You might check with light-bicycle if they have their deeper u-shaped rims available. I think they have 50mm versions. I have the U45 and they are nice -- especially without brake track / for disc-brake wheels, since I see reports of issues with their brake tracks (I assume disc is what you were looking for). 24.5mm outside, 17.1mm inside , so reasonably wide. These are tubeless ready and while I have not tried tubeless on these, they do seem to have very smooth beads -- and generally seem to be constructed with tight tolerances. I think that was the main issue with making the Farsports tubeless (near impossible to seat): bead was fairly uneven/not-smooth on the inside, took lots of soapy water and then latex along the outside.
I ride the U45 as my every day road-bike wheels. They have gotten a fair bit of abuse including some gravel. So the 3k surface has a few scratches now, but they have held up perfectly for the past ~1200 miles.

I'd like to know if members here are happy customers and have bought more than one product from either companies.
Also, wich manufacturer would you choose from ?
HongFu or Farsports ?
I bought a cyclocross fork from HongFu and was pleased by the product.
Thanks for the heads up
