Have you considered the DT Swiss R 460? I ride with a couple of chaps at the club who’ve been very happy with them. They’re only 23mm wide (so not as wide as the HED Belgian Plus rims) They about half the price of he HED’s but with very similar quality (apparently).
I have built 2 wheelset with DT swiss R460.
These are for the belgian winter (rain + salt on roads in winter)

I really like the Quills makes the my corsa 25 mm into 28 mm so I can just fit them in m canyon ultimate.

I have bought 3 bitex hubsets at a closeout for a bargain price and looking for cheap very very wide rims.

the dt offerings (R460 and R511) are very fairly priced on bike24. Pity, because I can't stand that retailer, ridiculously slow order processing and shipping, oh, and they do have higher tax rates (VAT 27%) if I purchase from my native country... :noidea:

Fortunately, AFAIK, the local dt distributor can offer the same, or even better prices.. :thumbup:
