Any suggestions? I am on fence over 24's or 35's.

Can you share where?? As I stated, I just ordered RS80 C24's for ~$550.......but I think I am going to send them back in favor of a discounted (hopefully heavily) set of DA C24's.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJmdb1Oe2h8" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; That's only 4 minutes but we did that to those wheels for about 20 hours over a few days while shooting that and they still haven't needed to be trued. After the video they went into the race circuit so we could see how they would hold up there. So far 1000's of miles, with a about 200 miles offroad and including a 3rd in a stage at Tour of Gila, and we've not touched them since they came out of the box.

oh and sfo423, if you crack the rim so often I would recommend the DA wheels for their long warranty.. even if you crack it after the 3rd year your cost of ownership isn't that high per year.
