Strengths:    Strong rims for the weight, good hubs that are fast and strong as well.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
For the price they are awesome. I doubt you could find a better wheel set-up for the price. I'm over 200lbs and I do a couple of drops sometimes (no more than 3 feet) and they stay straight and true. Hubs are alot faster than my old stock ones. Good deal.

Strengths:    Bomb proof, Great Value, disk or rim brake compatible. Stay true even for a 215lb rock bashing rider.

Weaknesses:    Not the lightest but I will take durability over lighter rotational weight. I don't race so I'm not weight weinie.

Bottom Line:   
Flexability to do disk or rim brakes. Most important is price and reliability. They fit well with my 2.1 tire. Probably not great with 1.9. I gave them 5 chiles for value and rating because these wheels do what they are suppost to. Again not for XC racing but weekend warriors should not hesitate. 2 wheels for 150!
