Okay I know their both fairly bad but given the choice between a green 36h star circle rim laced to an unknown dk cassette(an OEM version of the alpha I think). And a 48h poverty rim laced to some cassette can't remember. What would you choose.... Or should I just save up for a demolition 36h chrome zero laced to a demolition rouge cassette?

Obviously the demolition is the better of the 3. But is most expensive.
The poverty I know almost nothing about. But is cheepest. And has 48spokes, with is good cuz I'm heavy
And the star circle is what I have stock.

Demolition.

I weigh about 240-250 depending on the week, and mine is over a year old without issues. I recommend learning to true wheels just so you can adjust as time goes on, as all wheels start to loosen spokes over time.

it's a Poverty hub & Alienation black sheep rim.

personally I would go with saving up for the Demolition option, but out of the Poverty or other wheel, I'd say Poverty. I had a Poverty cassette years ago and it wasn't that bad. Pretty similar to an Odyssey Hazard cassette, with a needle bearing in the driver too. If I knew how to take care of it back then it probably would have lasted longer too
