First off, before Raiyn gets nasty with you, it's agains't forum rules to use "Aol'ese"(u in stead of you, 2 instead of to/too, etc.)

But welcome to the forum!

The Sun Rynolites are good rims are pretty cheap. They usually come laced to an LX/XT hub. Also, what spoke count are you using right now? If your already using 36h rims then you might want to try and get a pair of 40h tandem wheels.

If you mess up the tandem wheels, I don't know what to tell you...

Nah. On second thought, if you could post a fuller intro in the Introductions forum, that would be great. You sound like a mtb'er or something like that. I don't think the General Cycling forum quite fit what you need...

If you wanted to run 24's, you could probably find some double wall 48-spoke 24" rims. The Alex '303' is one rim you could look for, it's on one of DK's 24" bikes.
