demolition, sun 4-play, sun bfr, sun big city, or if you could find them atomlab trailking or trail pimp. those are all the rims you need to know about, they are THE BEST!

it all really depends on what you want. first you have to decide whether you want tall or low wall rims (i would recommend low wall, otherwise the tires will be a pain to get on and off - i cannot stress this enough)
then you have to decide whether you want to go for strength or light weight. if you are running it on the front you can go for lighter rims generally, but if it is for the rear you will want a quite strong rim. however having said that some people can run light rims on the rear without any problems, it all depneds on you, but here are some good rims:

tall wall (lighter)

odyssey hazard lite
odyssey 7000

tall wall (stronger)

primo hoola hoop
sun 4 play
araya rb j1
alex sura j

low wall (lighter)

sun rhyno lite xl
araya x7
alex supra beta
araya/velocity aero rim

low wall (stronger)

sun big city
demolition low wall
hoffman high roller

well bigs (if that is your real name) the primo hoola hoop CAN come with a cassette, simply because if you want to get the rim laced to a cassette hub, then .......you can. just ask a shop, or wherever you buy your rim from, get a cassette hub, and lace them up.
if you mean do primo make stock wheels using a primo hoola hoop rim, primo spokes and primo cassette hubs. i dont know. however like i just said, get the parts and get the laced at a shop. generally if you buy all the parts from the same shop they will lace the wheel for free.

oh and Rule (if that is your real name), i dont know the exact height of the odyssey rim, but one way whether you can tell whether a rim is tall or not by a simple glance is to see whether is has "cut-off indents" in the inner section of the rim. for example find a picture of a sun big city rim. see how on the inner circumference of the rim it kind of cuts in, that almost always means that it is a low wall rim. if you get a picture of a odyssey hazard lite rim the edge of the rim is totally flat and straight right? that means it is a tall rim.

why is everyone still asking about which rims to get? seems as though everyone just gives the same responses in every one of these topics doesn't it?

very good point... people, there is a a search thinggy so you dont have to repeatedly keep making new Topics about the same damn thing...

if you would like to bring the topic up again.... just reply to the topic and it will be brought to the top of the list... so we won't have this trouble all of the time.
