    Good DH Wheelset?

    Im looking to get a new wheelset this season and am not sure what to get. I don't want to spend a whole lot but want them to be strong and reliable. They will be used for mostly recreational downhill and a few races. Any suggestions?

    i made a post about a month ago with same topic. conclusion was pretty much Azonic Outlaws (which I just bought tonight from wheelworld) I was tempted by transitions too but had a discount at wheelworld so went with the outlaws...

    if ur budget is under 300 those seem to be the best choices.

    after you put in your CC info, it has an order summary and down next to where you click order now, there is a box for a code above an order comments box

    type in the code and hit update order and it will refresh with the discount applied

    Damn, I was hopin to get in on the flaming for not searching... honestly there's a Wheels post like every week. You don't even need the search button, just scroll through posts .

    What about Halo wheels? From what I hear the rims are tough as snot but kinda heavy.

    code still works, i used it sunday to order my outlaws..... which i found out today they were out of

    cambria has them for 240 and there is a free shipping code floating around these forums somewhere.....


    Ima call WW tomorrow and see if I can't just get a set when they get them back in stock for the same price i originally ordered them from. if they say no, gonna order from cambria

    I don't why I don't get the codes. I get promo emails from them. I must need to buy something first.

    Wouldn't putting Hadleys on 823s cost about the Same as Deemax?

    called WW today. they will have them back in stock by latest next Monday, but probably earlier. and i get a set at the discounted price.... very satisfied with WW.

    but yea, price point has them the cheapest, along with cambria unless you want them in anything other than black 135mm, anything else is 10-30 bucks more

    Ebay can be a good place also . I scored 2 sets of deemax each set with tires/rotors and cassettes. I paid less than 300 for each pair and they were like new.
