Wheel master WTB wheels?
Anyone tried these wheels? I am north of 250lbs and need a cheap wheel set! It seems that even if my pocket were larger, I would still have this issue... But I am a 6'4 dude that weighs about 250 and just looking to build a basic classic steel frame roadie. (Peugeot)
Here are the wheels that I am considering
The rear is likely spaced for 135mm.
The tires that are intended for them (622-28/40) may be too large to fit in your frame.
You probably want to look for "road" wheels, not Hybrid.
Also check the spacing on the front. A lot of older bikes have <100mm spacing on the fork.
They DON'T spring well!
Some front hubs will have a 2-3MM spacer on each side that can be removed (and shorten the axle) to make them fit.
Thanks for the info, I should have included more info. I currently have a set of Alex wheels that I picked up off CL that have 36h and tires of 700x 35! Bike rear is already sprung and fits those wheels with no issue. I am just concerned with these wheels bc the build quality may not be all that great per the info I received from other folks on the forum. The wheels I currently have are Alex TA 20 which were apparently OEM whelks for Marin bikes with Marin hubs.

This should be a much better set.
The CR-18 rims are quite stout.
They'll true & TENSION for $20 additional. Money well spent, and you're still $10 ahead.
