    I need a source for 20"(406) rims

    I am looking to build a stronger set of wheels for my Dahon Silvertip and and my Mercier Nano but I am having trouble finding a source for rims other than buying a new complete wheel set and disassembling it.

    I found a couple of rims that fit the bill but I can't seem to find a good place to buy them. The Velocity Fusion rim or the Alex DA-16(discontinued?) have a 20"(406) rim with a 28h or 32h but where to find them? does anyone know an online dealer or a shop in NJ or NYC that can get these or something similar?

    Any BMX bike shop in the world can get you many different models of 406 rims. Wide to narrow, steel or alloy and on and on. Roger

    I emailed Velocity once and they were able to let me know that they carried the Velocity Uriel 406 wheel set. Maybe they still have some Fusion rims for you. velocity@velocityusa.com

    I also found this: http://www.everybicycletire.com/Shop...usion-406.aspx

    Not sure how reliable the website is...

    I had found that website too but it will not let you add the rims to your cart.

    I will try emailing velocity usa, thanks.

    You can get a variety from ebay from dana67301. Make sure you get the right 20" one though, they carry both.

    Thanks everyone, I suppose I should have focused more on bmx stuff from the start. I found a couple of sites (jrbicycles.com danscomp.com) that had rims that were right in line with what I need which is good because I just picked up another bike with 406 wheels, an origin 8 bully and I am now in the process of putting on disc brakes, so im going to be building a bunch of wheels. Thanks

    Well I want to thank everybody again for their help, I built up my wheels, I ended up getting some Velocity Aero Heat rims with unmachined sidewalls and they came out great.
