    32mm-36mm internal width 27.5" rims with good hub engagment, XD, rotors doesn't mater

    I have a Fuse 29er and am looking into 27.5+ wheels, I want something to run a 2.8" tire but also be able to run something smaller without issues. I also want a XD driver body to run a X01/XX1 cassette, save some weight over this 600+ gram monstrosity.

    So I first looked at Industry 9, made in USA and while they have great 30.5mm offerings in basically anything you could ever want their 36mm rims only come in the top dog $1355 price point... little rich for my blood considering my bike was $1800...

    Then I looked at DT Swiss, I would want the 240 hubs not the 350's (can the 350's engagement be upgraded?) and in those options with 35mm width they don't offer XD driver bodys... only Shimano light weight? not even micro spline? WTF....

    Dt has XD driver bodies for even their cheap hubs. 350 can be changed to 54t.

    Any of the 240/350/440 hubs use the same freehubs which are available in hg, XD, and microspline with 18, 36, and 54 tooth ratchet options available. The 240s have more material machined out of the hub shells for lighter weight, and they come with better bearings but if you go with 350s you could always opt for the better bearings when it's time for an overhaul

    On their website is says the 350's are 18 point engagement which would be 20 degrees and the 240's are 36 which would be 10? Then when you speck a 35mm rims it doesn't let you pick a XD driver body on the 1700's or 1501's.

    Where would be a good place to order what I want from?

    The i9's "cheap" hub is a 4 degree engagement but like I said the only 36mm wheel they have has their good hub which is a crazy .52 degree engagement that would have to have like 700 engagement points, but I just don't think I need $1355 wheels.

    Yes, when you buy them, 240s typically come specced with 36 and 350 with 18, but they're easily swappable with no tools so you're not stuck with them. I think the m1700 35 is a good fit for an off-the-shelf wheelset for you. I checked their website and its showing XD driver as a stock option...

    https://www.dtswiss.com/en/products/.../m-1700-spline

    Or, just order a set of custom wheels from a reputable builder. I'd recommend DT 350 classics with upgraded 54t ratchet, double-butted spokes with brass nips, and xm521 rims (or WTB kom light i35 for a cheaper alternative, maybe kom tough for the rear if you're heavy)
