    I can't think of one. But I'd love to know if there are any.

    FatLab is the only one I've ever known to make a 27.5 x 55mm rim and I'm not even sure if they still exist. Stans Hugo would be the closest AL option that I know of at 53mm, which have been discontinued but can still be found. Then there are a few 50mm AL options (i45mm) such as Mulefut, Arc 45, WTB KOM light & tough 45mm, Duroc 50, and WTB Scraper i45.

    Inside width.

    55mm is optimal but Iím open to other sizes.

    The only ones that are close that I'm aware of are the Nextie Black Eagle at 58mm, and there's also a 27.5 Mulefut I think that came standard on the Rocky Mountain Suzie Q.

    Nextie makes a 58mm?

    I donít remember seeing those on their site.

    Doesnít Mikesee run a 55mm carbon on his bike?

    They call them 65ís but that is external, mine measure 57.XXmm internal.

    btlos.com check them out. I have not purchased built wheels from them. I have built up a set of the 65mm rims and a set of the 105mm rims. Will be putting in an order soon for some gravel rims.

    Unless I'm missing something they don't have any 27.5x65mm rims.

    Yes they do. You will need to ask the very pleasant lady about them. I just finished a ride on my fat bike on road using the btlos rims with Schwalbe g-one 27.5 x 3.00 (2.8 on Web site) all round lites. Great setup for summer riding. They built up very easy and imho are the base of a great wheel set.

    I have a Stan's Hugo 27.5 wheel set up for sale if you're interested. I have them set up tubeless with Vittoria Bomboloni 27.5 x 3 tires. I can supply the rear hub with either a Shimano or XD driver, and have an extra set of Schwalbe Nobby Nics 27.5 x 3 tires.

    The only reason I'm selling these is because I switched over to a 29 plus setup on my VerHauen.

    Please send me an email if you're interested
