Looking to try out plus size on my tallboy 3, but not looking to drop a ton of cash on a set of wheels to do it. Will only be running 2.8 tires, so I don't need SUPER wide rims - 35-40 is just fine.

Any word on if the Mercury wheels are any good? I'm not heavy (160lbs), and don't do big drops to flat or anything like that, but we do have very rocky, rough terrain around here.

Alternative to this is to see if I can find a set of take-off wheels at one of the local bike shops with a DT swiss/Arc setup or something similar.
