One or the other, life or death, what'll it be?

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

Much of a muchness. Rhyno lites are cooler

Rhino lytes are lighter and have eyelets
For riding flat they are easier on the hands
It’s what I chose on the rear to hold up to all my whoppers

Rhyno Lites are pinned so I'd go with Hazard Lites.

Yeah, I'm just looking to soup up my 24" Brian Foster...not gonna be doing any tricks, just going from work and back and whatnot...not worried about weight as much

Well then you want some Alex triple walls

I think those would be a bit overkill...just a bit

The XLs are welded though

I'd still go with Hazards either way for actual bmx riding, but if he's just going to be riding it to & from work then either version of the Rhynolites will be fine and save some money too

Get the rhynolites. The hazards are stronger, but you probably don't need them. They do cost a lot more too.

I got Hazard Lites front and back and I'd say spend the extra little bit and get them . I've had like no issues and they barely get out of true

hazard lites hae a reputation for being a good rear and front wheel.
rhynolites are lighter.
i used a 2ndhand ryhnolite as a front wheel for years until i blew out the front wheel on a huge 360 to flat. well i blew like half my spokes. i then relaced and tru'd it that afternoon and rode the crooked wheel for another month. thumbs up for a rhyno-lite in the front.

im now a bit of a lighter rider and use a envy-lite in the front and a birdcage in the rear. i wish i could get 48h in the rear, though...
i would trust a 48h rhynolite as my rear wheel

rhynolite in the front, hazard in the rear seems like a reasonable setup
