    Non boost 27.5+ wheelset?

    Looking for a cheap option if possible, reasonably wide for 2.8's, with a 15mm front 142 rear, just to try out +. If it works, I can sell em and get a proper wheelset, but it would be nice to spend less to try it first.

    Anyone know of anything fitting these criteria?

    I'm satisfied knowing that what I wear during my "day" job makes me more of a man than you'll ever be.

    Life is easy. Figure out the price of whatever it is you want, then pay that price.

    I'm also rocking the Heist 30 and Rekons. Great combo in my opinion.

    Only issue I have with that option, is the "nice" wheelset I would get is only $40 more, however those do look really nice and have great reviews.

    Thanks for the suggestion, found a set of "Quality Wheels" at Treefort, 140 for the front, 165 for the rear. Not a bad price, and should be able to get most of it back if I eBay em after some testing.

    As for tires, I would most definitely be trying to Maxxis. Love them on my 29er.
