Im thinking of building some 55mm clinchers on some CK hubs I already have. Are Light Bicycle rims okay?

700C road rim, with special material and New high TG resin, it will provide better braking surface performance for your clinchers so you can try that. Hope it will work for you.

I had 2 sets built up by my bike mechanic with Chris King R45 Center Lock Disc Hubs with 24 Pillar Aero Spokes (one set Thru-Axles and the other Quick Releases)
Both set are 36mm Front and 46mm Rear.
Did about 500KM on each, so far no problems and very stiff.
Can't comment on braking as they are Disc Brakes.
The Rims' Internal Width are 21mm, so Schwalbe Pro-One Tubeless 25mm comes out as 28mm and the 28mm comes out as 31mm (measured at the fatest part of the tyre)

I also have a set of the 36mm LB wheels. 6000km in, very happy.

Light Bicycle have a newer 56mm deep rim> It's 30mm wide for better aero, almost as wide as the 64mm deep 32mm wide wheels Cannondale just released. You'll need a new frame to have 30mm clearance. ... lable.html

If you have the frame clearance, that would be the better choice, but if you don't enough clearance, the 55mm rim will work, but don't go wider than 23mm tyres.

I ve just read some bad things here about some Chinese companies not sending warranty replacements. Are Light Bicycle reputable or is it a risk?

The company that is not sending waranty replacement is Farsport.

Light-Bicycle has pretty much perfect record so far. (as far as i know)
