i presume they are heavy
heavy duty too
never been on a set but they always favour with dirt jump kids and some free riders
they are quite wide

not sure on hubs unless you mean spin doctors?

(alot are built onto deore hubs)

I like the colours....but I dont do heavy...

If the rims are anything as awful as Halo tyres....

:shock: think I will stay well clear.

Hard to resist a bit of colour though

I have halo tornado rims on sealed halo hubs and they are bombproof, iv never had a problem, iv got them on my teocali set up for freeride/mini dh and the bike weighs 31lb with dh tyres chain guide marzo 66's so I dont think they that heavy, they are proper strong tho, hope this helps
