    AM DS28 DISC OR FUNN XLRATER Rims? Thanks!

    I want to get a pair of white rims. I've read similiar posts regarding white rims, but they pertained to more urban riding. Although I do ride a lot in the streets I dont do any heavy jumping 2-3 ft. max (for now), I mainly ride XC, all-mountain. I havent read much about either of these two rims. I dont care so much about weight. I just want a dependable, strong, white rim. Any suggestions on these two listed below? Any help would be much appreciated.

    I have the DS28 white rims. They are matte white and not glossy, so they collect fingerprints pretty easily, but doesn't really matter once the bike gets dirty.They have pinned and sleeved, and I see the Funn rims are acutally welded... if that matters to you.
    They are strong and tall and I have no problem running them on my FR HT with hadley hubs.

    The FUNN rims are actually made by SUN-RINGLE, and these ones are just white versions of the S.O.S rims. Which makes them pretty good IMO.

    The Syncros DS28 is identical to Halo's Freedom disc, also available in white. Both made in the same factory in Taiwan.

    Awesome rim, very light and strong. I run black ones on a spare wheelset...
    Perfect choice for for an all mountain bikey. Because they are the same rim with different stickers, just buy whichever one you can get cheaper (Halo?).
