    New question here. ? ^ value park use DH wheels w/ 35mm rims?

    For occasional downhill park and shuttle use wheels, what are some decent wheel sets, up to $350 or so?

    I just want to get on the hill with something that will hold up and carry DH tires well. Planning at first on using Minions 2.7 front & 2.5 rear.

    I'll try ghetto tubeless, so a rim's flat inside shoulder makes a difference.

    Weight is not really important, or is it?.

    Near 35mm wide rims.

    20mm front axle to fit up to a 170mm travel Lyrik.

    135 x 12mm rear for a 6.5 inch inch travel bike.

    Thanks!! in advance for any clues

    I agree with the Azonics. For the pricepoint, they can't be beat.

    How quick is the rear hub engagement? I suppose it doesn't matter much for casual downhill. Or does it?

    And are they easy to pull apart to service the pawls?

    hub engagement is 24, so you won't be as happy as Jeff below. But they work and easy to service

    Friends that are sponsored by Azonics love them. I got a new set of Tranny Revolution 32's that rocked for $325

    Outlaws or the Transitions...they function very similar and either would work well. I have a set of the Outlaws and they have survived several years of Whistler/N.Shore without fuss.

    Sound's like Outlaws are a winner for my DH park needs. After a few years on Hadley's 72 point engagement for trail uses, I didn't want 18 point.

    Although Kyle is doing just fine with an 18

    Yup, for the money, can't really beat Outlaws.
