Hi guys,

For my Concorde Squadra bike (http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=114690&start=15) I am looking for some nice silver low profile rims. My first thought was to go with H Plus Son TB14 rims, but I am having doubts if the wide profile will clear the front fork.

After some searching I came across Araya RC-540 rims. They definitely look the part, but will they hold up under a heavy guy and will they keep looking the part after the ano wears off?

I would love to hear your opinions!

How heavy are you? You could go with the 36 hole version.

This how they look when used. They are mostly used on track bikes.
