I have the opportunity to buy a a new Giant SLR 0 Aero Disc wheelset 65/42 for a good price.

Originally I considered to buy a Lightbicycles 47 mm rim/ DT Swiss 350 combo with 25 mm outer width with Schwalbe Pro One tubeless tyres.

The Giant wheelset only has a outer rim width of 23 mm and 17 mm internal and would be 200 bucks cheaper.

What would you do?

If you think you'd like to try 25mm tubeless tires I'd go with the Lightbicycles rims. The Giant wheels were designed for "old school" 23mm tires.

The problem with the giant wheel is it is too narrow unless your sticking to 23mm tyres or even 22mm tyres.
