I am thinking of changing my hubs on my mountain bike becuase they seem a little laterally weak for my taste. Can I keep the same rim, just change the hub and have a stiffer wheel as an end result? I plan on using similar spokes to what is on there right now. Thanks for the help!

I'm not sure how the hubs play into the rigidity of the wheel. I think spoke count/ gauge / tension and a stout rim make for a stiff wheel. Talk to a wheel builder, maybe you can keep the hub and the rims, and just have the wheels relaced to get the desired result.
