If you recycled the aluminum rims alone, you might come out dollars ahead.
These rims Will have blems in the white powder coat finish at the top of the bead hook. They are like that out of the packaging. With a tire mounted, most of the issues will not be visible. These wheels are now being built with Shimano Deore M525 series QR 6-bolt disc hubs, that are MTB 8/9/10/11 speed cassette compatible.
Don't look down. Not yet at least. Understand that not all MTB wheel sets are meant to be light weight. Some are meant to be heavy duty. If your sense of value is correlated to sheer volume of metal, you're going to absolutely love this King Pin wheel set. Built with Shimano's outstanding Alivio 475 MTB series 6-bolt disc QR hub set and black DT Swiss stainless straight gauge spokes with chrome plated brass nipples, this wheel set whole heartedly represents the term "over-built".
These wheels will require the use of 6-bolt disc rotors, and the rear Shimano freehub will work with a Shimano MTB series (or compatible) 8/9/10/11 speed cassette.
Okay, it's time, go ahead and check out the wheel set weight, and recognize that given the wheel set pricing, this may be the absolute best value/most material for your buck wheel set, currently listed anywhere on the entire internet.
