Just wanted to hear from anyone whose ridden them, how they are. They'd be laced to a freecoaster/Simple Eject front hub, 4 hub guards, 4 pegs, so they'd see abuse.

you could go with a sun big baller or something? i have no experience with them but they seem like sun's toughest rims and they're solid from what i've heard. i'd wait for someone else to chime in on the big baller.

A local whos REALLY good (sponsored by Standard and I believe has his own sig frame through them, the Juke) runs them religiously. I believe he has Rhyno Lite XLs. My friend also ran a Big Baller which he drilled a ton of holes in for 5+ years with no problems. Hes a park rider but he has a street god style. He lands almost everything to flat. Im talking he gets max air over a box jump and overshoots to flat almost every time. And about 90% of pro/semi pro riders in my area wont run anything other than a Sun Envy in the front.

They are also the only rims that Tree felt worthy enough to use for their complete wheels.

So are they good? HELL YES.
