thou shalt not have odd rims.
I disagree on the matching rims... back in the day on my race bike I used campag rims on the front (Atek) and Mavic (M231) on the rear.
The Atek was lighter but the Mavic was stronger but heavier (eyeletted, better to take the strain of the dishing) - both however were silver!!!
Better to say - "though shalt not run different colour rims front and rear".
Sidenote - why did CD or dark anodised rims always die quicker than silver rims? I gave up on CD rims after I had a few crack either at the breaking surface or near the eyeletts. Silver rims didn't seem to suffer from the same cracking and I managed to wear the rims right down to the box section
. Could this be another thread?
I still prefer silver rims for this reason especially where rim brakes make the sides silver anyway (but I willingly admit to being aestheticaly challanged
