    Coincidentally, if you don't mind a 3K/glossy finish, you can get a 24H version of the 29XC24 rim shipped immediately from stock at 15% off (so $130-ish + shipping) from Nextie's "leftovers" inventory here:

    Also note that you don't have to use such a narrow rim, the norm is wider. If you go wider you will have many more rim options, and most people run a wider tire in the front anyways.

    In addition, typically rear wheels fail more often than fronts (higher loads and worse spoke angle), so if your front failed it may mean that the days of the rear are numbered. In other words, full wheelset.

    It melted because it was to close to the exhaust of my car

    Fair enough. That's why I said potential answer.
