    Rhyno LX

    get right to the queston here, would LX hubs hold up under freeride style riding, or should i save more money and buy some beefier wheels
    "I'm; young enough to know the right car to buy yet grown enough not to put rims on it. I got that 6-deuce, with curtains, so you can't see me and I didn't even have to put tints on it."

    Depends on how big you are and how big you go. LX hubs are decent hubs plus they're cheap to replace

    It might be worth your while to look at better wheels. I love my XT / Rhyno's to death but I'm not hitting anything close to 6" even though I am bigger than you
