Alternative to Phatso rims (Wide Low Fat)

Hi, first post, thought I'd get all of your opinons on this one:

About 8 years ago I built up a beautiful DH MB. Sintesi frame, Marzocchi air and oil suspension, Pro shift rear mech and A lovely X-lite Phatso rim on the back. At the time I could only afford to have one wheel made up, and I've just never got round to biulding the front. Until now. For those of you that don't know what the Phatso rim is, it's very wide, very low profile and built of nothing on this earth. Practically indistrucable!

X-lite don't make the Phatso rim any more and I need a replacement rim that is as wide and as low profile as possible. It can be as heavy as the Phatso, but ligther (because it'll be the front) would be better. Oh, and black in colour.

Can anyone help me? I need a rim that is going to match the Phatso. It needs to be flat. I don't want a curved inner to the rim. I want it flat like the X-lite.

Thanks.


Kudrun.

Thank you. Those will do nicely. 65mm Width!! I might put it on the back.

Any one else got any alternatives?
