    unless your rims are beatup....don't spend the cash just to upgrade

    Outlaws are cheap and are surprisely pretty good and strong

    How much you looking to spend?

    Azonic Outlaws and Transition Revolutions are great wheels for under $300. Outlaws can be found at almost any online retailer and Revolutions can be bought directly from Transition and come in a bunch of sweet colors.

    My first suggestion, don't be freeriding on a Jekyll, get a new bike if that's you wanna roll.

    Second, check the Outlaws. There kind of heavy, but a solid build and you can't do much better on the cheap.

    Mavic DeeTrax are pretty decent but a little more $$ than the Outlaws (~$350). Not exactly light either but strong.

    Mavis 823's... i love those wheels. they can be expensive depending on the hubs you lace them with but you will not be bummed. however i agree dont get new wheels just to get em. i rode Single Tracks SL1's until they broke.

    Dont get freeride wheels for that bike. I've also got an 05 jekyll and was considering doing the same thing and making it a FR/AM bike. instead I threw down the cash and got an 07 sx trail which i love. Im actually getting some lighter stuff for my jekyll. if you try to beef up the jekyll youll probably break the bike and yourself. The difference between the two bikes is like night and day.
