For rims i would got with an Odyssey 7kA or a Sun Rhynolite. DT or Marwi Spokes.

Apparently those Primo rims aren't too hot.

The footjam idea with your buddy puttin' his foot in the tire has allready been done but it's still awesome.

Ody 7ka or Ody Haz Lights... I wouldn't trust the fly rims and the Primo rims are just crap.

im not getting a gsport cause they suck balls. i have had no trouble with my primo rim. but a 7ka might not be a bad idea. fly rims are pretty heavy to. even with all the drilling.

This has to be the dumbest post I've ever seen. G-Sport rims are amazing. Primo Balance rims suck. Fly rims are not heavy, they weigh about as much as a hazard light. Pure stupidity.

Heavy or not the holes and just the looks of the rims are enough to drive me away.

My new back wheels going to be a 7kA for sure. I'm so done with this stupid Shadow hub giving me all these problems. Profile mini to a 7kA here i comeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Why would you say the g-sport rim blows. What is your reasoning behind that?

Profiles are amazing but still not worth the price. Fly rims look great but i'd only have one on the front (in pink )

Word. If I ever bought a Fly rim, it would go in the front (although there are lighter options (and cheaper)), and it would probably be some cool color such as pink.
