if u grind its probably not worth spending that much money on them because they will eventually get fucked up unless u have guards

and they dotn seem like they will hold if u do big gaps on jump big stair sets or anytihng i dont think its worth all that money

look at my back rim, its a 48 with ti spokes but I don't grind but its stiff and looks so good with the primo hoola hoop.

Yeah it doesn't make much sense because its cheaper to just go with a 36, and at the same time you don't really want ti spokes on a 36. Only 48 cross 4 pattern. Its only a few ounces lighter but its stronger than a 36 with stainless, however you don't want to grind on a ti spoke period. And plus rotating weight is special in a sense, but I would just go with a 36 with stainless spokes. L8

I don't know how titanium is going to snap any easier than steel. It is just so expensive that if they do snap or grind a way you'll be burning money. They are for trails, race, and park riders and street riders who stick to rotation tricks manuals and other styles that don't lead to grinding away your spokes. I think they are a bit much but they are sick as hell. 80 bucks for 50 of them. LOL you better think about that shit. L8

rotating weight "weighs" more than dead weight. But a 36 will leave you with lots of cash and if you want to grind... grind, those spokes are cheap as hell to replace.

i was thinking bout it but even if u get a 36 spoke rim itl cost u over 100$ just for spokes

Why not just get a 36 spoke wheel. As long as you keep the spokes tight you won't have any problems. I have been running a 36 spoke wheel forever and have hung up on quarter pipes and came up short on gaps and 360's, my wheel is still straight.
