Hi,
Any suggestions for what DT spokes and nipples to use building up a xt hub (or possibly dt hub) + ex 5.1d rims wheelset.

I'm looking for wider rims (at least 28mm vs 23/24mm), hopefully can run slightly lower pressures than normal and have even fatter tire contact for better traction in really steep uphill and downhill (slow riding). No jumps, hucks. Ride smooth. 150lb rider aiming for sensibly light wider rimmed wheelset. Not looking for absolute lightest if it means hassles in a year or two already.

thanks,

I'm 170 lbs. and have Super comp spokes and alloy nips, pro build. Ride aggressive trail on a 6" travel bike, no problems at all.
