the RS... And the thread is only a few days old.

I love my Cinema and I have had really good experiences with GSport and Shadow Stuns I also had a good experience with a Demolition Zero... Just a couple rims you may want to consider.

One of my friends has a 777, he never rides tho so i wouldn't know if its good. 2 of my friends have demo zeros, they're nice, they run them with really loose spokes too and the rims still manage to hold up. G-sports are amazing, from experience and from what i hear and see. i've never seen a shadow rim however

That's fresh man, it's a good choice honestly there are bad reviews on ever rim, no rim is going to last forever just get what you like.

for real. Thats why i was looking at the RS rim. It looks awesome. But the cinema is probably a cheaper and stronger choice, i'm gonna slap some white walls on whatever i get. hopefully it'll look dope

Animal have never had much luck with rims, Ive got some Eclat bondis on my current bike ive had them for a few years now still straight as an arrow taken some serious abuse too. I would reccomend Eclat rims to anyone, get the welded ones though, not the pinned ones.

I love Animal but that's the only thing I wouldn't ride made by them, their rims. I guess you can't knock it until you've tried it but I've heard a lot of bad shit about them and also, some friend of mine folded one...

Bullshit. I bought The RS hoping it would last me forever. It seemed promising made from 7005 AL and nice construction but it turned out to be such a piece of shit. It got out of true so much. Got flat spots running high pressure and overall looked like a cheap stock rim. Worst thing i ever bought. Get a Hazard Lite or that 777

Ok, thats what i'm thinkin now. I wanna get a whole new wheel set so paying for 2 g-sport rims is much more expensive then 2 777's or 2 hazards. does anyone know how good the kink orion rim is?
