I have Sun Ringle' SOS's on my bike because they came stockbut they are pretty flexy.
Ive been thinking about getting new rims for a while but I didnt have any bank.

What do you guys suggest?

Thanks rfr

^^^what he said

You can get a set anywhere from 225-275 bones.

Just remember, with wheels:

Cheap. Strong. Light <===you may choose only two

Outlaws or revo's +1000. I'm on a cracked set of outlaws and they just keep taking the punishment. The hub finally loosened up. I've got a brand new set sitting on the shelf waiting for the old (1+ years of AZ boulder bashing) to give up, they are still going strong. I just picked up a set of revo's for the covert I'm building and looking forward to properly flogging them as well.

If the wheels are in good condition,no dents,bent rims etc.I would verify spoke tension or have a quality wheel builder check them out.Alot of stock wheels are machine built and usally need some retrueing and retensioning after a little riding.What you want is the highest balanced tension that the rim can handle.This will be the case with alot of prebuilt wheelsets wether they came on the bike or not.

The tension is fine but they are a little flat spotted and cracking along the seems.
I'm afraid of them tacoing on me (bad experiance) plus Ive got some money and I really want to upgrade my bike. It will inspire new confidence in riding.

And here's yet another vote for Azonic Outlaws. Transition Revolutions are also great for the money (they are more than the Azonics, though).

I've been using a set of the Azonics on my Uzzi-VPX and am 100% happy with them.
